The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners…, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. –Luke 4:18-19 NIV
Doing 2020 with God
Regardless of what took place in 2019, you can embrace a favorable 2020 with faith in God, abiding hope in Christ, and renewed energy through the Holy Spirit.
Take time to ask God to use the following Scriptures to speak faith, hope, and strength over your life. As you speak these truths throughout the year, you’ll see God’s promises of new life, new hope, and new fulfillments come forth!
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! (2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV).
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint (Isaiah 40:30-31 NIV).
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland (Isaiah 43:19 NIV).
But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me (Micah 7:7 NIV).
Faith upward! Hope onward! Love outward! May the favor of the Lord be with you!
Claim the year of the Lord’s favor! Taste and see that God is good. No good thing does He withhold from those who love Him.
Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; for I trust in You; teach me the way in which I should walk; for to You I lift up my soul (Psalm 143:8 NASB).
