I feel like I’m in a crossroad nowadays. I have a feeling there will be great changes coming in the next few days or even months both in my personal ministry and personal life, and I believe these will all happen in the coming year -2017. Yes, I am feeling hopeful and excited about the coming new year but at the same time, I’m a bit scared of what might happen in the next 12 months. I’ve been praying to God for growth and maturity for a long time now and I know that God will answer my prayer. But knowing God, I know that His way of answering my prayer will not be easy. There will be a lot of growing pains and great joy at the same to make sure that I will not only grow in the process but also to let me experience His great love and amzing grace. Most importantly, He wants me to know Him more intimately and love Him more deeply.
I’ve been told to ask for God’s Word for guidance but I’ve been putting off my plan to spend quality time with God for one obvious reason: I’m afraid to hear God’s answer. I’m afraid because once He give me the answer, I know I have to obey it. Will you please pray for me? Please pray for God to grant me the courage to lay down whatever plans, fears and worries I have for 2017. Please also pray that God will enable me to lay down the pride, stubborness, selfishness and self-centeredness I still have in my heart so that God can work powerfully through my life.
Thank you and may you have a blessed year ahead.
