It’s been over a month until I began to really catch the flavor of the New Year. Then it came to me still rebounding from 2015, that there must be zero tolerance in 2016 for some things that were allowed to take place in the past. Therefore, I am calling 2016 the year of Zero Tolerance for all things against God. Ironically, it is a year that we in the United States of America choose whose going to run for president in both political parties as President Barack Obama is in last year and in his last term in office. For many in America of African descent in recent years, a sense of pride has abounded having a Brother as the Commander in Chief. Yet, leadership this year must be spiritually grounded more so than politically or culturally for that matter emphasizing doing the next right thing.
The shift into 2016 was seemingly seamless but it was actually a dramatic shift.
2015 was such a seminal year in so many ways in that it captured an era which wholly represented the decade of the teens. Acceptable standards morphed from changes from a simpler time would have startled many of our ancestors as well many adults today who are perpetually reeling from the voracious evil, ever so present in society. Shifting standards make full proof that changes brought about by things out of your control make your existence necessary. Armed with the ability to calm the storm as you hold on to God’s unchanging hand in 2016 you have a God-given right to manifest the desires of your heart.
2015 brought great things to your door
but still the presence of your enemy’s torments was there too. Now in 2016 deliverance from the accuser the liar, the manipulator will altogether cease. In 2016, you have the authority to pull out a seat at the best table spread out with every good thing and sup. The devil will try to deny you so don’t believe the lie. You’re no longer subject to the foolishness of his taunts. In 2016, there shall be a complete snapping away of the ills that plagued you in the past. Because your future is uncertain when trusting God on the faith level, you have no other choice than to activate great faith in God this year. This commitment pleases God and the confidence that you place in Him shall extinguish any feeling of inferiority, peer pressure, doubt or stagnation. This year is the beginning of a new era so seize this moment, shake loose from things that ciphen your momentum and vitality.
Move forward in confidence and courage knowing that God has great things planned for you.
