This is a year of advancing, not retreating, not standing still. It is time to take territory off the enemy, or whoever has robbed us, and hold it, then advance further. No longer can we say: “that’s just the way I am, or the way they are, it/they can never change, they will always be the same”. No no, where courage or boldness is needed to confront a situation, a person or enemy stronghold, God will give all that’s needed.
To advance our faith walks and to advance the kingdom, decisive deliberate action is what I believe the Lord is saying for this year. In turn, change (even ‘impossible’ change) will take place in the unseen spiritual realm, and even before your very eyes.
The strongholds are falling; they are being removed, torn down, in order for Gods kingdom to advance into places, people and areas that have never been touched before. Miracles will bring open heavens of renewal where spiritual dryness is, and where ‘religion’ rules.
In all this, don’t be any longer held down or held back by any weakness, opposition, ‘apparent defeat’, persecution or lack. For the resources of heaven are at your disposal. Be encouraged, be strong, stand firm, don’t look back or be led back to the past, that’s retreat. But run the race in His strength and power. And wherever you live, look to see the power of the Spirit at work in awesome ways this year.
