Healing & Gratitude for Christmas and throughout the New Year!
“Don’t worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks for what you have.”
Philippians 4:6 (ERV)
“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death, sadness, crying, or pain. All the old ways are gone…’ Look, I am making everything new!’”
Revelation 21:4-5 (ERV)
‘There is a divine current of healing energy flowing through me, healing me in ways that I may not be aware. My gratitude for its presence is revitalizing me, rejuvenating me, and restoring me, now and forevermore.’
Dear Prosperity Partners and Friends,
Happy New YOU in this New Year!
Last Sunday, we gathered and affirmed God’s Healing Presence active in our lives. With grateful hearts, we expressed gratitude for the events of 2021 and greater blessings in 2022. Then, last evening we gathered and promised to REVEAL the ‘New’ or ‘Hidden’ self that seeks to be birthed in this new year.
We agreed that we are in no way saying that there is anything ‘wrong’ with who we have chosen to be however, we are interested and intentional about allowing our greater potential to come forth in 2022. With deep appreciation, we embrace this new year and every possibility associated with it. We know, without a doubt, our best is yet to BE!
From a space of healing and tremendous gratitude for where we have been, but more importantly for where we are headed, we were reminded:
1. To choose love and release fear if healing is our desire.
Again and again, the angels depicted in scripture declared, ‘Fear Not!’ It is we who must accept that love always triumphs over fear and its offspring. Love heals. Fear, hate and prejudice cannot heal. They will only keep us hiding in the shadows, robbing us of our spiritual birthright to health, wholeness, and happiness. So, choose love in the face of fear. The love that you choose will choose you and heal
you. Try it!
2. It is the love of Christ, born anew in us, that heals fear and its offspring.
a. Brokenness ‘He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds.’ Psalm 143:3 (NCV)
b. Bondage – ‘We have freedom now because Christ made us free. So, stand strong in that freedom. Don’t go back into slavery again.’ Galatians 5:1 (ESV)
c. Hatred – “…[L]ove your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” Matthew 5:44 (NIV)
3. The consciousness of Christ heals you and with a heart of gratitude you exert:
a. Mastery in the face of the unknown or unfamiliar as did Mary, the mother of Jesus;
b. Authority to see who/what seems powerful as powerless, as did the Wise Men when they encountered King Herod;
c. Dominion to act courageously during times of uncertainty, like the Shepherds who left their flock and travelled to Bethlehem to see the Christ Child.
Grateful for what we have, who we have been, where we have been and for where God is leading us, we embrace this new year courageously and faithfully because God is with us, and all is well.
‘May the Spirit of Christ be birthed anew in us at Christmas live in us throughout this New Year. May we be healed of every sense of brokenness, bondage, and hatred. May God’s power of Mastery, Authority and Dominion, reign in us, in all ways, now and always. With grateful hearts we say,
See you on Sunday!
Seeing Tremendous Blessings for You in 2022,
