Did you know that God has plans for you and that none of them includes defeat? Did you also know that this year could in fact be the year that you experience a sudden turn around? Realize though that we have a part to play. We must enter the new year with a right mental attitude and have confident expectation.

Let’s look at Jeremiah 29:11 in the Amplified Bible:

"'For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord. ‘Plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.’"

I believe with all my heart that if you will purposefully believe the Word of the Lord, mix faith with it, and act on it, you will begin to see results almost immediately. God’s Word contains the very sustenance of God Himself. When you choose to believe it, mix faith with it, and act on it, you give God entrance into your situation - Into your life - Into your family - Into your finances.

Now let’s look at Romans 8:31:

"What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?"

I like to say it like this: ‘If God is for you [and we know He is] it doesn’t matter who may be against you.’ In other words, ‘If God is for you, you can’t lose.’

Sometimes we go through things, and it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. That’s why we have to keep looking to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith (refer to Hebrews 12:2). If we will keep our eyes on Jesus and stay in faith, we will cross the finish line. The way we keep our eyes on Jesus is by keeping our eyes on the Word.

I’ll close with this scripture:

"It shall be when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry trees, then you shall Advance Quickly. For then the Lord will go before you to strike the camp of the Philistines." (2 Samuel 5:24 – NKJV)

Everything the enemy has been doing to stop you, God’s gonna use to advance you!

Happy New Year!
