This is the month where most individuals reflect on their achievements for the year. If the journey has been bad, they make their conclusion that the year has not been good for them.
Believers should not think like that! God specializes in showing up at the end. Concerning Joshua and his people; God told them to match round the wall of Jericho for seven days; and on the seventh day, they should match seven times, while the other days should be once. He further told them to make a loud shout after they hear the trumpet from their priests – which they should hear after the seventh match on the seventh day.
It would interest you to know that while they did all the matching, even till the seventh time on the seventh day, there was not a single scratch on the wall. And that also means that there was no sign that God’s word would come to pass in their lives. But after they made the shout, God came down and collapsed the wall.
It may look like nothing has happened for you, but God is never late. God promised Abraham a son while he was 70 years of age, and He ensured that He fulfilled His promise, the opposing natural laws notwithstanding. The bible says “in a twinkle of an eye, my change shall come”. Joseph’s ordeal started while he was 17 years of age, but God’s word still came to pass when he was 30 years old, and it happened in less than 24 hours. Do not conclude your testimony until God’s word comes to pass in your life.
The only thing that would make you lose your blessings for the year is lack of confidence in God. Do not let the enemy go away with their mockery; rather, continue to trust God for the manifestation of what you believe.
Double up on your investments and sacrifices. This is not a time to withhold or draw back in your commitments. Send your business proposals to more companies, talk to more people about what you do. Just because it’s December doesn’t mean you should go and rest and start over next year. Don’t rest when God has not rested your case.
A lady recently shared a concern with me, how that her parents didn’t want her to marry the man that God approved for her, and it’s been dragging for years now. She and the man are convinced and ready, she even told me that if her parents agrees, that they can actually get married in a week. She was tired of the struggle and wasn’t sure if she should continue pushing. In my mind, I was going to pray for a six months intervention, but all of a sudden, I saw 4 weeks projected in my spirit. I quickly told her what I saw and that she should prepare to hear good news within four weeks. This was Mid-November. She called me a week after and told me that her parents had finally agreed and that the wedding would happen Mid-December. As we speak, the invitation card has been circulated.
Believe me, it’s only in your eyes that the year has ended, in God’s eyes, work is still in progress. That’s right! Work is in progress, and there’s no holiday in the realm of the spirit. Keep supplying your faith, even if it’s on Christmas day. God must perfect that which He spoke concerning you this year. Perhaps you haven’t heard that someone received a job offer on Christmas day; a day that was supposed to be a general holiday, some group of people were in the office just to ensure that God’s work doesn’t stop.
When God is working, the people that needs to execute specific tasks can’t go on holiday. He will move them to work; that’s how that brother got his job on Christmas day. If God has promised to promote you this year, then He will. And just because your boss is still proving obstinate doesn’t mean you won’t get your promotion. When it is time, God will either turn his heart or replace him. Simple!
Remember Prophet Elisha, “By this time tomorrow, there’d be plenty of food everywhere in the land…”. It didn’t look like there’d even be a grain of rice a day before, yet there was food everywhere the next day. Don’t bother about the signs, focus on the Word. You may not see wind nor rain, yet your valley will be filled with water; and you, your cattle and your other animals will drink. Just believe God!
LET ME PRAY FOR YOU…
You will not lose your confidence in God this month! This month, your oppositions will vomit every word they have spoken against you! In a twinkle of an eye my God will change your story, and give you a new testimony! You will not end this year in pity! Everyone who has pitied you will come back to celebrate with you this month! This month, God will restore double of whatever you may have lost to the devil! No more shame and reproach for you! So shall it be! In Jesus precious name!
God bless you, I love you, and happy new month!
