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

In Mark 5:25-34 we read about a woman who had a particular sickness for twelve long years. All those years she longed for healing. She ran to doctors. She had spent everything that she had to get healed but she could not get what she longed for. But one day she ran to Jesus and touched His garment. Immediately she got healed. As she ran to Jesus Christ, she received what she had longed for.

In John 5:5-9 we read about a man who had an infirmity for 38 long years. He had been in that condition for long time. Jesus knew his condition and so He came to him and healed him. After 38 years he took up his bed and walked. 38 years he could not walk or do anything by his own. But then when Jesus healed him, he immediately walked. He was waiting for a healing for 38 years and Jesus Christ who knew his condition granted him what he had desired for.

You might be expecting a healing for years. You might be expecting a miracle for years. Do not get discouraged. You will receive what you long for in this New Year.

I knew two young girls who had lost their father many years ago. On a particular day the father met with an accident and he died. The father was the only man who was earning in that family. The mother was not well educated and she was a house wife. As she lost her husband she didn’t know what to do. But then she had kept her trust in God.

At that time the elder daughter was studying in a private college and the younger daughter was studying in a private school. They are in need of the money as the fees have to be paid for their studies. No relatives came forward to help. As their father had an insurance policy they thought that the insurance money will come and it will be helpful to them to pay the fees and manage their life. But the money they had expected never came.

A case was registered in the court but then years begun to pass. They waited for years in prayer asking God to intervene. By then God met all their needs in some other ways miraculously. Both the young girls had completed their studies in reputed institutions by the grace of God. The elder one got married and even at that time they thought if they receive the insurance money it will be helpful but they have not got it.

Yet they continued praying. Finally after 9 years recently the insurance money was sanctioned to them. They waited for the case to end for so many years. They kept their trust in God and prayed. Finally God gave them their expectations. Today I believe that the money will be somewhat helpful to them to meet their future needs.

My dear young friends, you might be longing to receive a particular blessing for so many years but yet you might not have received that. It might be a promotion, a job, or any other blessing. You might be barren for years and you are longing for a child for so long. Today God is promising you that you will receive the goodness that you are longing for so many years. Whatever that you are longing to have for these many years, will be granted to you in this New Year. God will do that in your life and definitely you will receive His goodness.
