I have shared this message before here. Ever since I have heard this message, I usually watch it every new years eve but this year something has prompted me to watch it sooner and I thought I would share it with you all again.
This message is so powerful and is a good reminder of many things. Take a listen.
So with each year I get a new word from God it is kinda awesome. Here are my words so far…
God has used these words and taken them farther and deeper than I could have ever imagined. This time when I watched/listened to this sermon I thought for sure I knew what the word the Lord was giving me for 2017. He pressed this on my heart recently. I wrote about that here. You know I thought my word was going to be Deeper and I could have foolishly assumed without asking Him.
Thankfully I didn’t. Thankfully I asked. I waited and you know what He said….
So my initial reaction was Lord… you know … surrender is a big word. I think I like deeper better. Deeper can be part of surrender. Surrender can go so many different ways, surrender has multiple definitions….
