I pray you all have a blessed new year. Every year, I set goals based on where I believe God is leading me. The goals for Revival Fire for Kids Ministry in 2010 are listed here. But many times, as the new year approaches, God also puts a vision, or a glimspe of what He intends to do or wants me to work at in my spirit. It could even be called a theme for the year.
Last year, God called me to act out of faith, not out of fear. I admit now I needed that admonition. I had begun to work out whether certain things I felt led to do were practical. Nothing is practical when it comes to jumping out of the boat and following Jesus. Practical is an acceptable way of saying I wanted to be cautious, to act out of my fear instead of my faith. It wasn’t easy to do. At first, I had to step out while being afraid. But now that 2009 is coming to an end, I can say it’s been worth every step of faith I’ve taken. God has broken down the walls of fear I built to protect me.
Other years, some things that have been spoken to me were a year of change, sacrificing Isaac, obediance, get out of the boat, and stand firm.
This year is different. This year I’ve heard something spoken to me that I believe will be a turning point in my life and ministry. He has deposited in my spirit the theme for 2010 – Open Doors. God is about to move in mighty ways, and I need to be ready to walk through the door He opens. I don’t know what doors those will be, but I will watch for them and run through when I see them open.
Revelation 3:8 ( NLT ) I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close. You have little strength, yet you obeyed my word and did not deny me.
God has a word for you this year as well, a path He wants you to take in 2010. I pray that God will lead you on that path and open the right doors for you. I am here to serve you and your children’s ministry wherever He leads. I also pray He breaths revival into you and the children you minister to in 2010. May you have a blessed new year.
