The start of a new year

In the twenty-seventh year,in the first month on the first day, the word of the LORD came to me:(Eze 29:17)

In the twenty-fifth year of our exile, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth of the month, in the fourteenth year after the fall of the city--on that very day the hand of the LORD was upon me and he took me there. (Eze 40:1)

It is the start of a new year. And although all days are significant to God, I feel a rise of expectancy and faith for good things from the Lord this year: a year of a move of the Spirit of the Lord and great fruitfulness. Whatever your expectation, there is no better way to start the year than like Ezekiel: knowing the hand of the Lord on your life and hearing and responding to his word.

You are right Chris, its going to be a great year! - especially I believe for the UK as we see an increased outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our lives, in the church and overflowing into our communities.

Be Blessed in 2006, Gavin

Amen to that! we have already had a great start with the appointing of a new elder at our church. Moreover, God spoke to 'confidently expect' this year. indeed, this year is going to be an amazing year in the things of God!
