Do not be afraid! Do not worry! Have I not commanded you? I am giving you strength and courage and I’m with you every step you take! (Joshua 1:9)
As we have entered into this new month and new year of 2020 and even a new decade - I sense the Lord is saying that He wants us to trust Him and remember that He is with us and that His faithfulness and His grace still sustains us!
I believe that there are many who are trusting God and believing Him for miracles and breakthroughs in this new year. God is a good father and His promises for our lives are yes and amen! In the name of Jesus I prophesy that whatever you are believing God for in this year will surely come to pass according to His will as you continue to trust Him and lay your life down completely before Him in total surrender.
As I look back on 2019 I’m beyond humbled of my Fathers goodness and faithfulness. My circumstances haven’t exactly met my expectations every time and there has been some areas of my life where I was asking God: “Where are you in this?” Sometimes in life it can almost feel like God is hiding or that He’s left us to take care of our stuff all by ourselves! But the Bible is full of His promises of love and hope! Our loving Father has promised us that ALL things will work together for good for those who love Him! (Romans 8:28) It may not always look like we thought or expected it to be but when we lay it all down at His feet He has promised us that He will lead us and guide us continually! He wants to give us water when we are dry and restore our strength. We will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.”(Isaiah 58:11)
2019 was for me a year of continually surrendering my life to Him again and again! As I continued to trust in His promises for my life, and decree and declare His promises over my life and contend in the secret place, I could sense a shift - not always in my circumstances but on the inside of me. The Lord our Heavenly Father says in Zephaniah 3:17 “The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”
When we trust God for who He says He is - a mighty warrior who saves - there will be a shift taking place in our lives! I have seen a glimpse of this in 2019 and I trust God for more in 2020! I want to invite you to jump in the river of His love that casts out all fear in 2020! No more holding back no more delay! Take that step of faith forward! The Lord our God who is mighty to save is surely a way maker, a miracle worker, a promise keeper and a light in the darkness! Dare to trust Him today and hold on to Jesus! In 2020 The Lord is guiding you to living or refreshing waters, He is restoring your strength and He is making you to be like an ever flowing spring! Surely there is hope for you; surely there is a future for you! As the Bible says in Jeremiah 29:11 (The message):
“Trust that God knows what He is doing and that He has it all planned out - plans to take care of you and not to abandon you; plans to give you a hope and a future! “
