Regain: to get again; recover; to succeed in reaching again; get back to
As we embark upon a new year, I believe that our gracious Father is presenting to us a RESET button. This isn’t about resolutions. This isn’t about reaching a goal that solely depends on our willpower. No, this is about our God-given purpose on this earth that by grace we can carry out. Whatever you were assigned to do last year but for reasons known between you and your Creator, hit the reset button and begin again.
It’s not too late.
Don’t let fear rob you of what God already said was yours. Don’t wallow in the “what-ifs” of the year gone by. Don’t condemn yourself for not following through. Instead praise God for lessons learned. Thank Him for the wisdom and strength you have gained. Remember, He is a God of perfect timing. So while you may think you are behind schedule, you may find that you are right on time. Beloved, He already knew the path you would take, along with the detours and rest stops that came along on the journey.
Life may have delivered you a series of trials and setbacks that blinded you. Cry out to Him to help you see again. He is gracious to reveal what He wants you to do. Declare that this is the year of regaining your sight and you will succeed!
…And Jesus said, “What do you want Me to do for you?” The blind man said to Him, “Rabboni (my Master), let me regain my sight.” Jesus said to him, “Go; your faith [and confident trust in My power] has made you well.” Immediately he regained his sight and began following Jesus on the road. Mark 10:51,52 (emphasis mine)
The blind beggar in the book of Mark simply wanted to see. His simple request matched with His faith gave way to a miraculous healing. Your request to begin again and your faith in God will also give way to supernatural vision and direction. Hit the RESET button and set out to have a victorious year in Him!
