“Surely there is a future [and a reward],
And your hope and expectation will not be cut off.” Proverbs 23:18 AMP
Well, my friends, 2016 is coming to a close and 2017 is fast approaching as an athlete gearing up to run past his final competitor on to victory.
So much has happened both globally and in our individual lives over the last 365 days. Now, a new year is upon us. For some, there is great expectation, and for others, there is great anxiety. Although no one can really know all that the future may bring, we can know for sure that God is with us and that we can rely on Him. He is faithful to His word.
God’s word says that His blessings shall come upon us and overtake us as we walk in obedience to Him. As you cross over into 2017 know that you are crossing over into the season of abundance that God has promised His people – you shall have life and ‘have it more abundantly’! (John 10:10)
I encourage you, as we step into a brand new year, to approach it with optimism, gratitude and expectation. The Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth is with you and He has prepared you to walk victoriously through this season of your life. You have a beautiful future. God’s plans for you are good! I declare a victorious and prosperous 2017 over your life!
