New Year New Me
A few weeks ago the Lord gave me a word that 2019 was not going to be just another ordinary year, no way. In 2019 He is going to do big things in big people lives. Below is the exact, unedited word the Lord gave me:
January 29, 2019
2019 is a year of growth, personal breakthrough, breaking of old negative patterns of living and negative thoughts. It is a year that on the surface is going to be an obscure year but it is going to be a year of monumental growth, change and fruitfulness. The old things that haunt people are going to die and be buried and never arise again. The enemy’s strongholds are going to break and he is going to “move on”.
Places where he has relented will be released
Places that were once hopeless will become joyful and fruitful
Relationships will deepen and strengthen, taking back territory that was once lost
Anger will be replaced with laughter
Doubt will be replaced with confidence
Frustration will be replaced with joy
Separation will be replaced with closeness and unity
Family and friends will become a source of strength, unity and victory
2019 is going to be a BIG year……hold on
Battles that have seemed to have gone on forever will unexpectedly turn into victories. Discouragement will be wiped out, put down and overcome. Joy will show up in the most unexpected places and unusual favor will be granted where oppression and disadvantage once ruled.
This is a season that has been building for years and decades and is now at our doorsteps, it has arrived right where you live, step into it. Places where you once would doubt will be so different you won’t even recognize where you are. The fog has lifted, the rain has come and now is the season.
Around the same time I got this word from the Lord I came across this brief video about New Year New Me. Take a few minutes and check it out:
I loved the phrase "Stern Pertinacity" which is a quality of sticking with something, no matter what. It's a type of persistent determination. People who have pertinacity won't give up, and they stick with things doggedly.
At this early stage of this blog I know each of you personally. You are all this type of men. You are all very capable, outstanding men of God, who are gifted, talented and important to your friends and family. I consider myself privileged to call each of you son, friend and brothers in the Lord. I call out in each of you to live with the stern pertinacity God has given you and to live your lives to the full. I leave you with this exhortation from the Lord:
John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
Live Abundantly this week.
