Can you believe 2022 is coming to an end? I want to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas! May the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior bring joy and laughter as you gather with friends and family in this great time of rejoicing in our King!
Let’s begin this letter by stirring our hearts with the words found in Isaiah 9:6-7 (MSG), which reads, “For a child has been born – for us! The gift of a son – for us! He’ll take over the running of the world. His names will be Amazing Counselor, Strong God, Eternal Father, and Prince of Wholeness. His ruling authority will grow, and there’ll be no limits to the wholeness He Brings. He’ll rule from the historic David throne over that promised kingdom on a firm footing and keep it going with fair dealing and right living, beginning now and lasting always.” I want these words to penetrate and resonate with you as you pass from this year into the next. Counselor, Strengthener, Father, and eternal Wholeness is yours in Christ, not tomorrow or after the end of the world, but now. It is yours.
With this, I want to declare some things over your life that Jesus ushered in with His arrival of heavenly authority.
That which was lost will be FOUND! Luke 19:10 (NKJV) says, “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Jesus said that there will be much rejoicing over the lost item, property, and souls being found. To the lost child, relationship, or opportunity may there be restored time, expenses, and peace that was lost in this period. The stronghold of the enemy is broken, and the eyes of the heart that is darkened will be flooded with light so that all is recovered.
I declare double for your trouble! Where the devil has stolen, he must repay seven-fold.
Job 42:10 says, “And the Lord restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed, the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.” What the devil has meant for evil, God is turning for your good. You will not end this year as you started.
Isaiah 61:7 reads, “Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore, in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be theirs.”
Remember that God earnestly cares for you (1 Peter 5:7) and is unwilling to allow you to fall or fail. He is actively working on your behalf and for your success as you seek and trust in Him.
That which was stunted will FLOURISH! John 10:10 (TPT) says, “But I have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expect – life in its fullness until you overflow!”
You will not only experience joy, strength, and blessing but will boldly display their abundance in every area of your life. I declare momentum over you and the breaking free from all limits and restrictions. You will be strengthened and given might as you reach new heights of purpose.
That which was denied will flow with FAVOR! John 1:16 reads, “And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace.” You are stepping into a time of surplus and abundance. God’s favor surrounds you like a shield (Psalms 5:12) and will cause you to be treated like royalty, with great kindness and preferential treatment. I declare kingdom provision in every area of your life.
Genesis 39:4 (NKJV) “So Joseph found favor in his (Potiphar’s) sight and served him. Then he made him (Joseph) overseer of his house, and all that he had he put under his authority.” Never forget the authority we have through Christ Jesus. We don’t negotiate with the enemy; we command! It’s time for us to rise to the level we have been given and begin to walk in the favor of our Father and take ground for His kingdom.
Daniel 1:9 (NKJV) says, “Now God had brought Daniel into favor and goodwill of the chief eunuchs.” Remember that God does not require flesh to accomplish the supernatural or miraculous, but He does partner with those that will believe, trust and obey Him. This is where you will see breakthroughs.
You are no longer beat, broke, or sorry, but instead have been raised as an heir of promise and given destiny. You will fulfill your purpose and walk in the fullness of God’s goodness and mercy that endlessly pursues you.
No matter the attack or persecution, you will be elevated from the pit to the palace. From the lion’s den to a position of power where what you say and do will hold weight, changing the course of the land, the area of your influence. Neither the lies of Potiphar’s wife nor the deception of the king’s counsel could stop the favor that God had placed on Joseph and Daniel. Neither can the lies of the devil stop you from fulfilling the days that God has fashioned for you, for how great are the sum of them! (Psalms 139:17)
