Moving Forward in 2018!

"Moving Forward!"
Day Two: Psalm 118:25 "Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity."

Well, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year holiday festivities are behind us and for many its time to get back into the "rhythm" of our everyday lives. This can sometimes cause some to have the "post holiday blues" and end up in the "dumps" when we should be "moving forward". Most Bible scholars believe that the 118th Psalm was written by David immediately after he "actually" became King of Judah. Remember, David was anointed for "kingship" early on as a young man, but he had to endure a series of tests, trials, and afflictions before he could step into his destined role. After officially assuming his duties as King, David prays to Lord for two things that would enable him to move forward.

First, David asked the Lord to "save now". In essence, what David was requesting was for the Lord to give him victory and deliverance in his new endeavors as King. As we begin this new season, we must not forget that with every "new level" there are "new devils." We know not what challenges, obstacles, hurdles, or valleys which lie ahead of us in 2018, but we can pray to God in advance to grant us victory even before we encounter the inevitable. 

Secondly, David asked the Lord to "send now prosperity".  The Hebrew word for prosperity in this instance is "tsalach" which means "to advance, to make progress, or to break out in success." What David was really asking in layman's terms is "Lord, I need you to push me forward in this new season!"  What does that mean for us? It's time to get down to business, Kingdom business! It's time to move forward with God's agenda for our lives, starting today! Our God was gracious enough to carry us into 2018, now let's trust Him to empower us to do something with it!
Devotional Prayer
Father, we thank you for graciously bringing us from our "next" into our "now" season. Grant unto us now, victory, deliverance, and success in every future effort, endeavor, and assignment in Jesus' name! We praise You in advance for appointing us as ambassadors to move Your Kingdom forward starting now! We declare that we are moving forward spiritually, mentally, physically, financially, and holistically in Jesus' name, Amen!
