A very happy new year to you. See if this is talking about you., that is, if it resonates with your spirit.
This is your year to fly. I bet you didn’t know you had some wings. Well, spread them out. They were never meant to just be tucked by your side. Yes, spread those wings now. Mount up, begin to gain altitude and fly.
Fly, fly, fly, in Jesus’ name.This is your year to fly. Mount up, begin to gain altitude and fly. #NewYear #Prophecy Click To Tweet
The key to doing this consistently is seen in Isaiah 40:31 (KJV).
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
You see, motion comes in different ways. It can be by crawling, walking, running, etc. And we need to be moving. It is one of the things that identify us as living beings. Stagnation, on the other hand, is not funny at all. It can be so frustrating.
In the new year, make it your habit to spend quality time with God. When you do, it’s like filling your tank with jet fuel and rotating the propellers. There’s no other way to go but up, and that, at incredible speed. That means you get to your destination a lot faster than those using the other means of motion.
Besides, as you ascend up into the clear blue sky, you rise above the obstacles that would have stopped or slowed you down. They no longer have the power to affect you. You can soar undeterred.Spend quality time with God this year and soar to your goals undetterred. #Prophecy Click To Tweet
But after a while, you may begin to run low on fuel and have to land. But you will still be able to taxi for a bit, fast at first (running), then slowly (walking). Okay, it’s time to enter your closet again. Cool off in the presence of your Maker. As you worship Him, He works on you. His goal: the three R’s (Repair, Renew, Refuel).
Then you’re ready to lift off again.
It’s gonna be an exciting year. Put God at the centre of your life and fly, fly, fly.
If you have not accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, pray this short prayer because He is the only way to God:
PRAYER FOR SALVATION
Almighty God, I repent of my sins and ask you to forgive me. I receive the work Jesus did for me by shedding His blood for my sins. Write my name in the Lamb’s Book of Life and send your Spirit to live in my heart and teach me your word. I receive the grace to live a life that honours you henceforth in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Now, you are born again. Join a Bible-believing group of believers to help you learn, through studying the word of God and prayer, how to live and practise your faith. You are blessed in Jesus’ name.
