Day 21 – Beginning!

2020 VISION | Day 21 | Beginning!

“Behold, the former things are come to pass,

and new things do I declare”(Isaiah 42:9, KJV).

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

See, I am doing a new thing”(Isaiah 43:18, KJV).

“If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: 

old things are passed away; behold, all things 

are become new”(II Corinthians 5:17, KJV).

We started with “It Is Finished.” We fasted. We prayed for Victory,  Vision, Validity, Visitation, and Vigilance. Now, we begin. As a person, and as a church, let’s put these concepts, and this new 2020 VISION on the road. Let’s get busy for the kingdom of God. We came to this fast like we were. Let’s begin on a new path. It isn’t hard to find. The path may be new to us, but it is old to Adam, Moses, Abraham, Isaac, David, Daniel, Isaiah, Micah, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Paul. The new path is a walk in the sweet grace of God. It was forged on a lonely walk up a hill by His son but worn smooth by those who have gone before us in the way of the cross. Let’s join the body of believers in our community and around the world. We have more to he happy about, more to be excited about than any other people on earth. In this fast, we have been sustained and strengthened, enlightened and excited,  provided for and proven – every day – that God’s mercy really is new every morning. Let’s begin sharing this truth with others. Let’s begin the work God has for us. 

Prayer: Father, we honor You alone for all the mercy and love you show us. Give us Daniel’s confidence, David’s reliance, Paul’s certainty, Elijah’s vision, and the humbleness of the disciples who left all their seeming security behind to discover eternity through Your Son. Give us peace, provision, and a path to serving your kingdom. Bless our church to be a light that shines brighter than the darkest night. Give us work and willing workers. Give us a mission and a mandate from You that we can truly be more than conquerors because we love You. Father, be the center of our lives and center us in Your will. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
