I hope you had a Blessed Christmas! This is our last Mid Week Faith Booster for 2011 and we are all looking ahead to another year 2012.
Deut 11.10-12 New Living Translation 10 For the land you are about to enter and take over is not like the land of Egypt from which you came, where you planted your seed and made irrigation ditches with your foot as in a vegetable garden.
11 Rather, the land you will soon take over is a land of hills and valleys with plenty of rain—
12 A land that the Lord your God cares for. He watches over it through each season of the year!
I believe we, as Christians are about to enter a year where God has promised everything we need to succeed. No matter what 2011 held, you have to leave it behind because 2012 offers you a fresh start with a clean slate.
Isaiah 43.25 I—yes, I alone—will blot out your sins for my own sake and will never think of them again.
So you need to close the door on 2011 this coming weekend and think about it’s failures and successes no more.
Next year is not going to be flat and monotonous, it’s a land of hills and valleys.
Remember Deut 11.11 said 11 Rather the land you will soon take over is a land of hills and valleys with plenty of rain.
Psalm 23 1 The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need.
2 He lets me rest in green meadows, he leads me beside peaceful streams.
3 He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honour to his name.
4 Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.
5 You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honour me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.
6 Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.
So not matter what 2012 holds God is with you all the way He will never leave of forsake you and He will provide for you every day if you just stay within His Word.
Elizabeth and I pray you experience the reality of God with you this New Year season and right through 2012.
Blessings and love in Christ.
