God often speaks to me around the time of my birthday and in the New Year. He whispers to me about His thoughts and plans and often gives me a theme or a focus for the year.
Now, I actively seek His voice at those times and He has been so gracious and faithful again to me this year.
God gave me a word for the year and it was selective. It means a great deal to me I have received a confirmation about the word from someone who knows me well.
Perhaps the Lord has given you a word for the year – a theme or a concept or an idea on which to draw your energy from as the year progresses. A word to help you, to inform your actions and to keep your heart and your eyes firmly fixed on Him.
Or maybe you don’t have a word from the Lord yet. Well, ask Him. Seek Him in prayer for the word that He has for you.
In Jeremiah 33:3, we have a promise from God that we will receive – ask Him and see what the Lord will do.
Call unto Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and hidden things that you do not know.
