What are you believing God for in this new year? Romans 10:17 says “So faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” We need to know what God’s word says and what His promises are. Perhaps these scriptures might help:
Understand God’s word –Psalm 119:130 says” The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.” Note: God’s word is clear. He doesn’t lie so we can trust His word.
Pray God’s word- 2 Chronicles 7:14 says” If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Note: Be patient and wait on a word from God. He will answer.
Forgive others- Matthew 6:14-15 says “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly father will also forgive you. But if you don’t forgive others their sins, your father will not forgive your sins.” Note: Forgiveness is not always easy but it puts us in right standing with God. Seek His guidance if you are having trouble. You can do it.
Give freely– Luke 6:38 says “Give and it shall be given to you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Note: Plant a seed into your local church, a television ministry or anyone who has blessed you or made a difference in your life. Watch how it grows.
Hope & expect- Proverbs 23:18 says” There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.” Note: Praise God before the blessings come. Let Him know you trust Him. Expect nothing but the best from God.
Sometimes things don’t happen when and how we want them to. If you continue to honor God and obey His commandments you will see the results. Look for the signs, expect the wonders and miracles to take place. Trust the Lord for supernatural results. He can do whatever He wants to do no matter how things look. We just have to believe that. Pray and seek His loving face. God is love!!!!
