It’s January 1st, 2010. Praise God. We’ve made it. It’s a new day. God is building upon former stones. Taking us higher. Drawing us closer to His heart.
God opposes the proud, but He gives grace to the humble. Be encouraged. We have an opportunity to humble ourselves before the Lord and receive His grace.
He who humbles himself during this season will have clearer vision for the coming year. We will drive distraction from us, chosing friendship with the Lord rather than friendship with the world. God will draw near to us as we draw near to Him. Personal responsibility is required. He doesn’t do it all while we sit back and wait.
That is the #1 lesson I think God spoke to me in 2009: Take responsbility. Father God has given us many promises, but many of them hinge upon our response to hearing. Do we line ourselves up with the Word of God, or do we sit idly by putting all the onus on God?
May we each hear the Word of truth more clearly than before. May 2010 be the year act on His Word, and see Him fulfill His promises which we formerly thought would take forever.
