As we come to the close of another year, my prayer for you is that you will not leave this year the same way you came in. I truly believe our future will look different as we leave the things of the past behind, such as old mindsets, grudges, pride, and behaviors that are not pleasing to God.
The Israelites roamed around in the wilderness for forty years on what was supposed to be an eleven-day journey. Therefore, their thinking, complaining, and actions held them captive so that they roamed around in a continuous circle. Never able to move forward.
What we choose to carry into the next year can hold us captive or set us free. God wants to do something new in 2024. And as we ask Him to help us change our thoughts, life, actions, and words, He will draw us closer to Him.
For many, the hopes and dreams within your heart have been simmering for years. But God wants to remove what has held you captive. So that what has been hidden within your heart will overflow. People will drink from your overflowing cup of God’s love everywhere you go because your heart has been positioned in the place with Him.
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 43:19
