Thank you for checking this page and for following the series on things to do to make 2022 great. If you are yet to read the last two pieces in this series, ensure you read them before you continue. They will bless you. Today, I will be sharing what you need to know to make the year 2022 great. Let’s dive into it.
If you have followed our anchor scripture for this year’s theme “Our year of pleasant surprises” you are likely to see a few things in the verses. Well, if you don’t know our anchor scripture, it is Isaiah 54:3-4. Here are the verses below in king James version of the Bible;
Isa 54v3. For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and the left, and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.
v4. Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood anymore.
If you pay attention to these verses, one of the first things you will see there is enlargement. Check verse 3 again and read it more like you want to understand it. This year enlargement is coming for you. Our discussion today is about that enlargement that is coming for you. How will it come? And what is the correlation of that enlargement with our theme for the year?
The reason the first two articles were on evaluation and vision is that the enlargement that is coming is dependent on you. God is ready when you are ready. If you fail to do your part, you will be like a soldier who has the best safety gadget but fail to use it to fight. He will lose when the battle heightens and he might lose his life.
If the soldier dies at the battle, it will not be because he didn’t have the right tools to fight, it will be that he chose to die when he could have lived. Don’t let your journey in 2022 be like that soldier’s illustration. Take a look at verse 3 again and see that you are the one breaking forth on the right and the left. If you don’t break forth, nothing breaks for you and a breakthrough is not visible.
You may not look like the person that is breaking forth because of the present situations. But to break forth, you will need to take some steps afraid, you will need to do some things just hanging on God. It is in this that pleasant surprises will be coming out of your path. So, this year is for those with a daring mind for great things. Dare it, do it afraid, and your pleasant surprises will come.
What you need to know to make the year 2022 great is that it is a year to take bold steps despite the challenges, negativities, and pains. Go for the medal, don’t limit your success story this year. How far God will take you this year is already decided and it is by how much you want to go. It is my prayer that the Holy Spirit will unveil this better in your heart in Jesus name.
