On new year’s eve, there is a constant shouting of a happy new year with fellow brethren and celebration. Yet, amidst all this celebration, you should ask yourself some questions; What has God planned for me in 2022? How do I receive it? What are my roles to play in 2022? How your 2022 will turn out to be will definitely depend on the answer to these questions. So, let get started!!!
The Plan of God for me in 2022?
One of the characteristics of God is that He has a plan for everything created (Eccl. 3:1). God did not create anything without having a purpose; for example, He will not create a car without having a driver in mind or without having a road map for the car to follow. So be right assured that God has a plan for you in 2022. The good news is that the plan concerning you is good (Jeremiah 29:11).
Long ago, when I was a teenager, there was a constant struggle about my Christian faith and how to discern the will or plan of God concerning my life. To the extent that I could not believe the word of God concerning my life because I did not know how to discern the things that God had installed for me. The turning for me came when I stumbled upon Jeremiah 29:11 and Proverbs 23:18.
Thought of Good
One of the most important truths that need to be settled in the heart of every believer is that the thought of God concerning their life and welfare is good. But, unfortunately, religion has made most people see God as one wicked master with canes in his hand to punish offenders. They forget that God is their heavenly father, and he wants to ensure that everything they need concerning life and godliness is provided.
To clarify all your doubts about the thought of God concerning you, there is a need to understand the character of God. One of the characters of God is that He is a good God (Psalm 100:5). When the word good is used, it is tied to morality most of the time. However, goodness is an entity that proceeds only from God (Mark 10:18). So, God is good, and he can not have anything evil concerning you. Therefore, His thought and plans for you is always good.
A profound statement that Jesus made about the thought of God and his willingness to give good gifts to his children is found in the book of Matthew 7:9 —
Parents, if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead? Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not! So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.
An Expected End
Most times, people are always anxious for the future and what it holds for them. However, God is saying that your future will be prosperous in 2022. Therefore, believers in Christ should learn to trust God concerning their future rather than trying to allow fear to dominate them. God has gone to your future and has said that it is good and the end is prosperous. When you realize that you have an expected end, you know that you can not die accidentally; you can not be struck down by any sickness; you can not live hopelessly; your expectations can not be cut shorts.
Following God’s Plan for Your Life in 2022:
God has so many things installed for you in this new year, and you need to know how to follow God’s plan. Here are some highlighted steps that you need to take to follow the plan of God;
Prayer of Agreement
Prayer of agreement is one way to be aligned with God’s plans for your life. Jesus taught his disciple how to agree with God in prayer in Matthew 6:10 —
Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
So, when you are praying, you should commit to knowing about God’s intention and pray in agreement all the time.
Discover God’s Plan via His Word
Prophesy and revelations are subject to the word of God. Therefore, if you make it a constant habit of studying the scripture, you will begin to get greater insight into the plan of God for your life. For example, reading the bible daily will help you better grasp the calling God has placed on your life and help you live the life He wishes for you.
Follow the commands He puts on your heart
Allow God to direct your steps and place your faith in the words He places on your heart. God speaks to his children in various ways, such as dreams, vision, thoughts, audible voices, etc. Whatever means God is using to speak to you, ensure that you follow the commands. By following His commands, you will begin to walk in the plan of God daily and ultimately till the year ends.
Have Faith in God
Without faith, it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). Therefore, to experience all that God has installed, you need to place your faith in him completely. Faith is the absolute belief that whatever God has said concerning you will surely come to pass regardless of your current experience. Just like the patriarchs of faith (Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Rehab, etc.), who had faith in God and obtained the promises of God, you need to do likewise.
