Welcome to 2016, and may I take this opportunity to wish you a very happy new year. I have decided to take a break from my current series, to bring you a word for 2016, so without further ado, let’s get started.
The word for 2016 is ‘the year of testimonies’. This is what I believe God has said to me, so I wanted to share it with all of you too. Now there are 2 sides to a testimony, so please let me explain.
The first thing that jumps to mind is that God is going to do some miracles in 2016, which is not entirely true, the truth is that WE will do some miracles. Now, before you get all annoyed and start calling me a heretic, WE will do the miracles, using the power and authority given to us by God. Not in our strength, but in His. The only ‘catch’ is that we have to do them, we can’t just sit and wait for God to do it, He has asked us. So this is the first thing, we’re going to have to step out in faith. This may take us out of our comfort zone, but that is when the miracles flow. Be encouraged, be expectant, exercise your faith.
The second thing is that we actually need to share the testimonies. I know of people who have experienced miracles in their lives, yet they don’t share it with others. We need to share testimonies, not only to encourage others, but to strengthen our own faith. Standing up in front of others, sharing what God has done in your life, will really fire you up. When God does something in your life, share it with others.
On that note, I want to give you an opportunity. I want to ask you to bookmark this blog post, and share it with your friends. I would like to give you the opportunity to write your testimonies in the comment section of this post. I will try and share this throughout the year to remind you, but please do bookmark this and be sure to write your testimonies in the comment section as and when they happen. I am looking forward to seeing some of the testimonies, and I’m sure that we will all be encouraged by what you have to say.
So what are you praying for in 2016, what are you believing for, what are you expecting? Let’s step out in faith, strive to see God’s will on earth as it is in heaven. Let’s be expectant this year. Let’s not stop there, we should be like this every year, but let’s start now.
2016 is going to be a good year!
