I believe and know that this is your year of great abundance, you've got to enter into it. You enter into every promise of God through violent spiritual warfare.
God's awesome favor is coming on you this new year. 2007 is spectacular for you.
8 Let the whole world bless our God
and loudly sing his praises.
9 Our lives are in his hands,
and he keeps our feet from stumbling.
10 You have tested us, O God;
you have purified us like silver.
11 You captured us in your net
and laid the burden of slavery on our backs.
12 Then you put a leader over us.
We went through fire and flood,
but you brought us to a place of great abundance.
20Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]--
21To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).
The key words from these two scriptures are GREAT ABUNDANCE and SUPERABUNDANTLY!
Prophetic statements like these are weapons of warfare and not just good sounding words, that equip & enable a serious believer of the gospel of Jesus Christ, to enter, reap & enjoy the practical fulfilment this year!- 1Tim.1:18,19.
I therefore encourage you to engage these scriptures in your regular prayer time. Don't forget to add fasting from time to time, because God's Word is the SWORD of the spirit that can never return void - Halleluyah!
There was a period in my life I really thought that these scriptural promises proclaimed week after week by Pastors, Teachers, Prophets, and other category of people working in God's vineyard, were mere propaganda because it wasn't working in my life let alone on anyone I knew! Until I decided, when I understood that only the spiritually focused & voilent will ever see God's promises unfold tangibly. Matt.11:12.
I was terribly disappointed when I discovered too that having sought the kingdom of God & His righteousness - WHICH WE MUST DO - doesn't guarantee we receive the fulfilment of God's INFALLABLE WORD, why? because we have a thief, the devil, who steals God's blessings for us SO WE MAY THINK, COMPLAIN & CONCLUDE THAT GOD'S WORD IS A LIE! Jn.10:10
Now, I know better, I know that every Word of God is true WHEN WE use it as a weapon to beat the devil & his imps!
This is the year of Great Abundance for ONLY those who'll use those HOLY WORDS IN FAITH to bring it to pass. The onus rests on us. Jesus says it's unto us according to our faith - ON THESE WORDS!!!
Have a marvelous day in God's awesome presence.
Apostle Steve Adonai.
