Just A Word

At the end of each year, I listen out for what God would say to me for the following year. I don’t wait for the church to announce a theme; I wait on God for a direct, personal word. It defines every area of my family, personal, ministry and career life. It helps me set my goals and ambitions for the year. I take it very seriously. Are you like that? Are you listening to God now? Or are you just waiting for the church to declare another year of unlimited breakthrough and prosperity? Don’t get me wrong, corporate word and theme is essential. But what is God’s word for you?

Towards the end of 2010, God said to me and my wife to “acquaint ourselves with God, make peace with Him and good will come to us”. Hence we sought God’s face regarding many things, we served God (and still do) relentlessly and He held up His side of the agreement; we experienced the Lord’s goodness in many ways.

As we draw closer to 2012, make up your mind; enough is enough!
Quit the hype about new year resolutions and seek God for a word!
Quit your dependence on man and seek God for a word!
Quit following the crowd and seek God for a word!
A word from God is all you need; it will give you direction and help you set clear goals for success in the new year.
A word from God for you will help you align your desires with His will.
A word is all you need and you can be sure that as you follow it through, 2012 will be a great year for you.

Yes Lord, speak… I’m waiting on You!

  1. Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They
    will soar on the wings like eagles.” Isaiah 40:31.

    The storms do not have to overcome us. We can allow God’s power to lift us above them. God enables us to ride the winds of the storm that bring sickness, tragedy, failure, and disappointment into our lives. We can soar above the storm. Remember, it is not the burdens of life that weigh us down, it is how we handle them.
