You’ve already been pre-approved and pre-qualified by Jesus for a New Year. It is a part of the future God already planned for you from before the foundation of the world according to Ephesians 1:3-4. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: 4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love.” By virtue of your position in Christ, God’s blessing and favor is yours. This was bought and paid for by Jesus in His redemptive work on the Cross. Ephesians 1:7 says, “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.”


Our part in it is to believe it and expect it. Live 2019 with a confident and favorable expectation that blessing and good things can happen to us. We have to be expecting and reaching for it based on God’s Word or hope from His promises.  What are you expecting and reaching for in 2019? Many Christians have no favorable outlook for their future. Check yourself: If God appeared to you and said, “I’ll give you what you are expecting from Me in 2019,” would you have anything that you are expecting? First Corinthians 2:9-10 says, “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”


You can start the New Year off right by letting the Lord show you all He’s planned by doing what Jeremiah the prophet said and, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not Jeremiah 33:3.”
