Yesterday, I quoted this scripture in The Living Bible translation to drive home a point. Many times we get so caught up in the “thee” and “thou” of the King James Version that the word of God becomes abstract to us. Beloved, the word of God is God’s personal writing to you. Yes, it was first written to men of old, but every word there is relevant to us today. Don’t let the devil deceive you into excluding yourself. I can imagine someone reading this today and saying, “I don’t know what to believe anymore! I have tried all I know how to do, yet nothing seems to be working.” If this describes you, I am glad you are reading this devotional today, because God is set to turn your story around.
When God gave us this theme, He already knew what you had been through. He knows your past and present and nothing is hid before Him. Yet He says that this is your Year of all Sufficiency. Don’t entertain one iota of doubt in your heart. Like Mary, simply receive and say to God, “be it unto me according to your word.”
Look at today’s verse again. I need you to get genuinely excited about the word of God to you this year. Remember, God does not crack jokes, He says what He means and means what He says. This year, you will have sufficiency in all things. Whether it is in finances, the fruit of the womb, a job, an examination, marriage, etc.-whatever area of life, I declare that this is your year. Guess what? You will not just have sufficiency; you will abound unto all good work. What does this mean? It means that no matter what you are called for, you will have the resources to meet it in Jesus name. He did it for Abraham; He will do it for you. Abraham was not just blessed; nations were blessed through Him. You will not just be blessed; you will be a blessing in Jesus name.
