As we approach 2012, I pray that we are postured to enter what I believe the Spirit of God has decreed as a season of Kingdom Establishment. A mandate for the people of God to walk in that which is Completely New, where old things are passed away, and all things become new! Viewing life through the lens of a new paradigm. Living according to the Kingdom Agenda. Blessed with the benefits that a new beginning in Christ brings. It is imprinted in the Word that God gave to us.
It is time to stop imitating holiness, and just "be" holy. As we enter this season saints, don't "resolve" to be holy, transformed, renewed, refreshed. God calls us to "be" holy as God is holy. When we do so, not by might or power, but by His Spirit, blessings will overtake us. If you have not yet done so, surrender to the Kingdom mandate: Be not conformed to this world any longer, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable, and perfect will of God.
We have made beautiful music to the glory of God and for the good of others. But the best is yet to come! Just wait and see! But don't wait as the world waits. Wait as we are called to wait in the Kingdom! As those who find strength and renewal as we wait on the Lord! As those who find themselves mounting up with wings as eagles! As those who run, but never get weary; as those who walk (no matter how far the path, no matter how steep the slope) and never faint.
Blessings for the Completely New in 2012,
In His Service,
