May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace. Praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who takes care of us. He doesn’t withhold any good thing from us and He has assured us that He will never leave us nor forsake us. With this assurance we know that whether we walk through fire or through deep waters, He is with us. When enemies surround us, He will protect us. I want us to thank Him for everything He has done, everything He is doing, and everything He will do in our future.
I WELCOME Y’ALL TO 2014.
2014 is going to be a great year. As a matter of fact, I believe it is going to be the best year in our lives. God will do all He has promised and He will see us through successfully. David said in Psalm 37:18, 19 (NLT) that “Day to day the Lord takes care of the innocent and they will receive an inheritance that last forever. They will not be disgraced in hard times; even in famine they will have more than enough” Hallelujah!
The Lord will take care of us in 2014 and we will receive blessings that last forever. We will not be disgraced when Storms hit us and in famine or when the world is crying in times of difficulties, we will have more than enough. In verse 25 of the same Chapter, He added “Once I was young, and now I am old. Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned or their children begging for bread.” It is my prayer that none of us beg for anything this year in Jesus’ Name. Amen
The last thing I want to talk about is that it is becoming the norm these days that believers all over the world come up with theme for the year; “my year of breakthrough”, “my year of promotion”, “My year of double portion”, “my year of purity”, “my year of favour” etc. it’s all good But 2014 is the Year of the Lord. Don’t sit idle and expect miracle to happen. Get up and do something. Jesus can come this year therefore let us make every effort to brighten the corner where we find ourselves. Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. (Hebrews 12:14, NIV). Don’t be consumed by your church theme for year while you neglect some of the basic things our Lord God requires from us. For instance don’t be greedy and selfish in seeking promotion because “it’s your year of promotion”. Instead keep doing your best; Love your colleagues like yourself, and do your work as pleasing unto God for promotion comes from the Lord. Psalm 75:6.
I trust you are praying continually for me. I pray for you too. No one shall be able to stand against us this year as God has already defeated our enemies. The Battle is not yours, but God’s. God bless us!
