My Word for 2018 is
A word can be a meditation, a reminder, a promise of what God has in store for us.
In the 4 years I’ve been choosing a word for the year, my life has certainly changed for the better.
Previous words were FOCUS, ABIDE, JESUS. I have truly understood that God gave me these words for a reason indeed. For example, in 2017 JESUS was the only one that could have saved me from the depression I went through towards the end of the year. I can truly testify that I experienced the true love of God through His only begotten Son – JESUS who pulled me out of the darkness of depression. JESUS took my mistakes, worries and anxieties and replaced them with Love, Hope, Peace, Joy etc. There is power in the name of JESUS.
Another example, in 2016 ABIDE was the word that truly changed the course of that year, perhaps my life. I experienced a move of God in all areas of my life. A lot of people said that year was the hardest year but I experienced the opposite. I received answers to prayers, MASSIVE turnaround in my story, my shame was turned to glory. Throughout that year I learnt that when you truly seek God and abide in Him there will be an answer to all prayers, and all godly desires will be met. John 15:7 NKJV
I encourage you to find your word for this year if you haven’t already. It will not only help you spiritually but in all areas of your life.
Back in December while I was asking God for a word for 2018, the Holy Spirit said Freedom. At first, I was reluctant and replied “but I am Free already!”. So, I dug deeper through the scriptures and prayed. He reassured me.
John 8:36 reads, So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
Galatians 5:1 reads, It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
I can only see parts of the picture right now, but I know He will reveal the full picture of His heart and intentions for me this year.
My prayer for you today is that you too will experience the FREEDOM of Christ in all areas of your life this year. May you be free to worship Him, live up to your full potential. May you be delivered from every cycles of sin, mistake, shame, worry, unforgiveness, financial struggle, generational /family curse, depression, sickness, anxiety and stronghold in Jesus name, Amen.
