"Surrounded by God's Goodness!"
Day One: Psalm 65:11 "You crown the year with Your goodness, and your paths drip with abundance." As we celebrate the dawning of a brand new year, The Year of Abundance, we are grateful that God has afforded us another opportunity to partner with Him in the advancement of His Kingdom on the earth. The word for day states that God has "crowned" this year with His Goodness! The Hebrew word for "crowned" means "surround or to encircle for attack or for protection." Isn't it good to know that from the very outset of this New Year, our God already has this entire surrounded and encircled with His goodness. This means that whatever will come our way this year (good, bad, or ugly) our Father and our God has already surrounded this year and those of us that are in this year with His goodness. He stands ready to protect His interests (i.e. His children) and He will attack to defend His own!
Also, the Psalmist declares that God's paths are dripping with "abundance" or "fatness". This means that as long as we allow our Father to lead and guide throughout this year, we then position ourselves to become recipients of the abundant blessings that drip from the overflow of His Divine presence! A great theologian once said, "Wherever God goes He leaves the tokens of His mercy behind Him and makes His path thus to shine after Him." Have a blessed day!
