I did a Google search.
And found [the most relevant] 19 incidents in the Bible.
That seemed like a lot to me AND it gives me great hope. Listen…
Exodus 32.14 So the LORD changed His mind about the harm which He said He would do to His people.
Amos 7.6 The LORD changed His mind about this. “This too shall not be,” said the Lord GOD.
Jonah 3.10 When God saw their deeds, that they turned from their wicked way, then God relented concerning the calamity which He had declared He would bring upon them. AND HE DID NOT DO IT.
So, IF God Himself can change His mind, then surely He is able to change mine!
Back in November I began seeking my OneWord2018 – and I believed diligent was it. Then, I sensed steadfast. Then, Truth. Great words. Great principles to focus on, especially for a writer (my greatest goal is to be a diligent and steadfast Truth writer). I trusted that I had heard God (and I DID) for these to be my 2018 words. I even wrote about them last week.
Then, this past weekend my friend Mei (pronounced May) posted this on Instagram and announced her word for 2018 was seed.
It was a lightning-from-heaven moment for me.
You see, in September I wrote REAP on the chalkboard in the kitchen – I didn’t change it for Thanksgiving or Christmas. REAP remained. When I read this post by my friend Mei, it was like the Lord hit me with His soft-as-a-feather hammer on my thick-as-steel head!!!
I believe with every holy cell in my body that my husband and I are in a season of REAPing. So I am going to stand firm on that.
We have spent years and years and years of sowing good seed into good ground and now we shall see the harvest.
We are REAPers. And, NOT grim ones – we are holy, sanctified, spirit-filled REAPers.
We are standing and believing.
OneWord2018 is changed!
