A Word From The Lord

Updated: Feb 18, 2021

On New Year's Eve, the Pastor of my church asked those of us who attended the New Years service to pray and ask God for a word or vision for the year 2020! Here's mine:

After praying to hear from God, I was suddenly reminded of a song by Vickie Winans. The song is called, Oh What Love. But I realized after I listened to it that the message that I needed to hear came from a different song by the same artist. Its called We Need A Word From The Lord.

At the end of the song, she makes reference to a scripture in Haggai chapter 2 verse 9.

I went to read the chapter in its entirety, and As I read I got a download from God.

Here's what I wrote in the notes of my phone:

"In 2018, I left the familiar and went abroad to an unknown place. My faith and my spirit were tried and shaken. I dwelled in the darkness, and the face of God seemed to be far from me.

In 2019, I made a promise to look past the darkness taht clouded my vision and seek God more and more. I found him who first loved me and continously sought me out. It was the year of recovery! I reestablished my stregnth and faith in God.

In 2020, I will be better than I was. Better than ever! In spite of what I looked like last year or the year before, the greatest version of me lies ahead. I will walk in faith and fear nothing. And the peace of God will sustain me."

I wrote this note on January 2nd. Today is January 15th and I've already endured a blow. On Monday, (the 13th) I found out that my dog had died. This alone is enough. But what's a bit more painful is that this happened six days before I am to return home. I am so close. But not close enough to play with him one last time. I found myself angry and teary-eyed that whole day. But I am at peace now. The peace of God is sustaining me. Truly.

As much as I am greatful to have this word to lean on for the year. I am also a bit nervous. I know that if this is God's word for me, the enemy will try to come and convince me that its not true; to believe his lies. In this case, I must put on the whole armor of God and stand firm in knowing that my God cannot tell a lie.

I urge you to take a moment and ask God what his word is for you this year! If you want to share it, contact me the best way you know how.

Happy New Year!
