The Year 2013 Will Be Known As “The Year Of Obedience”.
This is going to be crucial to our success this year. We must hear God’s voice and obey swiftly and succinctly. This is a vital truth for this coming year. We must be exactly where God wants us to be at the exact time He wants us to be there to accomplish exactly what He has in store for us. This applies to every area of our lives. God is going to show us where to be and what to do, but it is up to us to obey. We must be in the “exact” place he wants us to be to be successful. (See Matthew 6:33)
2013 is going to be a very strategic year for My people, says the Lord. It is imperative that you hear My voice and obey all that I tell you to do. You must come close to me and listen carefully to My voice this year. I am going to reveal My plans and ways to you, but you must obey My voice. When I show you what to do, do not be afraid to do it, I will provide for you, says the Lord. This is very important for the days ahead. Your eyes must be on me, and on me alone. You cannot look to anyone or anything else, I alone must be your source and supplier. I AM the Lord your provider. You must look, see, and obey what I have shown you. This is the key to your success, says the Lord.
In 2013 we must “focus on the favor” and follow it. As we “follow the favor”, provision will be supplied. We have to understand that “miraculous provision” will always accompany “miraculous vision”. When God shows us what to do this year, we must take the step of faith and “expect” the provision to be supplied. It is our faith that will release the provision.
As I commanded My Prophet Elijah to go to the brook Cherith, and the ravens fed him in the morning and in the evening, I will feed you and provide for you. I will provide for you when you are in the place that I have commanded you to be. It is crucial that you hear My voice and obey, says the Lord. The key to Elijah’s success was that he obeyed My voice and went to the place that I sent him. This is very important for you to understand this year and in the years to come. After Elijah obeyed and saw my miraculous provision, I sent him to Zarephath. He heard My voice and obeyed. I supplied miraculously for him “there”. This is crucial to your success this year and in the days ahead, says the Lord. (See 1 Kings Chapter 17)
Psalm 37:23 says “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.”
This is a very important scripture verse for us in 2013. God is going to lead and direct us according to His perfect will. We must hear His direction and obey. It will take faith and courage to fulfill the will of God for our lives in 2013. (See Joshua Chapter 1)
There will be times when it will look impossible, like there is no way that what I have spoken to you will come to pass, but you must stand fast to My word and even though it looks impossible, you must remember that I AM the God of the impossible. You must know in your heart that with Me there is nothing impossible, says the Lord.
2013 will be a year of building upon what was birthed and what began in 2012. We must build deeper as well as higher and wider. Many new relationships were birthed last year. Many new ministries and visions were implemented. This year we must build and expand on what began last year. This will be a year of growth and increase. This will be a year of “acceleration”, things are going to start speeding up like never before.
You will see the “favor of Joseph” come upon you in a greater way this year. I am going to release this favor in such a way that many of My people will receive land, buildings, and government favor like never before. This will be for the building and furthering of My Kingdom, says the Lord. I am going to surprise many of My people with miraculous deals on land, buildings, materials, and the things they need to carry out My purposes, says the Lord. I say to you, “expect favor” and you will see it come to pass in your lives. You must know that this is My will and My plan for you, says the Lord.
Proverbs 13:11-12 says “Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase”. “Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life”.
These are very important verses for us in 2013. As we co-labor with the Lord this year we will see great increase, not only spiritually but also physically. The things that we have desired for so long are going to come to pass this year!
This is going to be a year of “fulfillment”, says the Lord. This is going to be a year when many of My people will see the very desires of their hearts come to pass. As they have been faithful to the call that I have placed on their lives, and as they have remained faithful to me and to my word, they will see the very desires of their innermost beings come to pass before their very eyes this year, says the Lord.
Psalm 37:4 says “Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart”. We are going to see this word come to pass in many lives this year.
Psalm 13:5-6 says “But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation”. “I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me” . We are going to watch these promises come to pass in our lives this year. We too will sing God’s praise as he “deals bountifully” with us!
Proverbs 13:21-22 says “Evil pursueth sinners: but to the righteous good shall be repayed”. “A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just”.
These verses are very important to us in 2013 and beyond. We are going to see the hand of God release miraculous provision to us in astounding ways. We are going to experience retribution, payback, and interest on things we felt were taken from us. We will watch this come to pass this year. We must begin to “look” for this right away and throughout the entire year. God is going to bless us in many different ways and from many different places. Look for favor and blessings even from the corporations and businesses of the world. Look for money, resources, and even inheritances to be restored to you this year.
Watch as I astound you with what I will do in your life this year. As you walk closely with Me, I will cause my favor to shine upon you. I will cause doors that were shut to you to swing open wide for you. I will cause dry wells to teem with water. I will cause barren ground to produce bountifully, I am going to shock and surprise you in many ways this year, says the Lord. It is time to lift your vision higher and your expectations to a greater level. I am going to astound you and show Myself strong on your behalf, says the Lord. I am going to fulfill many of your dreams this year. Hold on to Me and I will cause you to succeed. Walk with Me and you cannot fail. Stay close to me and you will fulfill destiny, says the Lord.
Proverbs 13:25 says “The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want”.
2013 is going to be a year of “incredible vision and miraculous provision”. We are going to walk “satisfied” with the Lord. He has promised to meet all our needs and we are going to see His abundant provision in 2013. God will fulfill His promise when we obey Him. Get ready for the most amazing and exciting year of your life. “The days of destiny are here!”
