Even Jesus took donations but had to pay taxes on what He received. I truly believe God will bless you if you bless us. Donate online at: https://www.elijahlist.com/donations/donation.php. We thank YOU, our dear readers, for blessing us with your generosity.
The Government of God is Arising
Welcome to 2012... a New Year that has already begun unfolding before us! Twelve is a significant number. It is the number of government and it
symbolizes divine accomplishment and governmental perfection.
The year 2012 is about the government of God arising. If we want to see the government of God arise in the earth, we must first allow it to arise in us, His people, in a greater way.
Because God's work is always a continuum, the new didn't begin with the midnight stroke of a clock on December 31st. What God has been building in our lives is ongoing and eternal. It is line upon line, truth upon truth, and experience upon experience. Therefore, we have not started something new in 2012, but we are continuing in the path He has set before us.
We must remember that our starting point is the Resurrection. We arose with Christ to a new life. Now, THAT was a new beginning! We begin with who Christ is in us and for us! We are alive to Him and to all that He wants to do in establishing His government and His righteousness in us. He is helping us learn to live and abide in our new identity.
This year, as God continues His work in us, let us allow the increase of His government in these areas:
Receiving and then expressing His goodness daily. You cannot give away what you have not first experienced for yourself. So, expect and receive His goodness every day and then show someone else that aspect of His government.
Living in a limitless way... not measured, showing God's abundant heart toward all.
Being more astonished at who God is for us rather than feeling overwhelmed by circumstances.
Processing everything through God's majesty.
This is a year to live with excitement and expectation! Expect God's divine work to manifest through you on a daily basis. His work in us is part of establishing His government in the earth.
Romans 12:2 urges us to, not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our mind.
Give up old mindsets and let them be replaced with a renewed mind.
