Topic: The Lord Will Increase You [Saturday December 30, 2017]
“You will give me greater honor than before and turn again and comfort me.” – Ps. 71:21 (TLB)
As the year gradually draws to a close and in another 48 hours we will be celebrating a new year, I prophesy over your life that the Lord will increase you in 2018. All that you have experienced this year for good will be multiplied in your life in the coming year. The path of the just, the Bible says in Prov. 4:18, is like shining light that shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day. I declare over you that your tomorrow will be greater. The Lord who has taken you through this year will perfect all that concerns you in the coming year. He will cause you to eat the riches of the gentiles and in their glory, you will make your boast (Is. 61:6). The Lord who has called you by your name will ensure that head or tail your win. He will make all things work together for your good in the year 2018.
All the years the locust, the caterpillar and the palmerworm have eaten shall be restored. Great grace will rest upon you. The Lord who has caused you to see today will fill your mouth with laughter. In every area that you have experienced a reproach, I speak over your life that the reproach shall be lifted. The coming year will be your year of celebration. Your testimony will speak and it will be noised abroad.
However, as I pray for you, remember, any prayer that depends ONLY on God is an irresponsible prayer. For everything you want to see happen for you in 2018, there is a part you must play. Don’t be slothful, rather roll up your sleeves and get to work because God is set to prosper the works of your hands.
I rejoice with you because I know it is a dawn of a new day for you. Indeed eyes have not seen and ears have not heard what God has in stock for you. Stay focused, looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of your faith and He will come through for you. I bless you in Jesus’ name.
