Revelation is defined as, a secret or surprising fact that is made known; an act of making something known; an act of revealing something in usually a surprising way or something that surprises you.

1 Corinthians 12:8 “To one there is given through the Spirit the message of wisdom, to another the message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit.”

Thinking of a topic to write about for the “New Year” was quite difficult. I wanted to open the year with the word “LOVE;” but God led me to write about something else. I must trust that his plan is the best.

So here we go……

In the New Year most of us are getting rid of the old and focusing on the new. It’s the time of year that we spend time reflecting on how we want our life to change as we move into the New Year. We tend to focus on setting new goals and establishing new resolutions. Common resolutions include:
• exercising more
• pursuing a dream or a project
• going back to school
• quitting smoking
• saving more money
• reading more
• finding a better job
• getting rid of unhealthy relationships
• serving more
• traveling more

Quick Question? Do you set new goals in the New Year? Do you create resolutions? Resolutions are good-if we commit to them. Historically, how successful have you been at following through with your New Year’s resolutions? Yearly, I create a list of resolutions. Some of them I accomplish and many of them are lost in the wind to find myself setting the same resolution year after year. How does this sound…almost every year; one of the resolutions that I have is the exact same resolutions for the previous year. This behavior is INSANE! I have been told that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. How can we produce different results if we are doing the same thing over and over again?

In writing this post, God led me to listen to Oceans by Hillsong. I was hoping that maybe the song would give me inspiration or a new thought to finish the post!

The chorus of the song is as follows:
Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

AH-HA! There it is instead of creating resolutions; I hope that you consider asking GOD for a revelation.

Ask GOD to communicate his truth to you.
Ask GOD to reveal himself in an extraordinary way.
Ask GOD to increase your faith.
Ask GOD to use you to be a disciple.
Ask GOD to do something so amazing in your life that you will KNOW it was him.

ASK the spirit to lead you to a place you have never been……not to a resolution; but to a revelation!

As in 1 Corinthians 12:8, the spirit will reveal to us wisdom, knowledge or both. The only way for us to receive this information is to seek GOD in everything we do. This year I am asking God for his revelation in my life.

I started this week concerned about this post; but God is so timely. Everything is in his perfect plan. I hope you enjoyed the post.

HIllsong’s song “Oceans” truly ministered to me I encourage you to listen as well.

(Read this petition daily)

Dear God,

This will be my year of honoring you in everything I do. I ask that I am able to touch, hear, see, smell, taste, and receive your instruction of knowledge and wisdom. Lord, please take me to a place that I have never been- so that I and others can witness your miracles. Show me your revelation for my life.

Lereca (Your Name)

Commit to the challenge. I DARE you.
