We might be in different time zones geographically; however, According to the clock of Heaven, we are already in 2018 on God’s calendar. I want to personally congratulate you for entering into 2018 with us. We are looking at our spiritual clock and from where we stand; we have already journeyed into 2018. It does not matter what the human clock says. God’s time is perfect and He is always on time.
Brothers and Sisters in Christ – welcome to 2018.
We have finally crossed over to a New Year and we are excited about the things that the Lord is showing us. As I inquired with the Lord regarding this New Year 2018, He took me to the realm of the Spirit and He showed me the number “20”, “1” and “8”. I searched the scriptures about these numbers. I was led by the Spirit of God to turn to the 20th Book of the Bible.
Here is the list of the first 20 books of the Bible (#1) Genesis, (#2) Exodus, (#3) Leviticus, (#4) Numbers, (#5) Deuteronomy, (#6) Joshua (#7) Judges, (#8) Ruth, (#9) 1 Samuel (#10) 2 Samuel (#11) 1 Kings (#12) 2 Kings (#13) 1 Chronicles (#14) 2 Chronicles (#15) Ezra (#16) Nehemiah (#17) Esther (#18) Job (#19) Psalms (#20) Proverbs
I opened my Bible to the 20th Book which is the Book of Proverbs. The Spirit further lead me to Chapter 1, verses 1 to 8. If you put the numbers “1” and “8” together, you have “18”. This completes the year “2018”. Here is what the Bible says
Proverbs 1:1-8 “The proverbs of Solomon, King David’s son, from Israel: Their purpose is to teach wisdom and discipline, to help one understand wise sayings. They provide insightful instruction, which is righteous, just, and full of integrity. They make the naive mature, the young knowledgeable and discreet. The wise hear them and grow in wisdom; those with understanding gain guidance. They help one understand proverbs and difficult sayings, the words of the wise, and their puzzles. Wisdom begins with the fear of the LORD, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Listen, my son/daughter, to your father’s instruction; don’t neglect your mother’s teaching.”
This is the time for God’s children (you and I) to be guided by divine wisdom. We have been placed at a vantage point and given an edge over the things of this world. The season for our growth has come. The year 2018 is our year to flourish in wisdom and power. The wisdom of God is the operating force of God. It guides and leads us wherever we go. You shall not make mistakes in 2018. All your mistakes of the past shall be converted to something great in this New Year 2018. Our verse for the year (Proverbs 1:1-8) says the “Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom”. Those who have a deep reverence for God and the things of God shall be granted divine wisdom while those who mock God and run away from Him (fools) shall walk on their folly.
Proverbs 24:3-7 “By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches. A wise man is full of strength, and a man of knowledge enhances his might, for by wise guidance you can wage your war, and in abundance of counsellors there is victory. Wisdom is too high for a fool; in the gate he does not open his mouth”
Wisdom will build you houses in 2018. Wisdom will open doors for you and win battles that you never imagined. This is what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to us this New Year. You will not have to fight your battles in this New Year. When you surround yourself with wise men/women of God and receive direct insight from the counsellor (the Holy Spirit); when you open your mouth to speak, nobody will be able to stand before you in your city, your school, your company, your nation or in your neighbourhood.
Luke 21:15 “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which none of your adversaries will be able to withstand or contradict.”
THUS SAITH THE LORD, THE YEAR 2018 IS THE YEAR OF WISDOM!!!
This is your year.
This is your time.
This is your season to flourish in wisdom.
Just as King Solomon flourished with God’s wisdom, you too shall prosper in every area of your life in the name of Jesus.
Father, I believe that 2018 is my year. I believe that this is my time. I have been set apart for such a time as this. Wisdom is mine this year. The victorious life is mine. The prosperous life is mine. I receive the wisdom of Abraham to expand this year. I receive the wisdom of David to conquer territories this year. I receive the wisdom of Solomon to be abundantly supplied this year in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen
