All over the world, celebrations are going on! Not just because 2016 found its way but because we found our way to 2016! For me personally, I am celebrating 2016 because I already know what God has designed my year to be like. It’s been a long time since I posted on my blog but on this New Year, I have a message for us that I must share with us against all odds!
So, 31st December 2015 which probably was New Year Eve witnessed hours of prayers, intercessions and prophetic declarations that ushered us into 2016. First of all, I want to encourage you to hold on to that word that was spoken to you by your Pastor and Man of God, keep confessing it extraordinarily and never let situations make you put down your confessions. Let our confessions affect our nations and lives. That can only happen when you truly believe and know that your tongue can spit out so much power that God has already generated and deposited in you. King Solomon wrote in Proverbs 11:11
“A city becomes great when the righteous give it their blessing; but a city is brought to ruin by the words of the wicked”
This is amazing! You mustn’t let the wicked have a say… When you let them be in control, you have let them destroy the city! They might be talking but it will come to pass if you aren’t talking! As a believer who has been given the right to become a child of God, your voice is the voice of God; your declaration is God’s declaration! So when you speak, it nullifies the voice of the wicked and establishes that which was already agreed in heaven. No wonder Jesus said told us when He walked on earth in the form of man
“…what you prohibit on earth will be prohibited in heaven, and what you permit on earth will be permitted in heaven” Matthew 18:18
There is more to that verse when studied with other translations of the scripture but generally we discover amazingly that we have a voice no demon can shut, a voice terrorists cannot shut, a voice that can only yield unstoppable results. This is what Solomon meant when he asked that the righteous bless the city! If a righteous can cause a city to prosper then the righteous is more than prosperous! If the righteous can bless a city, then the righteous is more than blessed. We are a blessing to this world!
Just like your Pastor and Church have made declarations concerning 2016, hold on to it and never let go of what you have. To add flavor to what you have already called you year, I will lead us back to Proverbs Chapter 11, this time we will be looking at verse 10, we can see something there
“A city is happy when honest people have good fortune; there are joyful shouts when the wicked die”
Only one thing can lead to this joyful shout! The righteous realizes that it is not the wicked that holds their future; it is themselves who decides their future, a future that is already guaranteed by God! It is these discoveries that cause them to shout in joy and bless the name of God! Look at what Paul wrote to the Corinthians
“I always give thanks to my God for you because of the grace he has given you through Christ Jesus. For in union with Christ you have become rich in all things, including all speech and all knowledge. The message about Christ has become so firmly established in you that you have not failed to receive a single blessing, as you wait for our Lord Jesus Christ” 1 Corinthians 1:4-7
You see that! These and many more makes me shout whenever I read the scriptures! Paul’s Eureka is filled with thanksgiving because he discovered amazing things that we inherited in Christ. But Paul said we are also rich in “speech and knowledge”. Do you know why Paul gives thanks “always”? That is because he discovers more and more riches always! If we are rich in speech and knowledge then we can’t run short of confessing with our mouth and believing with our heart what God has done in 2016. You don’t need to confess it because you saw it with your physical eyes; you confess it because you will see it… I already saw it with my eyes of faith! Paul said “we call forth that which is not seen as though they were”. You don’t need to see it before you believe it… Jesus told Thomas “Blessed are those who believe without seeing”.
The more you boldly confess who you are in Christ, what your nation will be like, the more your faith is strengthened to hold fast to the true gospel that you have received! What I am telling you now is part of the good news!
On this note, I want to declare to you that in 2016, you’ll discover more of whom you are in Christ; you’ll discover several ways that you can ultimately cause a change that will terminate the actions of the wicked! This discovery will cause a great shout… it is called Eureka! You’ll be filled with joy as you realize the power you have got not just as a good person but as a believer of this gospel! I therefore add flavor to what your Pastor have already told you and also I therefore declare to us all that 2016 is OUR YEAR OF BLISSFUL EUREKA!
