Genesis 1:1 – In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Elohim means “creator”. God existed before He created the Heavens and the Earth. He had to be there before the beginning. He is the uncreated creator. He was not made by any man.
This is our year to create and to make things happen.
God wants to be very visible in your life. Do not depend on your skills, learn to depend on God.
He is not time bound and not constrained to time. He existed before time even began. He was not voted in as God, He is God. You can’t vote him out, you can’t elect Him, because God is God.
Hebrews 7:1-3 – 1 For this Melchizedek, king of Salem and priest of the Most High God, met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him. 2 To him Abraham also gave a tenth of all. He was first by interpretation king of righteousness, and after that also king of Salem, which is king of peace, 3 without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, he remains a priest continually.
Do not go into 2016 with the baggage of last year. Particularly, baggages of unforgiveness and bitterness. It can slow you down and contaminate your spirit and destroy everything God has in store for you for 2016.
You have to learn to move forward.
Philippians 3:13 – My brothers, I do not count myself to have taken possession, but one thing I do, forgetting the things behind and reaching forward to the things before,
- Learn to let go of the things of yesterday. Let go of unforgiveness and bitterness.
- Learn to put away childish things. Do not find excuses to not do what you’re supposed to do. Take responsibility.
1 Corinthians 13:10-12 – 10 But when the perfect thing comes, then that which is in part will be caused to cease. 11 When I was an infant, I spoke as an infant, I thought as an infant, I reasoned as an infant. But when I became a man, I did away with the things of an infant. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall fully know even as I also am fully known.
Opportunities will come in this year to help you advance. But if you come with a childish mentality, you will lose those opportunities for advancement.
Genesis 1:2-3 – 2 And the earth was without form and empty. And darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved on the face of the waters. 3 And God said, Let there be light. And there was light. 4 And God saw the light that it was good. And God divided between the light and the darkness. 5 And God called the light, Day. And He called the darkness, Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. 6 And God said, Let there be an expanse in the middle of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7 And God made the expanse, and divided the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so. 8 And God called the expanse, Heavens. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
God will address all these situations that you face. Before he created the earth, there was chaos and things were without form. But When God spoke, He created order out of the chaos. This is the power of ELOHIM.
Deuteronomy 8:18 – But you shall remember Jehovah your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, so that He may confirm His covenant which He has sworn to your fathers, as it is today.
Make sure that God is in charge of your life.
Isaiah 54:17 – No weapon that is formed against you shall be blessed; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment, you shall condemn. This is the inheritance of the servants of Jehovah, and their righteousness is from Me, says Jehovah.
Romans 12:2 – And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, in order to prove by you what is that good and pleasing and perfect will of God.
Proverbs 10:22 – The blessing of the LORD makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it.
