All around us we can sense, smell, feel and even touch the emergence and resurgence of the highly festive Christmas and New Year celebrations! May I remind you that we’re not celebrating the date 25th December, neither are we celebrating the immorality and irresponsibility that normally accompany this season; but we’re celebrating the greatest gift in the whole wide world, Jesus Christ, the righteous King of kings and Lord of lords! The air is supercharged and supersaturated with anticipated thrill, euphoria, and divine love!
It's like being present on the spot the three wise men and the Shepherds got the glorious news of the birth of our savior Jesus Christ, this is an amazing moment indeed! Matt.2:2, 10-12; Lk.2:8-20. We have every cause to give thanks and praise to God continually for His mercies and grace on us to witness another of these auspicious, highly memorable, and edifying occasions. Jesus Christ is the reason for this season!
But perhaps your journey through these past years and particularly this year 2012, have not been positively eventful and fruitful. Consequently you're mustering your final and reserved energy, courage and hope just to waddle to the end, so you can expect to hear yet another prophetic declaration about yet another year, the upcoming 2013! Hold it right there, you've missed something significant. This is the end of the year, it's bound to be better than the beginning and previous years, it can't be otherwise! Eccl.7:8.
Better is the end of a thing than its beginning, and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
Though beginning was small and inconsequential, this latter end should greatly increase! Job 8:7. These are God's infallible Words, not mine. God says you've been endowed with the capacity to do greater works than Jesus Christ did, at this time! Jn.14:12. The creator of heaven and earth, the self existing God, the Almighty Himself is saying, ideally, you're immune to stagnation, retrogression, and relegation no matter what. That onward and forward, waxing stronger and stronger in every capacity and circumstance is your birthright and inheritance! Job 17:9. Now, I can sense your spirit man rising up with divine fury to lay hold on these great blessings! Go ahead; it's our inheritance, glory to God!
So before you permit anymore negatively hideous, traditional, and conventional and Satan inspired thoughts sneak through the window of your mind and crawl surreptitiously into the citadel of your delicate heart, know this. God is never too late; continue sending up your powerful requests of scripture-based prayers regularly and confidently. 1Jn.5:14:15. As you keep calling, the tide is turning. Last year is history, next year is a mystery wrapped up in your definite victory. Today is your opportunity, grab it! Delay is never denial.
All you could have accomplished in the previous years and eleven months, God is able to do for you in a day! What's your access to that? Jesus said, "Let it be unto you according to your faith" - Now, that's extremely powerful. The ball is now in your court, not God's! Can't you see our faith in God's Word is powerful enough to move God to bless us? This is simply incredible! Jesus is saying, better not try to reason, rationalize or figure this out, just believe it and God will do it, period! Merry Christmas!
Have a glorious Christmas celebration in God's awesome presence.
Apostle Steve Adonai.
