You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

I will satiate the soul of the priests with abundance, And My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, says the Lord."- Jeremiah 31:14

In this new year God is promising you that you will be satisfied with His goodness. In I Kings 17:8-16, we read about a widow in the city called Zarephath. She was a widow and she had a son. Her life situation was in a terrible state. She had only a handful of flour and a little oil. With that she knew that she could eat only for a meal and they could survive only for a while.
She was gathering the sticks to cook the meal and her plan was to eat and die. She had no hope about the future. All she had was about to end. She had no one to support her. She knew that she and her son were not going to live. She had no future in her sight. Her plan was to eat that one meal and die. But God’s plan about her life was different.

“…See, I have commanded a widow there to provide for you.” - 1 Kings 17:9

While that widow thought that she will die, God has already planned that she will live and also provide for Elijah in the future days.

Bible says in 1 Kings 17:15  “…she and he and her household ate for many days."

When the whole city had no rain and when other people struggled, the widow and her household was blessed by God. God’s plan about that widow’s life was greater than her own plan. God’s goodness filled her and she lived and also provided for Elijah.

My dear young friends, God says to you today that your life will be filled with His goodness.

I knew a girl who got married a year ago and her husband was working under a cruel manager who used to make his subordinates work very hard and take all credits to himself. That person was even more unfair to her husband just because they were Christians. He literally plunders all appreciation, appraisal and incentives of his team member because of this many had jumped into different company and her husband too longed to get into other company. At last on the month of May 2016, by grace of God he got a job in another company and that very day God has promised them from Haggai 2:19 “Is there yet any seed left in the barn? Until now, the vine and the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree have not borne fruit. ‘From this day on I will bless you.’” and also counselled them not to shift to the new job, but to stay where he was working and he will be blessed in that same place.
Her husband decided to obey God and stayed in the same company. Within two months, on the month of August as God has promised he blessed her husband with an increment of 25% from his actual salary. They were so astonished to see the way God blessed them with His goodness in their life. God hasn’t stop there, He also provided them 35% of salary as bonus for the Christmas 2016.  In years, this was the first time he was getting the bonus from the company as a team member. God met all their needs and satisfied them with His goodness as they surrendered themselves to God’s plan.

My dear young friends, as you surrender yourself to obey God’s plan, He promises you that He will satisfy you with His goodness. You have to understand that God has greater plans about your future. His plans are greater than your own plans. His plans will bring goodness and joy into your life. Holy Spirit says that this year you will receive the goodness that you long to have for so many years. This year will be a blessing to God’s people and you will be blessed.
