As We Match Into Year 2012…

It is tragic to watch children of God draw plans and resolutions for God on how He will bless them come 2012; so many have even started fretting concerning them. They have drawn up long plans and resolutions for the Lord, hoping that He would bless it. I can hear you argue you are doing this because you want to please the Lord. A good thing, but remember, Hebrews 11:6 clearly states that He rewards those who seek Him diligently, who come to Him. You don’t go into your mind to dig up ways you think is best to please Him come 2012, He must show you or your works will become idols detestable to Him! Romans 8:14 states clearly that only those led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God. If I may ask, who led you to draw up those plans and resolutions for the year 2012? Over the years you have done this ‘good thing’, how has it prospered in your hands? Remember, a good thing is not necessarily a godly thing! God has no problem blessing you in the year 2012 if He tarries. It had been written long ago and settled concerning you before you were even born. “Then the Lord said to Abram ‘know this for certain: your offspring will be strangers in a land that does not belong to them; they will be enslaved and oppressed 400 years. However, I will judge the nation they serve and afterwards they will go out with many possessions.’” Genesis 15: 13-14. Because Abraham is the father of us all, all the blessings and promises that were given to him are equally ours. Therefore, know for sure that all promises and blessings that the Lord had spoken concerning you will come to pass, none will fail because He gave His sure word; however, note this: God has a goal in mind! This same scripture in Acts 7:7, the Lord added that they will not only come out, they will come out to worship Him. By Revelation 5:10 it was clearer: “You made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they will reign on the earth.” Know for certain that when the Lord gave His covenant to Abraham it was sealed with blood and it cannot be reversed or changed. The Bible says in Numbers 23:19 “God is not a man who lies, or a son of man who changes His mind. Does He speak and not act, or promise and not fulfill?” The Lord kept His promise, He brought them out with His mighty Hand and He took them through wilderness experiences in order to teach them about Himself. Without their say so, God delivered them not because they had been faithful to Him but because a promise had been made by God and nothing will change it. When the fullness of time came, He did it. However, He took them through unfamiliar and tremendous experiences that were designed to make them know Him. He puts it more clearly in Exodus 19:4-6: “You have seen what I did to the Egyptians and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Me. Now if you will listen to Me and carefully keep My covenant you will be My own possession out of all the peoples although all the earth is Mine; and you will be My Kingdom of Priests and My holy nation…” This is the intention of God for saving them and bringing them out of the land of slavery. This intention of God has not changed! The blessing covenant of your life had been written long ago and sealed with the blood of Christ. The goal of God is not just to make you great until you become very great. Rather He wants you to become His priest, a holy people, belonging to Him to display His might, glory, power holiness and faithfulness upon the face of the earth! As we enter into the year 2012, your desire should be how you would follow and please Him. This you cannot plan before hand, but you will search out on a daily basis and He will show you how to accomplish this DAILY. Remember, His Word is a lamp for your feet and a light on your path (Psalm 119:105)! Only a step will be shown you at a time so you do not get carried away and run out on Him!!! God bless you.
