1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
Happy New Year! It’s indeed a new beginning for you in Jesus’ Name. Every new season comes with new things; and every new era or dispensation begins with news. When a new discovery is made, a new dispensation begins. It is news that defines a new dispensation. The difference between the stone age and the jet age isn’t time, but discovery – light. Every dispensation is as sharp as the light that births it. Our opening Scripture shows us something very profound worth considering. It tells us that in the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. But God didn’t begin with a level playing field; He started with an undulating ground – darkness upon the deep, formlessness and voidness. God needed light to turn the tide; so, He commanded light to show up out of darkness. God said, let there be light, and there was light. Light was the news that began this age. It wasn’t sunlight; it wasn’t moonlight either. The sun and the moon were created days after. It was Word light. John 1:1-4 tells us, In the beginning was the Word and by the Word everything was created, and in the Word was life and that life was the light of men. This light was the revelation of the glory of God. 2 Corinthians 4:6 tells us that God who commanded the light to shine out of darkness has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. This is the light of the knowledge of God’s glory! That was all God needed to begin this age. If all God needed to begin this dispensation or age was this light, would you need more than this same light to begin the year 2021?
Understand that the light of the knowledge of the glory of God is also known as the light of the Word. John 1:4 tells us that in the Word is life and the life is the light of men. The light with which we must begin the year is Word light. Beloved, don’t go by your feelings. Refuse to let your circumstances call the shots. Don’t let the past dictate your new year. Let the Word take the lead. Follow the lead of the Word. Begin the year with the Word and you will end on a Word note. Remember, the Word is Alpha and Omega. Put the Word in your heart and in your mouth. Speak the Word into the new year and you will see the Word shape your life, circumstances and outcomes. Once again, Happy New Year and many Compliments of the Season! Shalom!
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION):
In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, this year 2021, I put the Word first. I declare and decree that the year plays out and unwinds for me according to the Word. I refuse to let my circumstances call the shots. I have this year play out as it is written in the Word in Jesus’ Name! Amen.
John 1:1-4; Hebrews 11:1-3.
