This year might not have been all that you want it to be. It might not have been a great one or your very best. It also might not have been the best year for you financially. It’s even possible that you are in one situation or you about to enter one as you read this letter. It’s possible that there are those you would have loved to have around you in this season of celebrations but for one reason or another, they are either out of your life or they are far away. Among us are many that are hurting; many that are in silent hell in their marriages; many that are in their hospital beds and many that are out of job and not sure how they are going to pay their next bill.
It can be hard to see past where you are right now but irrespective of your circumstances today and in whatever street of life you are, I want you to always remember that God is enough for you to triumph. His mercy and grace are the reason you are still here. He is bigger than any of your setbacks, His ability outshines your inabilities, and He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above and beyond what you could ever imagine, ask or think.
Whatever it is that you’re believing God for, just hold on. Ephesians 3:20 (MSG) says, “God can do anything, you know — far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us”.
I know a lot has happened to you, enough to erase your faith in Him, but I am encouraging you to make room for Him to do something new. God is not condemning you, He is able to release everything that belongs to you once you open up to what He has to offer. God is the God of miracles. He is the creator of ALL things. He is not limited to man’s fears or lack. He cannot be contained. He is more than a provider. God is your everything. What God intended for you goes far beyond anything you can imagine. Don’t keep quiet in that situation, don’t settle for mediocrity when you have a God who is able to do anything. Go ahead and ASK! Go ahead and give your faith a TARGET.
Let knowing that He that has called you is faithful and is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above ALL that you could ever ask, think or imagine be your daily inspiration to stand strong and keep pressing forward. This year might not have been all that you want it to be BUT never lose hope, hang on to God’s hand. Whatever it’s that you want, is already existing, activate your faith for it. God is able to do the impossible. He is able to miraculously show up and show out.
Your mistakes and problems are not enough to negate His promises no matter where you are today, or what happened to you yesterday, or how tough the year has been for you. Prepare for your blessings knowing that God is able to give you a new future filled with joy, fulfilment and abundance. He’s able to give you a forgotten past and a fresh future! Prepare for your blessings irrespective of how your situation makes you feel right now, knowing that The LORD is up to something, and HE has you on His mind! Prepare for your blessings knowing that He wants to give you a new start and a future that is better than anything you could ask for or even imagine.
There is a blessing in the pressing (Romans 8:28). You’re not your history and you will never be because your steps are ordered by God even in times of uncertainty. So go ahead, prepare for your blessings because God has an amazing plan for your life. He has a place of abundance in store for you! It’s a place where all your needs are supplied, a place of joy, happiness, and victory. Deuteronomy 28:11 says, God is about to lavish you with good things and make you abound in prosperity. He is about to give you children from your womb and make you fertile in every good thing.
It is my prayer that God will restore to you what you have lost. May He surprise you in these last few days of the year and may every desire of your heart be granted to you exceedingly abundantly above anything that you ask or think.
