Beloved. The LORD your God is in your midst, the Mighty One who saves.
This is a New Year for you and a new season. Shake off the old disappointments and failings. Leave them behind you, Dear One. Forget the past. Reject and cast down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of your God.
Bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. Renew your mind, My Child. Wash away the lies of the devil with My Life Giving Water flowing from My Throne of Grace. Greater is He who is in you, than he who is in the world. In your body, you carry the death of your Savior, so that MY LIFE may also be revealed in your body.
My Spirit is quickening your mortal body every day. You may feel pressed on all sides, but you will not be crushed. You may feel perplexed, but do not despair. Though persecuted, you will never be forsaken. The devil may try to strike you down, but you will not be destroyed.
I AM your Creator, your Healer, your Life Giver, your Abba Father. I AM in your midst.
I AM singing over you a new song. A song of new beginnings. A song of JOY and not sorrow, a song of LIFE and not death.
Join in with the angels, Beloved. Sing to Me a new song. For you I shall do wondrous things. My Right Hand and My Holy Arm have gained the victory for you.
I AM putting a new song in your mouth, My Child. Many will see and be amazed and will trust in your God.
See, I AM doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I AM making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. The old has passed away, Beloved, BEHOLD, the new has come!
