33. Message for 2012

This is the beginning of a new year, 2012 and what a privilege it is to be able to experience it. What a privilege to experience life! God has wonderful things planned for us for this year and we can all wait in anticipation of it! God wants to lead us all into the special plan He has for our lives. We simply need to make the time with Him to hear and understand what it is. Then we need to be obedient and follow His plan, and if we do, we will experience fulfillment like never before. He knows your weaknesses and your strengths and He knows what will work best for you. Take His Hand and follow His leading, you will not be disappointed. This can be your best year yet, but give control over to Him. Let Him lead your way, He knows best.

The Lord directs the affairs of the human race. We may be scared when we listen to the news, we may be scared when we listen to false prophets making false predictions about the future, but God has everything under control.

"Who has done such mighty deeds, directing the affairs of the human race as each new generation marches by? It is I, the Lord, the First and the Last, I alone am He." Isaiah 41:4.

Only God decides what happens. Only He is in total control, no one and nothing else. Don't get scared when things are prophecied that is not in the Bible. For example the ancient Mayan culture that predicts that 21 December 2012 is the end of the world. I am not going into the detail now, but all sorts of doom 'prophets' are doing the rounds and predicting things that are inconsistent of the God we know. It would be very inconsistent of Him to allow the pagan Mayans to discover such an amazing truth while keeping the many Old Testament prophets ignorant of the timing of the events. That is not the God I know. Listen to what God says:

"I am the First and the Last; there is no other God. Who else can tell you what is going to happen in the days ahead? Let them tell you if they can (and they can't), and thus prove their power." Isaiah 44:6,7 "I carry out the predictions of My prophets!" Isaiah 44:26

 Our God gave us the Bible and if you take time to study it you will find all the answers there. If you want to know about the future, study the Old Testament prophets, all their predictions have come true thus far. Of course no one knows the exact date when the tribulation period will begin, but several signs are given to us in the Bible to be able to sense that the season is near.

Friends, trust God with your future and nothing else. He is waiting for you to come to Him and He will direct your every step. I received the following verse from the Lord for you for this year. May God bless you abundantly and may you look back to 2012 as a year when your walk with the Lord deepened and a year in which you found inner peace, knowing that you are on God's track for your life.

"I have called you back from the ends of the earth so you can serve Me. For I have chosen you and will not throw you away. Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you with my victorious right hand." Isaiah 41:9, 10

Thank you God that You love us. Thank you for the wonderful things that You are planning for us. We look forward to 2012, knowing that You are already there, guiding us on the best pathway for our lives. In Jesus Name. Amen
