A woman of God whom I love and cherish so dearly sent me this word just as the year 2008 was drawing to a close. She said “It will be a year “without limits”! I meditated on it for some time and great excitement began to well up inside of me. The mere thought of the fact that in 2009, God’s people will all be able to do and receive exceedingly abundant things that are beyond our imagination is mind blowing! Comparing these divine words to what the world’s renowned analysts predict 2009 to bring makes it the more exciting!
Beloved, I am excited about 2009. To overcome any limitations in my life, I have determined in my heart to walk ever more closely with the Lord this year. I want to sit at His feet, learn of Him so that I may be more like Him and less like what the world expects. I want to trust and depend on Him completely for my very existence and to be led by Him every waking moment. I want Him to reveal His ways to me just as He did to his servant Moses. I want to walk worthy of His call upon my life, ensuring that He is well pleased with me on every side and that the outward appearance that you see will mirror the inward beauty that God sees and desires. In so doing, I will be preparing myself (and by extension my household ) for His glorious appearing, whenever He chooses to come.
As I made this desire known to the Lord in prayer, this was the response He gave me through His word I read this morning:
Happy are those who don’t listen to the wicked, who don’t go where sinners go, who don’t do what evil people do. They love the Lord’s teachings, and they think about those teachings day and night. They are strong, like a tree planted by a river . The tree produces fruit in season, and its leaves don’t die. Everything they do will succeed…
Amazing grace! How sweet the sound of it all. I invite you to take this position too in 2009 and watch God catapult you from grass to grace..
Have a blessed and fruitful walk with the Lord in 2009. I love you and I am praying for you.
