For me, this is The Year of the Imperative.
I am not alone in believing this is a critical year in our walk with the LORD. Let’s be prepared for the year of fulfilment: http://fafw.org/view-by-sermons/sermon/136-year-of-fulfillment
I am urging myself and every reader to move forward in our purposefulness. I am choosing to have minimal projects and seeking to avoid distraction.
I am praying, seeking God’s guidance on what’s important and significant to His plans and purposes, sticking to God things rather than Good things. I’m recognising that there is not “to do” list that is above the importance of God’s “to do” list… and there isn’t time to do both.
I’m asking for God’s peace, calm, serenity, and through that, His productivity, which comes from a rested and focused mind.
This is the Year of the Imperative. So through this prayer, I’m urging us all:
In everything we do, let’s be intentional.
In every encounter,
In every action,
In every activity,
Let 2017 be the year we accomplish that which God has placed in us to do.
Focused on the prise: the high calling of God,
We do All Things through Christ who Gives us Strength.
Determined to fulfil the call and purpose for our lives,
We march on in Love, Compassion, Joy and Peace.
How? Through surrender: we yield to His release, His timing, His voice.
May God bless us as we walk together. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
