Those who are in Christ Jesus are more than conquerors because Jesus who is the head of our lives had fought the battle and won for us. We have nothing to fear in this new year. The message to all of us is that we should just trust Him. He says it in Proverbs 3:5-6 as follows, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path”.  The LORD does not want us to use our head knowledge this year. We have used it for long and it has not benefited us. We have had many worries in the past because we were trying to help ourselves to achieve some things. This year we do not have to lean on our own understanding, but rather allow God to lead the way for us. The Bible says the Word of God is a Lamp onto our feet, and a Light unto our path. My prayer for all of us this year is that the LORD will open our eyes of understanding to know what to do that will make us to be pleasing unto Him.  Because if our ways are pleasing unto Him, He will make us and our enemies to dwell together in peace.  That is how we can really overcome when we do not have to worry about any adversary because the LORD has taken care of them for us. All we need to endeavor to know is the Love that he has for us and the hope of His calling and the riches of His glory of His inheritance. He wants us to take our calling seriously, and that He placed us in the position we are in for a purpose. So we should do everything for Him. As a wife, we should do our duty diligently as the Scripture advises us to do, be submissive to our husbands as unto the LORD.  Obeying God will make us to be overcomers. That means we are not grudgingly obeying our husbands, but we are doing it lovingly and cheerfully. Husbands also should love their wives unconditionally as Christ loved the Church and gave Himself for it.  Children also should please God by honoring their parents. Even servants also should obey their masters. We are all servants of the LORD, so we should see ourselves as doing our  jobs for the Lord.  Are you a teacher, nurse, doctor, engineer, handyman, plumber, construction worker, or any vocation we find ourselves, we are supposed to do everything to the pleasing of the LORD.  We can only overcome all the devises of the devil when we do not allow the accuser of the brethren to point accusing fingers at us.

Therefore brethren let the Word of God be our Mirror, our Lamp and Light that will help us in our journey of 2019. We have the assurance if we are able to focus on Him, and Trust Him completely, that it shall be well with us.  Let us be like Joseph in Potiphar’s house that became an overseer of all the man had because he was faithful to the master., and when he was serving in the prison, he was diligent to the core, that he again became the head in charge of the prisoners.  Let us be like Daniel who did his work excellently well that they could not find any fault with him as he rose through the ranks to the highest position in Babylon.  There is reward waiting for us when we do our work faithfully pleasing the LORD.  When we do what pleases the LORD, then we are able to enjoy all the blessings that He has promised us. Remember we already overcame the devil by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus), so we should just continue to walk in His footsteps so that the blood of Jesus will continue to be our covering. I pray that year 2019  will be a year of bountiful blessings that will enhance our walk with the LORD in Jesus Name. Amen. Remain blessed.
