This year, is the acceptable year of the LORD (Luke 4:19); the year of the LORD’S Favour. The year of God’s Great Benediction, Doxology and Yadah Judah Praise.


Welcome to a very PROPHETIC AND SPECIAL YEAR. This is the year that the LORD has made; a very BLESSED year that starts ON A SUNDAY. This is a very uncommon year that God has chosen to do many GREAT THINGS in the lives of His people. This year, is the acceptable year of the LORD (Luke 4:19); the year of the LORD’S Favour. The year of God’s Great Benediction, Doxology and Yadah Judah Praise. Many great things will happen in our lives that will result in jubilation. Psalm 40:2-3 “He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, AND SET MY FEET UPON A ROCK, and established my goings; AND HE HATH PUT A NEW SONG IN MY MOUTH, even PRAISE UNTO OUR GOD: many SHALL SEE IT, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD… Despite the economic recession, the blessings of God will be conspicuous and visible in the lives of His people (Isaiah 60:1-5).

This is obviously a year of unlimited opportunities with limitless overflow of God’s Supernatural Grace. Ephesians 2:7 “That in the ages to come HE MIGHT SHEW THE EXCEEDING RICHES OF HIS GRACE in His kindness TOWARD US through CHRIST JESUS.” God is going to be moving speedily in our lives as we await the future return of our LORD JESUS CHRIST. This is an ANOINTED YEAR of Supernatural acceleration, impacts and exploits. (1 Kings 18:46 and Daniel 11:32). God has also decided that this year is a very SPECIAL YEAR FOR RESTORATION AND PROVISION.

Joel 2:25 “AND I WILL RESTORE TO YOU the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, My great army, which I sent among you.” GOD WILL RESTORE lost opportunities, dreams, resources, relationships. And He is making available, abundant resources to execute our vision, dreams, goals and aspirations. In this New Year, INCOME WILL ALWAYS BE GREATER THAN EXPENDITURE. John 6:13 “Therefore, they gathered them together, and filled 12 baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, WHICH REMAINED OVER AND ABOVE unto them that had eaten.” God has also decided that (Ephesians 3:20) will be fulfilled in our lives. WHAT IS OUR ROLE IN God’s Prophetic Agenda as He has given us OPEN CERTIFIED CHEQUE TO CASH:- (1) THINK BIG in the Absoluteness, Omnipotence, Sovereignty of our God.

With God in our lives, nothing shall be impossible (Luke 1:37). This is not A YEAR TO THINK SMALL. God says nothing will be restrained from you if you think big with positive imaginations. (2) ADJUST YOUR PRAYER REQUESTS. Ephesians 3:20 “Now unto Him that is ABLE TO DO EXCEEDING ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL THAT WE ASK OR THINK, according to the power that worketh in us.” ASK BIG. This is a year to receive MEGA RESPONSES from God. (3) LIVE BIG. The just shall live by faith. This year, you will surely live in the reality of God’s provision for your life. The LORD Himself is your Shepherd and you shall not want. Your case is obviously different. When there is a casting down, you will have a lifting up. Luke 1:58 “And her neighbours and her cousins heard how THE LORD HAD SHEWED GREAT MERCY UPON HER; and THEY REJOICED with her.”

PRAYER: Father God, I thank You for the New Year and I run to You in the Name of the LORD JESUS. I make You my Refuge and Fortress in this New Year. I submit to your Prophetic Mandate for the year. I declare the Lordship and Rulership of JESUS over my life, and cover the year with the Blood of JESUS, as it is a special year of blessing in my life. Amen.
