It has become more than just moments this year; it seems more like “In years like these!”
I think most of us expected more out of the year 2020 than we have received.
I look back on this year and I am reminded of my word for the year: “FLY!”
I can honestly say I expected much more than what I thought I had received.
At this time of year, I always take a look back at the word God gave me for the year. Reflecting, I feel like I have failed this year. But after time with the Lord this morning, I realized that I have done well.
Looking at this year filled with negativity and corruption and controlling, any of us who are still standing have mastered this year. I have been able to fly above the evil sources in my environment. I never thought God meant for me to fly above the evil, but now I can see that is what he equipped me to do in this year. I can honestly say that prior years have set me up to be above that corruption and chaos.
Then Scripture came to me as a reminder:
And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.
I am seated in the heavenly realms with Him. I have always envisioned that I was sitting on a large swing with Christ Jesus, looking out over the universe, secure in His love and His protection. I soar in the heavenlies with Him.
So yes, this year has been a success!
Heavenly Father, It has been a difficult year for us. Trying to find our faith in these sinking holes that surround us. I praise you Father, that I have been able to fly above the evil sources surrounding me. You have been faithful. Father, I pray that these words bless many today – that they will realize that they have done well in the midst of this corruption and chaos. Help us to keep our eyes upon You and to remember, that we do soar in the heavenlies with Jesus. Thank you, Lord. I ask this in Christ Jesus’ name, amen.
