Jesus Calling: December 31 (2024)

Father, I don’t have enough space on this blog to express my heartfelt gratitude to You, but I do have a whole day to stay on bended knees in the quite of my home and worship You in Spirit and in truth, dance and sing like it is my last day on this earth. I pray that You grant me wisdom and understanding to manifest Your peace, joy, blessings, on this last day of the year, and empower me to be kingdom minded and yield to the leading of the Holy Spirit throughout this day, giving glory and praise to Your hoy name. Please forgive me for any or all times I didn’t decrease for You to increase in my life. Thank You Lord, for JESUS.

I join my brothers and sisters in Christ on this blog to thank You Father, for being with us throughout this year and through the many challenges, trials, problems and health issues, but never once leaving us! It is no doubt that You knew what 2020 was going to be like.
Yet, we cannot deny that You showered us with joy, happiness, victories, protection, healing and the blessings of being in Your presence all 365 days! The fact that we are still here on this earth and survived through this tumultuous year, means that we are to declare the glory, power, and faithfulness of who You are. It also means that You cannot change and we belong to the covenant family of Abraham through faith in Christ Jesus. It means that we are victors and NOT victims. It means that You are not done with us, You have plans for our lives here on this earth, and for this and so much more, we are internally grateful and thankful to You. Thank You for our families, love ones and friends that we are blessed to have with us.
We ask for forgiveness for every sin committed knowingly and unknowingly during the year, forgiveness for every door we opened as a result of ignorance, carelessness, and compromise, Forgiveness for every sin of pride, selfishness, forsaking our brethren in need, and hardness of heart, forgiveness for our trespass of un-forgiveness towards others, forgiveness for times when we did not heed to the prompting of the Holy Spirit speakibg, because we were consumed in our own ways and please Father, forgive us for those times we doubted You where we should have exercised our faith and taken steps to bring You glory.

I join my faith here with Your saints this morning and I declare from the alter of grace that our coming blessings will be unstoppable by the forces of darkness. Just as You continued to bless Abraham even in his old age (Gen. 24), so will You bless all of our efforts and restore to us ALL that which the locusts and canker worms stole from us in 2020. The year is ending but the blessings, mercies, favor and goodness from You in our lives are endless! May we not be deterred from Your service, but keep pressing on, never giving up. We thank You for a year that we can put behind us after today (yet, always be thankful and never forgetting how You walked with us throughout), but look ahead to new beginnings, keeping our eyes fixed on You, the Author and Finisher of our faith.

We close this year in humble gratitude, praise, thanksgiving and Love for You our Creator, the Immutable, Infinite, Self-Sufficient, Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent, Wise, Faithful, Good, Just, Merciful, Gracious, Loving, Holy, and Glorious God and Father (Col. 1:17, Mal. 3:6, John 5:26, Psalm 33:6, Isa. 46:9-10, Ps. 139:7-10, Rom. 11:33, Deut 7:9, Ps. 34:8, Duet 32:4, Rom. 9:15-16, Ps. 145:8, 1 Jn. 4:7-8, Rev. 4:8, Hab. 3:4). In Jesus’ name, Amen.

JC Family, It was great sharing and being shared by You, the wonderful living Words of the Lord this year. He has proven over and over just how faithful He is. May we continue to walk in the spirit of love and unity for the sake of God’s kingdom.
Blessings to you and yours this last day of 2020. I look forward to this journey with You again in 2021, through Christ Jesus our Lord! Blessings and Peace.
