2016: Year Of Overwhelming Grace, Abundance And Exploits
Luke 4:19 “To Proclaim The Accepted And Acceptable Year Of The Lord, the Day When Salvation And The Free Favours Of God Profusely Abound”. (Amp) Isaiah 60: 1-2 “Arise, Shine; for thy light is come and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth and gross darkness the people; but The Lord Shall Arise Upon Thee and His Glory Shall Be Seen Upon Thee”.
AFTER spending extensive time in God’s presence, God is saying YEAR 2016 is a year of OVERWHELMING GRACE, ABUNDANCE AND EXPLOITS. It is also a Year of GREAT WONDERS IN YOUR LIFE. (Psalm 136:4 “To Whom alone DOETH GREAT WONDERS: for His mercy endureth forever”). For the believer, the death and resurrection of Jesus, the LAMB of God has made every year that we are here under God, the acceptable Year of God’s Grace, Favour, Blessings and Breakthroughs.
Despite the negative postulations from the marketplace by the policy makers and executors, the Minister of Finance, etc., that Year 2016 will be a tough year, we are assured by the Word of God that when there is a CASTING DOWN in the Nations, those who belong to God will have a LIFTING UP (Job 22:29). Despite the gross darkness that will overtake the people of the world, God has promised that it shall be the time of ARISING AND SHINNING for those in the Kingdom of God.
We have never been sustained by the economy of nations. The EL-SHADDAI Himself, Who is JEHOVAH JIREH, has been the One providing for us. No nation has been able to adequately furnish an egalitarian society, where nobody is in need. But our God will always supply all our needs according to His riches in glory, by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). He is the only One who has the capacity to furnish sumptuous provisions in the wilderness of this world. God says in the time of famine, we would be adequately sustained. Psalm 37:19 “They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.” Things that were difficult for others will be very easy for us.
We are not going to fix our eyes on the budget of the nations. We are going to fix our eyes on the Maker of Heaven and Earth from Whom our help will always come. Isaiah 26: 3-4 “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: BECAUSE HE TRUSTETH IN THEE. TRUST YE IN THE LORD, FOREVER: for in the LORD JEHOVAH, is EVERLASTING STRENGTH”. 2016 is a year that we have to trust God continuously, not trusting in the arm of the flesh but RELYING ON GOD completely and absolutely. In year 2016, it shall not be by human power or might.
It shall be by the favour of the Almighty God. Psalm 5:12 “For Thou LORD, wilt bless the righteous; WITH FAVOUR WILT THOU COMPASS HIM AS WITH A SHIELD”. Receive GOD’s GRACE for 2016 in JESUS MIGHTY NAME. Amen. Daniel 11:32 “but the people that DO KNOW THEIR GOD shall BE STRONG AND DO EXPLOITS”. Welcome to the Year of God’s Overwhelming Grace, Abundance and Exploits. You will blossom, prosper and make progress this year in JESUS MIGHTY NAME. Amen.
PRAYER: Father God, I thank You for the Year 2016. I am grateful for the way you kept me in 2015. I come today in the Name of Jesus, to dedicate 2016 to You, as a year of Your Overwhelming Grace, Abundance and Exploits. In Jesus Name, I take refuge in You my Heavenly Father. You are my refuge, strength, fortress and help throughout 2016. I receive Your Grace and Great Wonders in 2016.
