Praise the Lord of the Lord, for His mercies endureth forever. Who is like unto the Lord who have shown us love and brought us back from the land of the dead, where we were forgotten into His marvelous light. O praise the Lord, O my soul and forget not all His benefits.

Thank You Lord for yet another day in the land of the living. Thank You for waking us this morning into a new day; a new dawn; a new year; somebody shout Alleluia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beloved, we are in 2015, to glory of God and to the shame of Satan and his cohorts, whose plan is to short circuit our life and destiny but for the Lord. O God! Thank You for all the secret fight You fought on us and our families, glory be to Your Holy Name.

Beloved, a new dawn is here and we must position ourselves right to take the full delivery of what the Lord had planned for us. Don’t forget, “He daily load you with benefits”.

It is my pleasure to announce to you that in year 2015 “you are an overcomer”, you are coming out of that ugly situation in Jesus Name. All the weapons of war targeted at you by the enemies, the Lord Himself have promised to break it, give you victory and set you on high far above principality and powers.

Welcome to 2015, your year of “Supernatural victories” (Ps 37: 39-40. For the hand of the Lord will do great things wherefore you are glad.).

Therefore, rejoice, I say again rejoice, for the barren shall be with her own children (Isa 54:1-3); the wilderness shall become a fruitful field and fruitful field into a forest (Isa 32:15); He will place the lonely in families (Ps 68:6); Then shall thy light break forth as the morning and thy healing shall spring forth speedily (Isa 58:8)’ Now you are made whole; sin more (Jn 5:14); The step of a good man are ordered by Lord (Ps 37:23); His goodness will pass before us.

You will testify and early will the Lord visit you and confirm His Word in your life, family, business, career and ministries

Hitherto, the Lord was angry at us; thanks for the blood of Jesus that was shed on the cross that instead of wrath you and I will enjoy His love, for the Lord will not cast off forever:

           

“He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.” Micah 7:19

 

God never turns from His love, but He soon turns from His wrath. His love to His chosen is according to His nature, His anger is only according to His office: He loves because He is love, He frowns because it is necessary for our good. He will come back to the place in which His heart rests, namely, His love to His own, and then He will take pity upon our griefs and end them.

What a choice promise is this — “He will subdue our iniquities”! He will conquer them. They cry to enslave us, but the Lord will give us victory over them by His own right hand. Like the Canaanites, they shall be beaten, put under the yoke, and ultimately slain.

As for the guilt of our sins, how gloriously is that removed! “All their sins,” — yes, the whole host of them; “thou wilt cast” — only an almighty arm could perform such a wonder; ‘into the depths of the sea” -where Pharaoh and his chariots went down. Not into the shallows out of which they might be washed up by the tide, but into the “depths” shall our sins be hurled.

They are all gone. They sank into the bottom like a stone. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Is someone shouting alleluia this first day of year 2015. Because your victory is wrought by the hand of the Mighty Jehovah, nothing can withstand in His presence.

As we enter into a year, is good we remind ourselves the need to position ourselves well to receive the goodies of the year. As human we draw inspirations from varieties of things ranging from the supernatural to human, animals and birds of the air.

However, we will be considering the lifestyle and strength of a bird called “Eagle”. What are the qualities in this bird that make it daring to man, weather even in the storm, the bird eagle goes through it without a loss of wing.  Beloved, come along as we learn from this great bird:

 Eagles

If you are placing your hope in the Lord, then your life may resemble that of an eagle:

Eagles Love to Play with the Wind — They ride thermal updrafts to an altitude of 14,000 feet. The Golden Eagle can reach a speed of 180 miles an hour in a dive. “Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)

Eagles Travel Light — Their bones are hollow and filled with air: The 7,000 feathers on a Bald  Eagle weigh only 21 ounces. “Let us strip off anything that slows us down or holds us back, and especially those sins that wrap themselves so tightly around our feet and trip us up; and let us run with patience the particular race that God has set before us.” (Hebrews 12:1 – Living)

 Eagles have Keen Eyesight — They see eight times better than human beings. They can spot a mouse in the grass a mile away. “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” (Matthew 6:22, 23)

 Eagles are Focused — Once an eagle has spotted its prey, it does not take its eyes off the creature until it strikes. “This one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13b,14)

 Eagles Prefer Peace and Quiet when Raising a Family — They build their nests in high hard-to-reach areas. “Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life…” (1 Thessalonians 4:11a)

Eagles, Male and Female, Work Together Building their Nest or Eyrie — The arduous task takes several weeks to several months. “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!” (Ecclesiastes 4:9, 10)

 Eagles Keep Improving their Home — They continue to bring fresh green sprigs through the nesting period. Some think the sprigs are simply for decoration. “Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools.” (Psalm 84:5, 6)

 Eagles Fiercely Defend their Nesting — They stand up against any animal that might be a threat to their young. “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheepBe shepherds of Gods flock that is under your care, serving as overseers—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to beJesus said, Simon son of John, do you truly love me? He answered, Yes, Lord, you know that I love you. Jesus said, Take care of my sheep.‘” (John 10:11; 1 Pet 5:2a; John 21:16b)

 Eagles Mate for Life — An eagle takes a new mate only if its first mate dies. “A married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law of marriageNow the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife… ” (Romans 7:2b; 1 Timothy 3:2a) (adapted FOTM)

These nine qualities of the bird made it outstanding among other birds, what are picking along as journey through this year? You cannot afford to walk as usual, you must not only walk but you must also plan to walk smart.

Once again you are welcome to your year of “Supernatural Victory”

May the Lord show you mercy and lift His countenance upon you and grant you “Victory” all the year and beyond in Jesus Name. Amen! And by His grace we will remain a source of inspiration to you and to your love ones.

Remain blessed in the Lord
