How has your year been? Is it better or worse than last year? Every end of year is to be better than the former. Our lives are meant to be filled with goodness. This article expresses how to end the year with the best part of blessings.
Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness – Psalm 65:11 (KJV)
We really need to put in our best to get the best out of anything. A wise man said, “Put in nothing and you will get nothing”. For us to enjoy any end of year with goodness, we must have put in our own share of work, skill, diligence, love, studying, and wisdom practices, etc. But you must understand that it does not depend totally and only on your effort.
The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; not of him that wills, nor of him that runs, but of God that shows mercy.
God is the ultimate authority to reckon with if you are to end the year with goodness. You need His seal on all your efforts and inputs. No matter the state of affairs with you presently, God’s touch will drop fatness. Nothing is impossible with God, only believe.
So, how far have you gone in preparation to enjoy the best part of this year now?
- What would you want to see happen realistically before the end of the year?
- What does God say about it in His word?
- Do you believe it?
- Have you asked God for it?
- Are you declaring it?
- Do you believe God enough to thank Him for the answer before you see it?
Your answers to above questions give a picture of the amount of goodness you will enjoy this end of year.
May be you have believed God for a particular thing, and you have done your own part of the responsibility, (diligence, faith, love, obedience, etc.) or you heard a promise from God to do a particular thing for you, but you are yet to experience it. I have good news! It is not late yet!
- Remind God of what He said (in His word) concerning that issue
- Be persuaded that what He said to do, He will do
- Continually declare this promise aloud
- Thank Him for the answer yet to be experienced
I assure you that God will manifest Himself in your life.
In 2010 January, I asked God to make me a mother, having waited for some years to experience motherhood. And I heard God say that He would remember me that year. So, every day I thanked God that He would remember me that year. Months passed and I still believed and thanked God that He would do as He said. I was persuaded that if I Heard God then He would do it.
In November 2010, I heard Him again say that He would remember me that month. I continued to thank Him that He would remember me that month. When I saw signs of my monthly period, I reminded myself and God of what God promised. I held on to the promise and the signs stopped. Nine months later I had my baby. God is faithful.
God crowns the year with His goodness and His paths drop fatness. Key in today and You will end the year with goodness.
