Dearly Beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator, Maker, and Ever Unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible says, “Rejoice in the Lord Always. And again, I say rejoice in the Lord.” Many of you have taken new steps for this year with all your desires, ambitions, goals, and determination to achieve them. I Pray that God will fulfil all the desires of your heart.
On this happy occasion I wish you all, on behalf of my family, and God’s Love Ministries, a Very Happy New Year. May God’s name be glorified. I am glad to meet you all directly through this message, at your homes. You may be wondering how this year “2022” is going to be, after experiencing very hard years, 2020 and 2021. Well, the blessed word for this new year is from the Book of Isaiah 43:18,19, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness, and streams in the wasteland.”
God does not want you to think of the past years that caused misery in your life. Especially due to Corona many lost your dear ones. Some of you have been ill for various reasons. Some lost their jobs and had to go through financial crisis. These years were filled with troubles, death and destruction. God wants to reconstruct all the broken edges of your life. He will repair unpleasant incidents that happened in the past and bring about new changes into your life. He will do a new thing for you right now. So, you don’t have to feel upset about your future. He is a God who builds and does not pull you down. But this year you need to inherit the nature of Christ in you. God has placed before you certain conditions for you to follow in order that you may inherit God’s blessings for you and your children. Start family prayer in your homes, those of you who never have family prayer. Husbands love your wives as the Lord loves His church. Be kind to one another. Love each other for what you are. Wives must not only respect your husband’s but also understand their feelings. Children respect your parents as this is good in the sight of God. Keep your parents happy. When parents discuss about your marriage give ear to them. Never show your resentment to what they have to say. Then God will bless you.
Never fail to attend church service. Then God will bless you. Never refuse to go to church and keep wasting your time at home. Never speak ill about preachers. Make a commitment to God that you will live a life pleasing unto God. Daniel made a commitment saying that he will not eat of the delicacies’ offered to the king. Instead, he will eat ordinary food. He remained faithful to God. So, God exalted him and made him sit with kings and princes of Babylon. God will exalt you also when you make a commitment for Him. That you will remain truthful to God at all times. You will follow all that is told above in this message. It is all a reminder for the new year to be followed by you. God will then be pleased with you. He will make you the head and not the tail. You will be above and not beneath. Some of you might have gone through great loss during the period of Corona. And thereby ended up in depression. This year you shall experience double fold blessing. God will help you get back all that you have lost in your life, in the bygone years.
Dearly Beloved, Firstly, God wants to make you as a sharp threshing instrument. Isaiah 41:15 says, “See, I will make you into a threshing sledge, new and sharp, with many teeth. You will thresh the mountains and crush them, and reduce the hills to chaff.” This verse says, that God will make you as a sharp instrument so that you can face any problems that you come across, in the new year. He will make you sharper with wisdom, in knowledge and you shall have sharp understanding, to excel in your education, in your work spot, in your business and also in your family life. You will walk in wisdom. Even if thousands should fall at your right side, nothing will come near you. God will protect you. He will put a hedge of protection over you and watch over you as the apple of His eye. God’s word is a strong tower and those who come inside will be safe.
Secondly God wants to bless you with His abundant grace. Lamentation 3:22 & 23 says, Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him! You must hope in the Lord for all your dealings then He will bless you. God will place your family in the ark of Christ that will protect you during the storms, as He protected Noah and his family. God will meet you, if you search for him in the morning. Abraham who was known as the friend of God spoke to Him in the early hours of the day. God’s grace will provide you with new job, better scale of pay or an increment in your service or a promotion for which you are waiting for a long time. God’s grace will make you suitable to conceive and bear a child in the coming year.
Thirdly God wants to bless you with new strength. May be due to depression you would have lost all your strength. He wants to renew your strength. Isaiah 40;31 says, but those who wait on the Lord, shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” God will give you strength but you should wait. You should not take any negative decision, or utter any negative word regarding your current situation. Instead, you must keep praising the Lord. Then God will exalt you. Never speak hastily wrong words and spoil the good relationship with others. I say “Epatha” to those who fail to hear or speak. God will help them to hear well and speak too. You need to take your steps by faith in the Lord. Then God will give you strength.
Fourthly God will anoint you with His holy oil. Psalm 92:10 ‘But my horn You have exalted like a wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil.” God will not only give you the strength of the oxen but also pour fresh oil and anoint you. God will exalt your horn like that of the wild ox. You will begin to shine or be recognized by the people around you. Your name will become great and popular. You will receive honour and praise from others. Prophet Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed David in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of the Lord came upon David in power. When the oil of anointing, is poured upon you, then you shall receive an unknown strength and power. God will make all your parched areas in your life to be fertile and greenery. You will bring forth a 100-fold, even during dry and famine season of your life. May all the desires of your heart be fulfilled in this new year 2022. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord, we thank You for encouraging us through this message. Help us to live a life pleasing unto God. Help us to make a commitment that we would remain faithful to God. Teach us to obtain the grace of God, be a sharp instrument for God, Receive the strength of God, and also be anointed by the fresh oil of God. Dear Lord fulfil all the desires of our heart.
