As we embark into 2012, my heart is filled with joy and excitement to be a part of an incredible season that has been foreordained by God for such a time as this. It is such an honor for me to be a part of His movement and witness first hand God performing His mighty act on behalf of His children.
2012 is a year of favor and fresh anointing for His children to walk in boldness and conquer what is our birthright through His covenant with us. In 2012, we will possess everything we have been hoping for, desired for, prayed for and wanted. I believe 2012 will bring a time of restoration, establishment, victory and peace for those remnants who believe in the amazing work of Christ on the Cross. God is looking to honor and establish those who have understood that “It is not by works but by faith in the Son of the Living God who loved us and has given Himself for us”. Most of us have struggled to make things happen in the past. We have lived a life of guilt and condemnation. God is saying “no need to struggle, because Jesus has taken care of it for us”. The Bible declares that “there is therefore, now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, for the Spirit of life that is in Christ Jesus has set them free from the spirit of sin and death.” God is looking for those who are in harmony with Him and boldly believe in their covenant right to reclaim what the enemy has stolen from them. God wants us to shout and declare that we are free indeed from fear, doubt, guilt, condemnation, lack and limitation. He wants us to take His word at face value and say, “I am my Father’s and my Father is mine, therefore no weapon formed against me shall prevail.” While the world is declaring war, famine, disease, lack and limitation, we must declare God’s word. We have a Father who prospers us in the midst of famine; therefore, in this new day, we must fix our eyes on the author of all things who makes a way out of no way and gushes water out of a solid rock.
As I was getting ready to write this blog, I felt that I needed to understand what the number 12 meant in the Bible. The number 12 is found 187 times total in the Bible. God used the number 12 to illustrate His perfect plan. Since He is the same yesterday, today and forever more, We must dig deeper to see what He has said in the past that will be repeating now in our time on earth. Twelve is a perfect number signifying perfection of government. It is found as a multiple in all that has to do with rule. Twelve is the product of 3 (the perfectly Divine and heavenly number; The Trinity) and 4 (the earthly, the number of what is material and organic). The number 12 which is a multiplication of 3 and 4, represents divine authority and appointment, as well as governmental foundation and perfection, and shows completeness. In 2012, God will establish His plan and purpose in each and every one of us who have chosen to trust Him and follow Him. By establishing His plan in us, He is establishing His government on earth. We are His righteousness, His royal priesthood, His holy nation. We must stop seeing ourselves as defeated inadequate sinners and be in harmony with what God says about us and know that all of this was made possible by the sacrifice of a perfect Lamb of God who took away our sins.
As we honor God by being in harmony and rhythm with what He is saying about us, He is also trusting and honoring us to do exploit on earth on His behalf. Trials will come but it is a matter of choice to agree with it or not. If we agree with it, we have missed the mark and it will devour us. If we fix our eyes on Jesus, remembering our covenant through His Blood, then God will fight our battles turning all disasters into victory. God is ready for us to pour out His anointing, to empower us to conquer and restore what the enemy has stolen. As we are getting ready to celebrate 2012, let us fix our eyes on the mark of the price of the High calling. I encourage you to trust God and fix your eyes on Him for all you need. Establish an intimate relationship with Him, be in rhythm with Him, moving only when He speaks, then you will eat the fruit of the land. We are ambassadors for Jesus, called to exalt Him in all the earth.
Enjoy your victory in 2012.
