The Word records: “Be it done to you according to your faith.” How much faith do you have? The size of a mustard seed? That WILL work! To be ready for 2012 you have to have faith. God has plans for you but on your part, faith is required. The Prophet Zechariah told the people that if you cannot see it then God won’t do it! Strong language.
What mountains are you facing in 2012?
What mountain is your family facing?
What will you need in 2012 to be successful? What new skills will you need to develop? Will you need more courage or faith?
Where will the enemy attack you? What temptations will you face that you need to be ready for? God has made a way of escape and you need not fall!
Where will you need to help your family in 2012? Are your kids growing in the Lord? Do they have a growth plan? Can you see the favor of the Lord on you and your family? If not, then make that a regular request. I pray daily that favor would cover my family like a blanket on a cold winter night. God’s favor is our shield.
I believe 2012 will be the greatest year my family or Faith Promise has ever experienced. I am looking for miracles daily. I am looking for people to be saved every day this year as Faith Promise shares their faith daily. I look for the greatest growth we have ever experienced. I believe God will move on the North Knox Campus launch like never before – Ephesians 3:20. I believe my kids will grow closer to Jesus than ever before. I will watch my youngest son, Zac, get married to an awesome woman of God this new year. I will see my new book grow legs and get into the hands of 10,000s of thousands of hands and hearts.
My daughter will graduate as a Registered Nurse this year and possibly give us our first grandchild. Michele and I will grow closer this year and God will use us like never before. This year at Faith Promise we will see more leaders rise up and more volunteers than ever before. We will give more money to Jesus than ever before. This year the heart of generosity will grow at Faith Promise and the Lord will be blessed and proud of us.
Yes, I’m ready for just some of what the Lord will do, are you? What are you believing for? The list I just gave you is only a part of what I am trusting God for. I am praying for you that you will grow in your faith, favor, obedience, and love of the Lord this New Year!
