While John the Baptist was in prison, he heard about the works of Christ. So, he sent two of his disciples to ask Jesus if he was the one they were expecting or should they keep looking for someone else.
Jesus told his disciples to tell John ‘those things which you hear and see’.
The disciples saw ‘the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead raised, and the gospel preached to the poor.
When a person’s visual acuity is 20/20, it means that he/she has normal and clear vision (at 20 feet).
The church has been hearing the word of God for years, but 2020 will be the year that we will ‘hear and see’.
We will see what we have heard.
Happy New Year!
[Scripture reference: Matthew 11:1-5]
My mother passed away on Thanksgiving Day forty five years ago and this will be my first Thanksgiving and Christmas without my dad.
I will be fine, but for some people, this can be a difficult season and time of the year. If it is at all possible, please invite someone over for dinner or take them a plate or call them to make sure they are okay.
May this holiday season be a season of joy and blessing for you.
God is giving you new strength for the new year. I’m not saying things will be easier next year, but as you obey God, things will get better.
My prayer for you is that you don’t faint before you see the goodness of the Lord (Psalm 27:13). May the areas you failed in during the previous years, you now succeed and overcome them in the upcoming years. May you be wiser this new year than you were last year.
You’re going to have work harder this coming year. Keep praying, but do not use prayer as a substitute for work. God has given you much and He requires much from you.
Whatever you stopped believing God for, I pray that you believe again and trust God again. May you enjoy the blessing of the Lord that makes rich and adds no sorrow with it. You know what sorrow feels like, but now you will know HIS joy.
To those of you who were deceived and tricked out of something or who had something stolen from them, may God avenge you speedily. For every year that was stolen, lost or missed (even from your childhood), I pray that He restores those years – in one year.
It’s not too late for God to do what He promised. He is faithful that promised. God began a good work in YOU and He is going to complete it.
Happy New Year!!!
