It’s a new year! Full of hope and possibilities! Gym memberships are up. The sale of healthy foods rise during this time. We have resolved, this year will be better. This year I will lose the weight, save money, keep my house clean, write the next great American novel or compose the next great symphony.
Let me share with you two spiritual principles to help you reach your goals:
1. Speak it into existence. “Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.” (Genesis 1:3 NKJV) God resolved at a moment in time to create a universe. Then He spoke it into existence. We were created in His image. The creative forces that exist within God, were given to us as well. So everyday declare your success. When you are tempted, declare your goal. When you fall, declare it louder. Use your words to create your realities.
2. Take authority over and cast down any obstacle that comes your way. There will be resistance when you step forward to accomplish your goals. Remember God’s original mandate over us: “God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.””(Genesis 1:28 NIV) You have authority over every obstacle that comes your way. You have been blessed for such a time as this. You have been ordained by God for fruitfulness.
2019 is full of possibilities! Go and lose the weight, write the book, save the money. Speak your future into existence and refuse to partner with any thought, any circumstance that is contrary to your goal. Go and accomplish much, knowing all Heaven has your back. 2019 is the year of MORE! Go get your MORE!
