Don’t live by the luck of the draw in 2018

Isaiah 46:9-10

For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like Me,
Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things that are not yet done,
Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand,
And I will do all My pleasure,’

God is not waiting to see how our lives will turn out. He has spoken the end from the beginning concerning you and me: our destiny is to manifest and enjoy the glory of God more and more every day!

Not only that but His counsel will stand. He does everything after the counsel of His own will and once He has said it He doesn’t change His mind; He will perform His Word in our lives.

When He said of the created order “it was good” repeatedly in the first book of Genesis, the reason was that what He saw lined up with what He had said. He left nothing to chance; He spoke it first and then rejoiced when it came to pass.

We shouldn’t be waiting to see how 2018 turns out, we should be adopting the same method of operation, speaking out the will of God for us, and watching it be realized throughout the upcoming months.

In the light of the Word for this year- that multifaceted grace is available for us to break through in every situation, and especially in those aspects of our lives where longstanding issues have kept us down, we can expect Him to do some amazing things; so, start out right now, speaking the end from the beginning.

What is it that you want to be and do this year? Instead of thinking wistfully about how far off you are from realizing those things, speak them out boldly. Take hold of your year and determine what it is going to be like right now as you speak out the will of God for your life:

I am sharp and focused, I am seeing increase on every side. I walk in grace for every relationship and I enjoy harmony, peace and fulfillment in my relational sphere. My house is paid off, my bank account is overflowing and I am able to sow a hundred times more than I did last year. I am sought after, promoted and respected, and my influence is increasing in scope and intensity for the Kingdom of God.


Thank you, Father for your perfect will for my life. Right now, I play my part by speaking out the things that you have quickened to me for this year.

I access your grace to bring every one of these things to pass and I believe that every time I speak out the end from the beginning I am being transformed by your Holy Spirit’s power to be conformed into the image of your Word. Thank you, Lord!
