2016 is a year of great glory, particularly in the area of personal revival. This is important because many continue to look for revival outside of themselves without remembering Romans 8:18, “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in US,” and Eph. 3:20, “Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within US,” (emphasis mine).
As a life coach, I am very aware of natural, very practical ways in which to bring about personal transformation—but I want to encourage us that God makes no apology for enlisting supernatural help and even the spectacular in order to bring about personal transformation. Jacob was left alone and wrestled with an angel who pulled his hip socket out of joint to manifest a character and a name change that would label his posterity.
If you’ve felt that you’re banging your head against a brick wall on behalf of yourself or someone else, discouraged at how long things are taking–remember Hagar’s revelation about God in Genesis 16:13 (Hebrew “El roi” God never sleeps, He sees, He is aware). As we continue to abide in Him, help is on the way! He will get the job done without a minute to waste, and not a minute too soon.
I repeat—great change will occur this year, particularly in the area of personal revival. Stop looking far outside yourself for someone else to bring it. God has heard the cry of your heart, “Lord, show me Your glory.” A twist for some, however, is that God also wants to “Show you the money” in order to entrust TRUE riches to your care, Luke 16:11-12. But no get rich quick schemes and no incessant hype, but instead, God wants us to have our financial houses in order this year so that He can overlay us with gold, 2 Chron. 4:19-22. There’ll be greater manifestations of His glory in our personal lives as we continue to walk and abide in Him.
So … greater glory of God, greater glory of God, greater glory of God because people have been discouraged about ISIS or that the government will have the last say, but I hear His still, small voice saying, “I have the last say, and the 1st say, and the middle say, and whatever I say … goes.” His grace is sufficient, and as we align ourselves with Him, we won’t miss out on what He’s doing and saying both through His written and His spoken Word. Line up. Get in line. Stay in line. You’re going to get a blast, and it’s going to BE a blast as we’re partnered in line with Him. Yes. We’ve heard it, and it’s true … the best is yet to come.
