It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garment; as the dew of Hermon, and as the dew That descended upon the mountains of Zion: for the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

  1. 2021  Plans
  • Now, if I were to ask to see your plan for the year 2021, would you have something to show me? Note that I said ‘show me’ and not ‘tell me’, because I believe that any serious Christian will live by Habakkuk 2:2which says:
  • “And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.”
  • If you would not have anything to show me, then you need to go to the drawing board and do a proper plan for the year 2021.
  • Having established the need for you to plan ahead of the new year, it is important that you commit those plans to the hands of God. Before you were formed in your mother’s womb, God had a plan and agenda for your life. It does not matter how meticulous your plan is, if it is not in line with His agenda for you, you may end up struggling to get your footing in the new year. Let Him know that all you care about is that His will is done and nothing else. Tell Him, just like our memory verse says, that you may have planned your way, but you need Him to direct your steps. God is not responsible for whatever is not committed to his hands; if you say you know exactly what you want to do in the new year and you don’t need His help, He will simply stand back and watch. But if you call on Him to direct your footsteps, He will take you to greater heights and help you far beyond your imaginations.

In Jesus Name, Amen
