In this post, I will briefly share some of the things that I believe the Lord has shown me concerning the year 2012. I pray that the Holy Spirit will quicken His Word and speak His rhema Word to us personally that we may align and rightly position ourselves before God this year and to see its fulfillment in our lives.
I saw in a vision, a pair of hands holding something that looks like a necklace with a key hanging on the necklace. "Key" speaks of authority and I believe the Lord is bestowing an increase of His authority for His bride this year. When the necklace is held by the pair of hands, a heart-shape is formed. The use and release of His authority is linked to the divine revelation of His love and our walking in His love - love for God and our neighbours. This also involves a life of obedience (and repentance) on our part.
This is a year where God will pour out His tremendous blessings upon His bride. We will see the fulfillment of the promises of His blessings that He has given us in the past. Expect great measures of His blessings - blessings that will not add sorrow to our lives but divine blessings to empower us to do what He has called us to do.
This year, may will be a part of God's move amongst His people. Just as on the day of Pentecost, there will be an outpouring of God's Spirit and love [suddenly] in the midst of His hungry and seeking bride. It is a time to re-dig the wells of intimacy and renewal in our personal lives and ministries. How much do we treasure the Lord above all else?
4. Divine re-connection
Relationships that have been disrupted in the past through misunderstandings [or any other reasons] will experience reconciliation and reconnection this year. The key is not to rely on our own understanding (what we know based on our past experiences or our own abilities) or man's limited advice. As we step into God's calling for our lives (what He has called us to do and seeing who we are in Him), broken relationships will be mended through the work of the Holy Spirit.
5. No more bread of sorrow
There will be no more eating the bread of sorrow. There is fresh manna every day for us - fresh supply of His provision and fresh supply of revelation. The old is gone, the new has come. It's not a time to dwell in the past but to arise and partake of God's richest provisions - His righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost!
Many will also experience an expansion (larger boundaries) in their lives and ministries. Our part is to remove the old boundaries (and limitations) and we will see God's grace at work in our lives extending our boundaries. Get ready to expand the capacity of our hearts and our role is to maintain purity of hearts.
John 10:10 - The thief comes only to steal. kill and destroy but Jesus comes to give life and life abundantly. This verse is quickened to me on New Year's day. I believe that this is a season of abundance and restoration for His bride. What the enemy has stolen, we declare 7-fold return this year. This divine work of restoration is connected to the theme of "Jubilee" from the Scriptures. We declare "Jubilee" over every area of our lives!
Father, words are not adequate to express our gratitude for Your love and faithfulness to us in the year 2011. You were with us all through the ups and downs. May we love You and know You more each day of 2012. May Your glory be revealed more and more through Your bride. Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. All glory and praise to you forever and ever. Amen.
“Oh that in 2012, you would bless me and enlarge my border, and that your hand might be with me, and that you would keep me from harm so that it might not bring me pain!”
