The new year brings promise, favor, blessings, and a deeper relationship with our Lord. It doesn't matter how the year 2016 went. It doesn't matter what is happening right this very minute! Today, and every day forward has blessings!

Satan comes to kill, steal and destroy but Jesus came that we might have life abundant, to the full, till it overflows! (John 10:10) So, how do we participate in or get this abundant, blessed life? How do we get any or all of the promises that are in the living, active, powerful Word of God? We want all those promises for 2017 and it’s clear that they are already there for us:

*Ps 5:12 blesses us and surrounds us with favor
*Romans 8:32 “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?”
*John 10:10 life abundant, to the full, till it overflows
*Ps 103:3-5 the six benefits of God -1) forgives all iniquities, 2) heals all our diseases, 3) redeems our life from the pit, 4) crowns us with loving-kindness and compassion (beautifies and dignifies), 5) satisfies our years with good things so that our 6) youth is renewed like the eagles.
*All the promises of Deut 28.
*Healing, peace, joy, prosperity, power -1Peter 2:24, Isaiah 53, Ps 107:20, Matt 8:17, 3 John 1:2, 2 Tim 1:7, 1 John 4:4, 1 John 4:17, 1 John 4:4, Mark 11:23-24

Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” Notice that it does not say that satan has death and life in his power, no, it’s our tongue that does!

Our words affect every part of us and look at the second part of the verse, we eat the fruit of our words! Even science has proven their power!

Speak the Word! Speak it over yourself and your family. Claim what is already yours! Jesus said “It is finished!” because He did it all! Write down some of the above verses on 3x5 cards and speak them every day. Make them personal! Say the verse and then claim it as your own. 
“I have life abundant and am surrounded by favor! I’m favored with God and man!” 
“I can do all things and as Jesus is, so am I IN this world!” 
“I am what the Word says I am, I can do what the Bible says I can do and I have what the Word says I have!” 
“By His stripes, I AM healed and whole!” 
Find your power verses to start off this new year and speak them.

We speak words all the time and don’t give them any thought, much to satan’s liking! 
“You're killing me.” 
“My stupid foot!” 
“I’m sick” 
“I’ll worry about that later” 
“I have a …..” 
“Oh, my aching body” 
“What an idiot I am” 
“You look awful” 
“I don’t know how I go through my money so fast?” 
Well, you get the point. We do a lot of negative speaking and it should end now. Learn to tame your tongue! The year 2017 should only have positive words. If “If you say so” was attached to everything we say, it might cause us to stop and think before we speak. But, it really is “if you say so”, so say so! Say the Word! See yourself how God see’s you and speak it!

All the blessings for 2017,

  1. This is absolutely true - Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” Notice that it does not say that satan has death and life in his power, no, it’s our tongue that does!

    So often we like to blame the enemy, and though he does play a part in the war - We ourselves need to be on our guard too! WE are the ones that wave the white flag and surrender the battle because of the defeat we speak over ourselves. Truth truth truth.

    Amen to starting the New Year off with this truth <3
