2020 has been an exceptional year and one which will be remembered for centuries to come, as the year when the entire world experienced a pandemic. Despite what has happened in this year, God is not silent and continues to speak concerning his people. There has been a major shift in 2020, in our culture, economies, politics, international relations, national security and on issues regarding race and equality.
In the midst of great difficulties, has arisen greater opportunities as people with creative ideas have risen to the occasion to develop solutions to answer problems. We have witnessed innovators who have introduced new ideas and products and the internet has been used in ways that we never thought possible. Fix your lenses and take your gaze away from the news because their predictions have never been more inaccurate.
God taught us in this year how to harvest during the famine. (Genesis 26:12-14) We also learnt how this global shift has set the scene for a great wealth transfer. (Proverbs 13:22) God through his power and might has given us the strength and strategies to drive out many giants from our Canaan land of promise. And we are poised to go forward and take possession.
Like Joshua, we stopped to acknowledge and mourn the passing of some precious loved ones. We are comforted that they are at rest in the sweet by and by and we will see them again when we cross over to the other side.
Now we get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land that God has promised us. (Joshua 1) We are poised to subdue kingdoms and to bring every place where we have been sent under the authority of Jesus Christ. “Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses.” (Joshua 1:3)
