New Year 2016

New Year

01.01.16

As I listened to the fireworks last night and watched some of the celebrations going on around the world to usher in a new year, I wondered what that meant
to people. So much excitement seemed to be being generated and I wonder what the hopes and expectations really were. Our world is becoming quite small and very, very intense. So much uncertainty and fears of what is and what is not. Did you know that a majority of our fears never happen and yet they rule supreme over our life?
What are your specific hopes for this New Year? What is your accountability and responsibility for your part to initiate their manifestation into your life? Do you know that they will require changes in you? And these changes often come hidden in pressures and trials? First of all, determine what your hopes are; what the changes are you desire; and purpose a plan of action. Realize you will have opposition and must stay the course of your plan. Seek the wisdom of the Word of God, which has all the answers and direction you need. Realize that The Lord has a perfect plan for you so don't fear you are left out. Be specific in your prayers and see that your heart lines up with His Word. Also know that there is a preparation to take place to receive your answer and the fullness of your plan.
You cannot buy a doctor's coat and stethoscope, and then walk into a hospital declaring your self a surgeon with any reasonable support or evidence. The Word of God tells us to count the cost of our dream, our plan, and prepare for it.  So, what are your plans, your dreams, specifically for your new year? What is it that you really desire? Give it thought. God does. - And so does the devil.

Jeremiah 29:11 (12-13)  "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
