MASTER KEYS FOR YEAR 2020
This is a new year, we need new help of God, new great things of God in our lives, families, ministries, businesses, careers and education. We need divine protection, we need healing of God, and trusting God for one or two things for this year. Some are trusting God to marry this year, some for one achievement or the other. All these are doors that need to open and the keys to open these doors in this year is what I want to share with you: 2 MASTER KEYS FOR YEAR 2020
FIRST MASTER KEY: SEEK TO PLEASE GOD FIRST
Our first priority this year, our first responsibility, our first ministerial activity this year is to please God first in all things. Our first and greatest spiritual weapon this year onward is not fasting and prayer, not speaking in tongues or quoting scriptures against forces of darkness, but this first and greatest spiritual weapon is PLEASING GOD in all things – with our ways of living, characters, how we relate with people, in truth, sincerity, righteousness, decency, in confessing to God and men, in opening up what we have been hiding all these while, in facing the restitution we have been postponing, in seeking to please God in all things FIRST and foremost.
Why are you seeking to please men before God? That must God this year! Why are you considering what people will say, how they will feel, if they will be happy with you before you please God? That is the reason you living to please God fully, that is the reason you still in sinful condition, that is the reason you have not opened about that matter or done the needed restitution?
Do you know that many of these people you seek to please that make you not to do the right things, not to please God, not to live holy life and serve God; if you die today, many of them will be too busy to attend your funeral burial let alone following you to the gate of heaven to face judgement? They will not be there for you when powers of darkness rise against you in your dream at night, so why do you care to please the world with your living, with your dressing, your ministry and not pleasing God who will always be there for you on earth and in eternity?
That must change this year onward, even today. Today is the day of your salvation and rededication and total pleasing God first and forever. Amen
1 Thessalonians 4:1, “Finally then, brethren, we urge and exhort in the Lord Jesus that you should abound more and more, just as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God.”
SECOND MASTER KEY: SEEK THE WILL OF GOD FIRST
Do not do anything this year without seeking the will of God on that thing, no matter how small, without knowing God’s leading. Don’t be led by your own wisdom, no matter how smart, don’t be led by majority, by your pastor, your parent, your boss, your spouse, your friend, without knowing God’s direction.
You don’t want to suffer loss this year, you don’t want to miss God’s plan and blessing for you this year, then commit your ways to God’s hand and let Him lead you. Do not jump into any opportunity without seeking God’s will. Don’t go into marital relationship without confirmation of God’s leading and approval, don’t relocate without being sure of God’s leading even if you get free visa or fine job, don’t change career or job or even apartment without God’s leading.
Brethren, “Suffer No loss” is not just by mouth or claiming, it is by following God’s leading step by step. No matter how pleasant, profitable or perfect that decision or thing is, first seek God’s face to lead you and follow His leading for your life no matter what He says, He know the best and He has the best for you this year!
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall [b]direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5,6.
Beloved, make it your spiritual goal this year to grow in the Lord and to know how to know God’s leading and speaking to you, and how to discover and be sure of God’s leading for your life. It is very important, so we don’t live in confusion and uncertainty of what God want us to do. Make it your prayer point.

God bless you, and have a wonderful year!
