“He will show you a large room upstairs, furnished and ready. Make preparations for us there.” – Mark 14:15

We give thanks to God who has seen it fit to allow us to cross over into a new year. God is a faithful and loving father. He, who has brought you safely into the year 2020, already has great plans for you. He is the Alpha and Omega, He is aware of your beginning and your end, so rest assured God is totally in control. This New Year is furnished and ready for you. Twenty is a very significant number in the Bible. We read in the book of Genesis 31:38-41 that Jacob waited 20 years to be freed from the control of Laban, his father in law. In Judges, the children of Israel waited for 20 years to be freed from the oppression of Jabin, the king of Canaan. God had raised up Deborah and Barak and ushered in sudden deliverance through them. This is the year of deliverance. As you cross into 2020, every hold that the enemy has over your life will be broken in Jesus’ Name. 

As the verse declares in Mark 14, God has already furnished and prepared your year with sudden deliverance. ‘Suddenly’ denotes unaware and unexpected. God has some unexpected blessings for you in this new season. The powerful hand of the Lord is getting ready to deliver you. Just like in the book of Acts 2, it will come like a sound of the mighty rushing wind and fill your year with the supernatural move of God. It will come with sudden joy as every long term adversary will be put to shame. Days of sadness will turn to years of sudden joy. Make a commitment to yourself that this year you will be determined to lift up your eyes to the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. Indeed He who watches over you does not slumber nor sleep. Watch and see that the Lord is good.
