In December 2011, the Lord spoke to me about 2012, saying that it would be not only my year of prosperity, promotion and increase (financially and spiritually), but also a year of answered prayers, turn-around and “suddenlies.” Around that same time, I heard teaching about the favor of God that confirmed what God was telling me.
As the new year approached, I began decreeing out loud God’s favor and blessing over myself every day before leaving my house.
One day, I checked one of my credit card balances to see how much I needed to pay, and to my surprise the amount was significantly lower than what I expected. When I saw the entry that said “merchandise finance refund: $725.90,” I had to leave my desk at work and run to the restroom, where I could shout and thank God for His favor in my life.
I believe that this blessing is just the first of many manifestations that are coming my way not only in 2012, but also in the following years. I have determined to walk by faith, to stand on the Word of God, and to dare to believe God.
I am expecting to be debt-free in 2012, and I believe that my God is well able to do that for me.
