We thank God for the gift of these great men of God and what God has been doing through them. Truly, these prophecies and watchwords from God are very valid and needed. But in the midst of all, you should still ask yourself, WHAT IS 2019 TO ME?
Jesus asked the disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” They gave different responses. “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
Jesus was still interested in their personal knowledge of Him and He asked, “Who do you say I am?” Eventually, when Peter said, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. (Matthew 16:13-20 -NIV)
Believers, get back to your drawing boards and let the Holyspirit reveal the heart of God for 2019 to you personally. You need a personal revelation to be able to run the race excellently. People have said different things about the year. But what exactly is the year to you? What personal knowledge of the year do you have? What word did you receive from God that is guiding you for the year? If you have none, i suggest you get back to your closet now!
Remember the word of God in Habakkuk 2:2, “And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.”
It is not too late to write your vision too. Your personal revelation will take you farther than a communal revelation. You can start now! The race of 2019 has begun already and some days spent but remember, “The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all.” (Ecclesiastes 9:11 –NIV)
