This is the first month of the new year 2013, the Lord is doing great things in my life and I believe He is in yours too. Personally, Its a new season of new beginnings, moving a few steps forward not going back to the past and stepping up, for He is taking us to a new level. “Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert Isaiah 43:18-19 NKJV.
As you enter into the new, embrace all that the Lord has in store for you with a heart of gratefulness, faithfulness and peacefulness. There is so much He wants to do in your life, only if you permit Him by total submission to His ways, will and purpose. That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” 10 But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets 1 Corinthians 2:9=10 NLT . Are you ready to walk with Him on the journey ahead? Will you trust Him when He speaks to you? Is your heart opened to receive all that He has in store for you?
Its a new season, season of revival, rejuvenation, regrowth, blossom, fruitfulness and freshness. This reminds me of spring season , which takes place right after winter. My beloved spoke, and said to me: “Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. 11 For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. 12 The flowers appear on the earth; The time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. 13 The fig tree puts forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grapes give a good smell. Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away! Song of Solomon 2:10-13 NKJV.
This is a reflection of what I perceive of the new season
Its a new season
Season of joy, Season of peace
Season of increase, Season of abundance
Season of new levels, Season of fresh anointing
The old is gone, the new is here
The past is over, its a new beginning
Time to move forward, keep pressing on
Time to step up, keep standing
Winter has gone, Spring is here
Come out and see the beauty of the day
The green trees and fresh ripe fruits
Reap the harvest of the new season
The time of singing and dancing is here
Sing let your voice be heard
Dance so the whole world would know
Come away with Me My beloved
The time is here, the time is now to do all that the Lord has called us to do, for many are called but few are chosen. The Lord has given you the boldness and strength to come out of your shell, come out of your hiding place and embrace the new season. No more hiding because winter is over and spring is here. The Lord is willing and ready to show you how and He wants you to come forward, in your vulnerability and stand out in the crowd. Though it might not be easy, let your sole confidence and dependence be in Him.
I pray that you will embrace the new in your life, forget the old and step into this new season of joy, peace and faithfulness in His love for you. I pray that you will step out of your comfort zone and walk with the Lord on the journey ahead as He works it out. I pray that He will strengthen you, equip and release you into all that He has called you to do. In Jesus Name amen.
