Every year, I have one word that I focus on throughout the year. I usually pray about it and then wait for God to reveal it to me. Last night, as I was journaling God, revealed my word to me. My word for 2019 is: believe.
In order for me to able to do God’s work, then I have to wholeheartedly believe in the purpose of it and God’s ability to bring it to pass. I also have to believe in my ability to do His work. I can’t follow the Lord while I am holding hands with the devil. I have to turn loose of my doubts so I walk after the ways of my Lord.
God doesn’t want us to walk around with our head dropped feeling defeated all the time. He wants us to walk in faith, knowing with certainty that He can do the things we cannot do. The world constantly puts limits on our God, but with God, there are no limits. The reason that we don’t see great things happening in our lives is that we fail to ask Him to use us according to His will.
God can take something small and bless it greatly. He can take one obedient and willing person and use him or her to make a great difference in the world. If we want to be someone who can help other people and lead them to God, then we have to believe that He can use us.
When we kneel down to pray, we have to believe that God has the ability to answer our prayers in the best possible way. Before we could get saved, we had to believe that God had the power to save us.
Mark 9:23 King James Version (KJV)
23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
Matthew 19:26 (KJV)
26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
We also need to remember that it is God who puts the desires in our hearts. If He puts a desire in our heart, then He has a plan to bring it to pass. He will lead us and guide us every step of the way. So as the new year comes, I am going to trust God to help me with my beliefs. I want to get rid of all the lies of my enemy and replace them with God’s truth.
