I have a strong feeling that 2018 is a special year to do what God has asked, and will ask us to do. I think supernatural partnerships will be arranged, unbelievable contracts will be granted, ridiculous offers will be presented, and phenomenal ideas will come to our awareness. However, if we let fear and procrastination stop us from getting prepared, we won’t be equipped when these divine doors of opportunity open. So wipe-off and gussy-up—
The water is stirring in 2018!
John 5:1-9 tells the story of a paralyzed man who waited at the pool of Bethesda for thirty-eight years for someone to put him into the water. The custom was that every year an angel would come down and stir up the water, and the person who stepped in first was healed from whatever disease they had. When Jesus saw this particular man lying there by the pool, He told him to, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.”
Do you have the faith to do what Jesus is telling you to do in 2018?
I don’t know about you, but since the water is stirring, I’m not going to step in, I’m jumping in. Even though I can’t swim a lick. I asked the Lord to point out anything that I’m ignoring or doing wrong that would hinder me from progressing in my aspirations. Therefore, my eyes and ears are opened for His directions and corrections.
If you’re not already doing the following, take time to consider these suggestions:
- The water is agitated now—don’t wait until it settles down.
You won’t absolutely, positively know what you can do—until
- Ask God to show you what He wants you to accomplish this year. Do whatever He tells you to do. You have nothing to lose.
You have nothing to lose that shouldn’t be lost.
- Be willing to humble yourself and go through the hard tests (prerequisite for blessings).
Be strong; fight the good fight of faith—and win!
- Be glad for those who are making advancements in areas you would like to see accomplished in your life.
Stay in faith—yours might take a minute.
Remember, the water is stirring NOW—go for it!
