BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Genesis 1, Genesis 2:1-17, Matthew 1:1-25, Psalm 1:1-6
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 2:24-40 (KJV)
24 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.
25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.
26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.
27 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,
28 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,
29 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:
30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
33 And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.
34 And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against;
35 (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.
36 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity;
37 And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.
38 And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.
39 And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth.
40 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
MEMORY VERSE: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.” – John 12:24
A great year starts and ends with making good decisions. Give your life and the New Year as a seed to God and you will flourish exceptionally.
PRAISE & WORSHIP
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
AS YOU PLACE YOUR LIFE AND JOURNEY IN GOD’S HAND THIS YEAR, I PROPHESY THAT IT SHALL BE A SWEET MEMORIAL FOR YOU, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
Mountain Top Life MESSAGE:
As the year 2022 begins, the utmost desire of many people is to be all-season fruit-bearing trees, flourish like the palm tree and grow as the cedar in Lebanon (Psalm 92:12). This is in line with the will of God for His children. However, many people only focus on this goal but fail to consider the conditions they need to fulfil in order to actualise it. Beloved, your life is a seed. You must surrender it to God and plant it in His hand for it to blossom. You also need to place it on the altar of sacrifice for your desired change of story to become a reality. This act of completely committing your life to God is called dedication.
The mustard seed is small and insignificant, but when planted, it becomes a big tree upon which birds perch and live. In the same way, no matter how small and insignificant your life is at the moment, if you dedicate it to God in service and worship, it will blossom and you will become very great. This is a secret I want you to run with in this extraordinary year. The turnaround you so much desire will become a reality; your delayed miracles and long-awaited testimonies will manifest as you dedicate your life to God. It is important to note that your all-round fulfilment is tied to your dedication. I encourage you to heed Jesus’ advice in John 12:24 (our Memory Verse for today) and give your life as a seed to God.
In Luke 9:23 and Matthew 4:19, Jesus said, “Follow me, I will make you…” It was a call for dedication and service. Simon Peter heeded the call and got truly dedicated to God; he became the foremost apostle, God’s battle axe in the early church and a world changer for Christ. He is still being mentioned in glowing terms today though he left the earth 2000 years ago. Beloved, such are the immeasurable blessings of dedication. As you dedicate your life to God in this New Year, may your life, ministry, career, business, marriage and finance blossom and flourish immensely, in the name of Jesus.
- My life, cooperate with the Spirit of the Living God this year and beyond, in the name of Jesus.
- This year, I dedicate my life, destiny, and all that belong to me to the Most High God, in the name of Jesus.
- My life will experience all-round flourishing and fulfilment this year, in the name of Jesus.
- I break every covenant of evil dedication working against my life, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, arise and destroy the consequences of evil dedication in my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Evil foundational yokes, preventing me from serving the Lord, break and die, in the name of Jesus.
- I shall not fail; I shall fulfil my divine destiny, in the name of Jesus.
