You answer us in righteousness, with awe-inspiring works, God of our salvation, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the distant seas. You establish the mountains by Your power, robed with strength. You silence the roar of the seas, the roar of their waves, and the tumult of the nations. Those who live far away are awed by Your signs; You make east and west shout for joy.
- Psalm 65:5-8 HCSB
My word for 2019 is POWER. Throughout 2018, God was beginning to reveal to me His overwhelming power and might. I always knew that God was powerful, but until the end of 2018, I never trained my eyes to look for His displays of might or implored my heart to fully believe in His power. 2019 just began and already God is showing me His power in new ways. He is connecting dots that I never could've connected on my own. He is confirming my calling in those around me, and He is showing me all of the ways He has been preparing me for years for this specific purpose now in 2019.
The truth is that God is powerful whether I acknowledge that power or not. God is victorious whether I take part in that victory or not. But I am learning every day that He wants me to see His power. He wants me to reign in victory with Him.
So, for 2019, my word is Power. I am laser focused on recognizing God's power and, with His help, seeing His power manifested in my own life. Not for my benefit or to gain fortune or fame out of selfish ambition, but to see and take part in a mighty movement of God. To see lives changed by the power of the Gospel of truth and freedom. To see chains that have been in place for hundreds of years broken at the mention of His name. I am already seeing it in the beginning days of this year. Impossible prayers are being answered and I'm learning that there really isn't a prayer that is “impossible” anymore. Let 2019 be the year that you are intentional about recognizing God's power and might.
1. What are some glimpses of God's overwhelming and awesome power that you have seen in your own life over the past year?
2. In your daily life, are you fully sold out to the idea that God can?
3. How can you shift your mindset by truly understanding the power of God?
God, thank You! You are all powerful and You are worthy of our awe and thanksgiving. Thank You for showing Your power and thank You for working to reveal Yourself to me daily. Use me this year, God, to be a vessel for Your life-changing and powerful Gospel to reach a world that needs Your hope. Show me ways that I can shift my mindset by realizing Your power. In the name of Jesus I ask these things. Amen
