We are in the last days of 2022, and about to go into the new year of 2023. People of this earth, both Christian and non-Christian have been through a lot, but the Noel, “Good News” is that Immanuel has been with us. He is faithful and true and will forever remain so. God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will he not make it good? (Numbers 23:19) I take great comfort, and so should you in the fact that our God is truthful. These past few years have been filled with lies and conflict and along with these lying and conflicting spirits a spirit of confusion has been released. But praise God we can go into 2023 with Immanuel and pour out His Spirit of Truth and be set free from the snares of the enemy.
He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are justice, a God of truth and without injustice; righteous and upright is He, (DEUT. 32:4). And yes, He is our Rock, our firm foundation on which we stand, and during such shaky times, we do not have to be weakened, but can remain strong on His solid ways.
Pondering upon these two Scriptures I can see we have a choice to make. We can either focus on the truth and faithfulness of our God, or we can zero in on the lies and betrayal of the enemy against us. With this choice we can either enter into 2023 frustrated by the betrayal of 2022, or we can decide to believe the good news and stand upon the Rock, our Lord and trust in Immanuel’s faithfulness towards us. I choose the latter, and I pray you do to. Let’s pray.
Dear Father God,
You know how overwhelmed I have been during this past year of 2022, but I make the decision to not repeat this frustration in 2023. So, I ask You to forgive me for not believing in Your good report reported throughout Your Word for me. And I ask You, Holy Spirit to help me through this next year of 2023 to stand upon the foundation of Your truth and faithfulness. I desire to walk in the freedom Your truth provides me. I make a declaration of faith as I enter into 2023, that I know The Truth, and You set me free for Your great glory, in Jesus’ name I pray, amen and amen.
