2022 A Year Full Of Heaven’s Opportunities

Every year comes with its share of both trials and tests.  Yet in the midst of those trials, as believers, we expect to triumph in all things.

This is the way the kingdom works.  We face the headwinds of hell and discover the opportunities of heaven.

If you scan the headlines it appears many want you to be worried about this new year.  News of economic uncertainty, political division, rumors of war, Covid spikes, and spiritual decline are everywhere.  Many are predicting another turbulent year.  

Peter wrote to the early church who was facing their own season of turbulence. “Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”

1 Peter 1:13 ESV

Peter was saying to the church, “put on your running shoes and get your head in the game.”  The church was birthed for moments like this.   Where others are fear-filled about the future, we are faith-filled.  Where some are filled with discouragement, we are filled with hope.  Why?  Because our hope is fully placed in the grace that comes through Jesus Christ.  

The good news is this grace can be experienced right now in this present year.  2022 can be the year you see the grace of Christ revealed in your home and family.  

So don’t let the naysayers send you into hiding from this year.  Come at 2022 like a freight train with great expectation to see heaven’s opportunities!

Here is what I expect in the coming year…

You face trails and test, but you will endure as one who is trustworthy!

You will see uncertainty all around you, but experience His prosperity over you!

You will face opposition, but you will know true victory in Jesus!

You will have many reasons to turn and run, but you will remain where He has called you and see revival!

You will watch others falter and fail, but you will continue to be faithful to the Lord!

You will hear of churches and church-leaders turning aside, but you will fix your eyes upon Jesus and be counted amongst His mighty remnant that is being raised up in these last days!

You will be blessed going out and blessed coming in!  You will be blessed!  Blessed upon blessed! 

How do I know this? Because I’ve set my hope fully upon His grace! 

Blessings to you and your household,

Pastor
