2016 has arrived? Whether you are ready or not, it is here. Many of us make New Year's resolutions such as losing weight, exercising,etc. New beginnings are exciting and inspires us. Unfortunately,most of us do not carry out our resolutions to the end but there is good news on the horizon. If you are a believer, God has a plan and method for you to fulfill those resolutions.
The word of God says... My tongue is the pen of a ready writer (Ps 45:1). The tongue can be used for good or evil. It is a powerful weapon but the sad thing is that we do not know how to use it.Let's take the example of a fountain pen.There are many fountain pens for you to write. The fountain pen of who you are in Christ. Friend, you are not a sinner saved by grace, You are a new creation and God has a future for you. You have the mind of Christ (Yoke breaking, burden removing power of God) The word says that Christ is made unto you wisdom. What is wisdom? The ability to look for answers to problems in life. Think of it--The wisdom to come up with the answers to your problems in 2016!
Then, there is the fountain pen of financial prosperity. Friend, being rich is not a sin because the word says that money answereth all things. (Ecc 10:19) Yes, we need to guard our hearts and not let money be our God but in the hands of wise believers, it can be a powerful tool! I, personally, get excited when I am challenged to give and stretch my faith. It, not, only gives me a return on my money but allows me to live under an open heaven. (Mal 3:10) When you live under an open heaven, anything goes and you can experience a deeper dimension of the blessings of God.
Think about it, the body of Christ has made great inroads in the past. We own a couple of TV and radio stations, We are in the internet 24/7 and lately, we made some inroads in the movie industry. God has great plans for you and he is excited about your future. Finally, there is the pen of healing. If you are doing fine and have no health issues--God bless you but I want to caution you to be on the alert. Sooner or later, you will have a health challenge. Don't wait to build your house when it is storming, do it now while it is sunny and clear. I believe every believer should immerse themselves with healing scriptures and pray them over their body and family members on a daily basis.
There are other pens that are there for you and ready to be used, so start asking God to give you wisdom to use your tongue wisely. Remember, that in the long run, God will have you on his book shelf for his glory. God bless. (Mal 3:16)
