There’s a kind of knowing that comes in silence not in words – but we must first be still.
The Hebrew word translated “be still” literally means ‘let go of your grip’. – Ruth Haley Barton
“Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
Isaiah 43:19 AMPC
What’s God speaking to you today? Maybe He hasn’t given you one word for the new year, but instead re-affirmed something you’ve been praying and seeking His direction on.
The written (logos) word of God is His promise, His Truth. The revelation of what that word means for YOU (rhema) is His sovereignty, His providence & purpose for your life. That Rhema word only comes to us when we seek Him first. This revelation is included in that Matthew 6:33 promise!
My word for the new year is SURRENDER
Happy New Year!!! I feel like I can say that because it’s still the beginning of the new year! And y’all there’s no magic in January 1st AMEN (shout out to Lara Casey for uncovering that truth)
My one word for this year is Surrender. As I was studying this word today God revealed that the word means to yield control, to give up completely in favor of another, to give oneself up into the power of another. Then He took me to Philippians 2:13 which says For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.
See on our own, none of these goals can be accomplished. I mean, they can but we will either strive, stress or slowly fade in one area of our lives. When we open our eyes, ears and hearts to allow God to give us the strength, instruction, patience and peace; no matter what the goal or task; He will see to it that it will be accomplished.
One day, just after the new year began I sat with my goals on the #powersheets and I started feeling a bit of frustration and intimidation rise up. I literally had to stop writing and ask God to show me how to write out these goals. One thing He said to me is that I can plan all day, I can write out the steps and strategize, but if I don’t move then nothing will happen. He started asking me what steps I want to take (WITH HIS STRENGTH AND ABILITY) to get closer to the goals and desires of my heart.
The way I see it, there’s a strategy that’s already mapped out that simply includes me getting quiet and listening to see what God whispers. And if I’m so full of me & my stuff I might miss it. I don’t wanna miss it. I’m not slacking so no need to be concerned or begin to question what happened to the passion. I’m intentionally giving this space to God & His plans. If anything you can begin cheering now, because Satan just got notice. Oh yeah he’s gonna regret he ever messed with me. Every day I get stronger. Every day more certain. Everyday I breathe in & out and I’m overwhelmed by the breath of God and how it transforms me spirit, soul & body. Every. Day. Deeper. Dependence. Profound Reliance in Christ.
Where are you on your goals? What are your dreams? How can I help?
Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Philippians 3:12

So rather than doing something God had asked them to do, they thought of their own great idea. Rather than make God’s name great for his glory, they sought to make a name for themselves for their own glory, and they built the Tower of Babel.
We were built for the greatness of God. But left to ourselves we love being great more than we love making God great. So whether you are building the tower for your own name, or you are just too scared to even try to build anything because you don’t want to look too egotistical, both are wrong.
The enemy is subtle and warps truth into lies for us. He tells us we are being humble, responsible, and selfless, while we are killing the things God put us on the planet to do, the things that would build his kingdom.// Jennie Allen – Reckless
