A New Thing Sprouts
As we have just entered into the New Year 2020, a year of new beginnings, I am sure that the Lord will transform your heart into God’s garden, the place where new life sprouts. The Lord Himself will do it for you. You need not struggle over things. All you have to do is give your heart to God. He will water and fertilize your heart with everlasting joy. He will make you grow like a healthy plant and flourish like an evergreen garden. Zechariah 4:6 says, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord Almighty.’ If you abide in God’s word and in Him, whatever you wish, it will be given to you.
A sister from Orissa attended a meeting in Jamshedpur. She was praying for her family's blessings and on the third day, my husband, Dr. Paul Dhinakaran, was sharing the word of God and praying for the people. He said, “Today, the Lord will give you a job. Whatever job the Lord gives you, take it.” This sister obeyed God’s voice. She went home and conveyed the same to her husband. Her husband also received that word, as he did not have a job. As a family, they believed in God’s word. Her husband applied for a job in a shipping company. Exactly according to God’s word, he got a job in that company but that sister didn’t leave God after receiving her blessing. She enrolled both her children in the Young Partner’s Plan in Jesus Calls. She also sponsored one of the TV programs with faith for more blessing. She desired to have a beautiful house of her own and soon bought a piece of land. The Lord enabled her to build a house on that same land.
The waiting period came to a pause in her life with God’s miracles. Are you waiting for long? Beloved, the Lord will give you an answer for what you are searching or waiting for in your life. You might be fed up with the long wait and life may seem deserted. But the Lord will make way for you in the desert. He will make a way for you to come out of your problems. Hold on to this promise: “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland” (Isaiah 43:19). Yes, He will speak to you through His words all through this year. You may be wondering, “How will this blessing come to me?” The Bible says in John 15:7, “If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” Every day as we remain in Him and His word in us, every blessing will come to us automatically. It will chase you and overtake you. Our loving Father will do this!
Dear Heavenly Father,
help me to have a heart that abides in You so that I may flourish like an evergreen garden. It’s not by might nor by power but by Your Spirit that I can do all things. Please teach me each day, what I’m supposed to do. I believe that You will answer my prayers. Give me faith and patience as I wait to see my miracles manifest. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ I pray.
