Aligning Ourselves With God In 2022!

It’s the beginning of the year, here we are with our goals and resolutions, waiting to start or maybe some of us have started on them already. Having goals and resolutions are not bad things to have, specially if you follow through for the rest of your life, because that’s what we should do, make positive changes that are not temporary but that will transform us into better human beings for the rest of our lives. This year I am planning to do just that but as a follower of Christ I am taking it a little further and aligning my goals, resolutions and dreams with God’s will and purpose for my life! I dont know about you but I felt the power of God when I thought alignment with God’s will and purpose. We know that He already wants the best for us, we know that He has thought about our future and we know that He loves us. (Jeremiah 29:11). Some of us right now, are able to see beyond our natural eyes can see and praise God for that, then some of us are clouded and uncertain, For those who are able to see beyond, I just encourage you to share that hope, share that vision and continue to share that faith with those who’s vision is still blurry. For those who are uncertain, I encourage you to seek God’s word, seek His kingdom above anything else that’s in your life (Matthew 6:33), Walk by faith specially when you dont see anything happening, take time to sit quietly and envision all that God has promised you and what His word says about you. Let us pray.

Abba, please forgive us if we’ve pushed you away, if we have believed our fears over you, if we have seen nothing and embraced nothing, forgive us if we’ve aimlessly wandered without direction in desperation and isolation, we receive your forgiveness and we invite you right now to live in our hearts to take charge of our feelings and to command our thoughts, let us align ourselves with your favor with your freedom, your love, forgiveness, let us flow in your bountiful grace. We ask that in the times when we are weak we remember that you are strong! Let us remember in grief that your Joy is Power! We lift this year up to you with an expectant heart and faith filled heart that You are who You say You are and that You DO NOT change! Thank you for your continuos love and mercy. Thank you for your much wanted and needed presence. Thank you for what you already have planned for my life and I receive the flood of your blessings. Lord, I want to walk in Freedom and Favor not of material things but in spirit to fullfil your purpose and will for my life. In Jesus name Amen!

My God…

I’m not a fixer of people or problems, if I ever choose to put myself in a place where I can help guide someone In a better situation or to give hope to an impossible situation, it’s only because I know the one who can. I know this first hand because God has taken me out of the darkness and into the light and He has lifted me over quicksand, He has pulled me out of the depths of despair and He has given me life in the midst of death. God of Abraham, God of Isaac and Jacob, the same today, the same tomorrow and forever more, the God of Esther, Sara and David that same God who showed mercy and grace to them has shown the same for me. The God who loves unconditionally and forgives those who ask for forgiveness, the God who guides and imparts wisdom, the God who comes in and dines with you because when He knocked you opened the door, This amazing and sovereign God who directs with a father’s love and edifies you at the same time. My Father who is in heaven, He has saved me from myself and this world, He has shown me that there’s more to living and there’s more to Him. I don’t know who this is for but if you’re in a place where you see no hope, where you feel you can’t be forgiven, a place where it’s lonely or too dark to see, I urge you to call out His name, the King of Kings, Jesus. When He shows up hold on to His hand and let Him fill you with hope, peace and love.

Father, you’re the one who knows why this was written today, you’re the one who sees that person right now, reading and praying and crying and needing you. Lord I ask that you show up right now, right this moment, that one who needs strength, the one who needs compassion, that one who needs a miracle, that one who needs a way out, that one who is lonely, the one who needs a father, show up right now, I know you are. I believe you are. Thank you amazing, wonderfull Father. In Jesus name Amen.
