The year 2016 brought many challenges in my walk with Christ. And yet I overcame every obstacle that the enemy put in front of me. I wasn’t able to overcome them by myself of course but only through Jesus. The outlook that I have before I go into prayer is this; He will meet every need that I have and restore the areas that need to be restored in my life. Your outlook determines the outcome. What are you expecting God to do in 2017?
In 2 Timothy 1:12 Paul writes “That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet this is no cause for shame, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day.
Paul is saying that yet I have been through many storms, I know what to expect! Because he knows who God is. Knowing who you are in Christ and the power that you have over the enemy is the most important thing to know and understand and not be convinced otherwise.
God is faithful, God never changes, He holds your future in His hands. Are you convinced that He is able to guard you?
In 2016 I learned that:
- I can’t do everything by myself
- I need help!
- To worry less, casting every care to Jesus
- Expect a greater outcome
What have you learned in 2016? Are you expecting greater things in 2017?
