Happy New Year!
Thank you for rolling with me in 2017. Today marks the beginning of another New Year and an opportunity for a fresh start.
My prayer for us in 2018 is that we will draw closer to Jesus and experience deeper intimacy with Him.
I pray that we will receive the perfect knowledge of God’s pleasure over our lives, making us reservoirs of every kind of wisdom and spiritual understanding.
I pray that we will walk in the ways of true righteousness, pleasing God in every good thing we do.
I pray that we will become fruit-bearing branches, yielding to God’s life, and maturing in the rich experience of knowing God in his fullness!
I pray that we will be energized with all of God’s explosive power from the realm of his magnificent glory, and be filled with great hope.
I pray that our hearts can soar with joyful gratitude when we think of how God made us worthy to receive the glorious inheritance freely given to us by living in the light. (Colossians 1:9-12, TPT)
May we look to Jesus as our guide and cling to Him above all else. May Jesus be our Hope in 2018.
I am excited to see how the Lord will lead us this year. My word for 2018 is TRUST. I look forward to all the ways the Lord will take me deeper into trusting him more in 2018. This mug with its inscription, “It is well with my soul”, is a gift from my daughter that is helping me start the year on a good note.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for the New Year! Thank you for loving us. Lead us in 2018 and make your way straight before us. Thank you in advance for guiding and protecting us from any battles we may face in 2018. In Jesus Name, Amen.
