I’m glad that we all have been able to make it this far, as we welcome 2017. Have you been able to take a moment to reflect on the past year? How was the year to you? A great year or a year full of challenges? Did you make profits or loss? Did you achieve anything this year?
I will advise you to make a list of all that you achieve or accomplished in 2016. What would you like to accomplish in 2017?
I will advise you to take some time and reflect on the New Year and make a list of goals (if you have not done so), remember to make big goals. Those goals that will challenge you, so that you can feel the joy of having accomplished something great.
In 2017, we are going to be taking the advantage of the significance of “seven”. Time will not permit me to explore all the theological significant of seven, but I could quickly remind you that according to the Biblical account of creation, God did all is works in six days and rested on the seventh day, which made the seventh day special in the Old Testament. As a result of the fact that God rested on the seventh day, 2017 to me is my year of rest and I know that you would like to have rest as well. Rest means eating the fruits of your labor. 2016 was been a year of sowing seeds and labor, but here comes another un-identical year full of grace and abundance of light.
David was a king after God’s heart; he lived a life of labor, war, fear, and turmoil. But at the appointed time, the Lord gave him rest 1Kings 5:4. There are more people in the Bible whom the Lord gave rest: Joshua 21:44, 2 Chronicles 20:30.
My prayer for you in 2017, is that God will give you rest in all live dimensions and ramifications. We are going to be working together to have those goals accomplished in 2017 because it is a year of reaping, the reaping of joy, abundance, increment, health, finances, etc.
“…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. (Psalm 30:5).
I look forward to seeing you on the other side!
Happy New Year!!!
