In 2019 I am praying to see a lot of posts that start with:
“Hey, you guys, you’re not gonna believe this awesome report. . . !!!!!”
As the people of God assemble today may His people have a sense of the more that is to come of His purposes and His outpourings in 2019. May the hope of receiving and participating fill their hearts with expectancy. “In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary–we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!” (Rom.5:5, Msg)
As the people of God assemble today, may they be infused with Holy Spirit power to be fruitful all the year ahead. May vision and empowerment come to each one. I pray that the fruit our Lord gives you and your church this year will be like the net the disciples had to call for help to draw in. May there be such a bounty that the net would be near bursting with the catch. May your net be strong and hold. “So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net to land, full of large fish, 153 of them; and [though] there were so many of them, the net was not torn.” (Jn.21:11, Amp)
Take all your needs and problems and stack them up. When you see how great they stack up, then put that stack next to Almighty God. He is greater than ALL your need. “. . . God is greater than our worried hearts and knows more about us than we do ourselves.” (1Jn.3:20, Msg)
As the people of God assemble today, may they be strengthened, encouraged, equipped and comforted by the gifts of Christ (Eph.4:11-12) and the gifts of the Holy Spirit (1Cor.14:3) for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
May the Lord keep us in His timing by giving us health and prosperity so that we may be everything we need to be for our families for as long as we need to be it. May there be physical strength and mental acuity for fulfilling our responsibilities to loved ones and those the Lord has connected us to for His Kingdom purposes. May the Lord keep us from illness and disease that we may walk in His timing without faltering or coming up short of fulfillment. “Moses was 120 years old when he died. His eyesight was sharp; he still walked with a spring in his step.” (Deut.34:7, Msg)
As the people of God assemble today, may the Lord enable them to step beyond issues that would otherwise hinder their hearing the truths of His Word. May issues not be considered or guarded as the Word of God is spoken. May those issues not be a screen that the Word has to get through before the Word can be considered for repentance and/or growth. May personal issues, and issues with others who are present in the meeting, take a back seat to the life and delivering power of the Word of God. Psa 81:13 “Oh, that My people would listen to Me, that Israel would walk in My ways! 14 Speedily then I would subdue their enemies and turn My hand against their adversaries.” (Amp)
