ABOVE ONLY DEVOTIONAL JANUARY 6 2018 WHAT DO YOU SEE ABOUT THIS GREAT YEAR?
Date: Saturday, JANUARY 6
Topic: What Do You See About This Great Year?
Habakuk 2:1-3 (New Living Translation)
I will climb up to my watchtower and stand at my guardpost. There I will wait to see what the Lord says and how he will answer my complaint. Then the Lord said to me, “Write my answer plainly on tablets, so that a runner can carry the correct message to others. This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.
What you envision will determine your faith, your words and your actions this year. The ‘seeing’ that we are referring to here is a seeing with the eyes of your heart. Your vision will impact your entire mindset, your attitude and how the year will unfold for you. The first and most important thing you need to ‘see’ is what God is saying to you. What is God revealing to you about this year? Yes, as a ministry, God has revealed to us that this year, He has empowered us to succeed; but I want you to ask God for a personal revelation of this theme. Ask God to make it real and clear to you and then personalize it. If you are willing to inquire, God is willing to open your eyes to see beyond that which you know and understand, Jer.33:3.
The Holy Spirit wants to show you things to come, even in this year, John 16:13. Eyes have not seen, ears have not heard and minds have not imagined that which God has prepared for you in 2018. Child of God, God wants to reveal them to you by His Spirit. You have the ability to know the deep things in the mind of God because you have His Spirit in you, 1Cor.2:9-12. Genesis 13:14&15 reveals to us that after Lot left Abraham, God told Abraham to lift up his eyes and look North, South, East and West because God was going to give Him as far as his eyes could see. As you remain intimate with God, He will continue to open your eyes and stir up your heart to know the things that are on His heart so that you can align yourself with Him.
PRAYER FOCUS: Ask God to speak to you right now and to open your eyes so that He can reveal great things to you about this year.
