My Word for 2018

Every year, I pray to receive a word for the next year. This year, I couldn’t quite figure it out. I knew it would be a year of new beginnings, a year of expanding my territory and doing new things.

It didn’t take much figuring for all of this. Revival Fire for Kids is moving to Georgetown, Tennessee. My husband and I bought 23.6 acres there, and our house is almost finished. The possibilities for being in the middle of the Eastern US, at the buckle of the Bible Belt, and having so much room to do ministry, (ie: kid’s ministry camps, training, retreats, etc). are endless, but that’s not all of it.

I also knew it would be a year where God fills me with abundant joy like I’ve never known. To top it off, I believe the last Great Awakening is coming to our land and will start with children. God is about to pour out His Spirit in unprecedented ways.

That’s when I knew I had it – the word for 2018. My church leadership had decided on the word, unprecedented. When they first came up with that word, I had to mull it over a bit. Now I know, UNPRECEDENTED is not just a word for my church. It is my Word from God for 2018.

What I am expecting from God this year in my ministry, family, and nation, even in the world, is unprecedented in my lifetime. Here’s the verse for it.

Isaiah 43:18-21

“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. The wild beasts will honor me; the jackals and the ostriches, for I give water in the wilderness, rivers in the desert, to give drink to my chosen people, the people whom I formed for myself that they might declare my praise.”

I’ll talk more about how I believe God is going to do the unprecedented in my life on my blog this week. So how do you believe God will do the unprecedented in your life in 2018?
