2020 Perspective Shift: Perhaps the
intense nature of the end of this
decade is not a foretelling of the
hardship to come, but rather the
shedding of the things that have
kept us bound to cycles of failure.
(Melissa Gabler) — What a great, great year to be alive! We GET to not only see the shift, we get to BE the shift. Yes, the glory of God is going to be not only seen, but known. And it’s not because things just got that bad, it’s because things and people (this includes you) are now in place for undeniable God elements. Get ready.
May your home be filled with different conversation in the year to come—different because you are no longer discussing threats and defeats but hopes and victories. “Answer my prayers, O True God, the righteous, who makes me right. I was hopelessly surrounded, and You rescued me. Once again hear me; hide me in Your favor; bring victory in defeat and hope in hopelessness.” (Ps.4:1, The Voice)
Father’s strength and wisdom are available for weary people to take the first step after not moving against things that have defeated them in the last year. The time of not doing something about defeating-factors is over. The first step will be admitting there is a problem and wanting the answer, even if it means we have to put forth some effort and make some changes. The first step will be to not wait for others and not wait for those circumstances to change, but begin the change in us. Ps.37:23— “The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step].” (Amp)
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. . . !!!!!”
Call on the name of Jesus throughout the year. Let His name be upon your lips. You will invoke His Name and see Him heal, see Him deliver others out of impossible strongholds of bondage and strongholds of fear. You will invoke His Name and see how marvelously He delivers you from the threat of harm, from bullies, from a violent spouse or parent or other relative. You will see God deliver elderly people from abuse by their children and others. You will invoke the Name of Jesus and the atmosphere will change.
