The Lord has been good to us all this year 2021. We have celebrated the birthday of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ again. Glory Hallelujah!
Now is time to reflect on the what was and is to come as we are in a journey to the New Year. The year of Harvest for us.
What you have sown and continue to sow. Just like a farmer.
Let us note this message of today, very important. Please pay attention:
Be aware as a child of God:
Not everything is acceptable.
Not everything is right or good and bad.
If you don’t know you don’t know.
What you don’t know may end up hurting you.
What you know may end up saving you.
Ignorant is know excuse.
What you don’t understand ask or research on it.
No question is dumb or bad, there is always an answer to every question asked.
If you don’t ask you get it.
Jesus said in John 16:24, “Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.”John 16:24 NKJV
If you ask questions and find the answer you good and you’re happy.
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”James 1:5 NKJV
There no harm is asking questions. From people and from God by the Holy Spirit.
There is nothing wrong in seeking help, it is therapeutic we you seek help. It brings a relief.
He who asked for help received help.
Don’t keep into a room where there no ventilation, stay in a room where you can breathe some air.
There is always someone out there ready to listen to you. A God sent who has the mind of God in Christ Jesus. Amen.
Whatever is happening and we experience is not new, thousands of people have weathered through that storm and have come out of it. Why? Because, they were temporary not permanent, just that it was part of their testimony.
The word of the preacher to the sons of David in the book of Ecclesiastic 1: 9-10
“That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which it may be said, “See, this is new”? It has already been in ancient times before us.” Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 NKJV
Let us Stop beating down on yourself, take life easy. Let’s learn from our past mistakes and correct them.
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” That witticism—I’ll call it “Einstein Insanity”—Albert Einstein. .
We cannot be doing the same thing over the same way all the time and expecting a better result. No more.
Seek help and counsel when necessary. Finding a better way and give room for mistakes and correct them.
Stay teachable as we move in the might of God to new year 2022. Jesus was interpreting the parable or the sower and after which he made this statement in Mark 4:25(AMP)
“For whoever has [a teachable heart], to him more [understanding] will be given; and whoever does not have [a yearning for truth], even what he has will be taken away from him.”” Mark 4:25 AMP
Quest for truth and the knowledge of it.
The word of God is the word of truth and life.
There are solutions to all things we are looking for in the word of God. The word of God throw’s (sheared) light to all we are seeking or asking for.
We all celebrate the birth of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ on Christmas yesterday, Correct? Yes.
Now, We also must remember and know that one of the purpose or his miraculous conception and birth is to bring to light what had been hidden from mankind from ages past. To clear the air all confusing and doubt we are having.
That’s why he said, in John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth and the life “
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6 NKJV
2022, be in tune with the one who know the way to everything about life and Godliness.
Jesus said in John 15:1““ I am the true Vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.” John 15:1 AMP
2022 is our year of HARVEST we have to abide in the true vine as a branch in Him for a great harvest.
“Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that continues to bear fruit, He [repeatedly] prunes, so that it will bear more fruit [even richer and finer fruit].” John 15:2 AMP
2022, the Lord wants us to bear more fruit for him. This can only be possible when we abide in him.
We as a people are limited and insufficient in all thing without abiding in Christ the Son of God.
But in Him we are complete in all things.
Jesus said, ““I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 NKJV
When we abide in him, he will by the Holy Spirit teach us all things we need to know and prosper and bear more fruit that will abide forever.
He is the word that will not fail us. As he said, he will not fail us nor forsake us.
Moses said to Joshua as he was handing over to him to lead the people to the promise land, saying, “And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”” Deuteronomy 31:8 NKJV
Jesus said to his Disciples in Matthew 28:20b
“and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.” Matthew 28:20 NKJV
- Let the word of the Lord be our guide in the new year ahead of us.
- Thing will fall in pleasant places for us as we enter into the new year.
- He will not fail nor forsake us
- Be prepared to experience rest from toiling all night, struggling with no results.
- The Lord will prove Himself and reveal his Majesty on our behalf.(say a loud Amen)
- Be determined in your heart to follow the Lord Jesus Christ and serve him in the Spirit and truth.
- Give him the best services according the the ability that is you.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;”Philippians 4:6 NKJV
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.” I Thessalonians 5:16-22 NKJV
As Paul the Apostle said in 2 Timothy 3:14-17 (In 2022, we must)
“But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, “and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” II Timothy 3:14-15
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” II Timothy 3:16-17 NKJV
Stay closer to the Bible, the word of God.
“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:8-9 NKJV2022 is a better year for us, the hand of God is widely open to carry us in, in his Majesty and power Amen.
Therefore let the church rejoice and be glad. Amen and Amen
