Daily Reading- Matthew 7:7-8

Daily Devotional-

The verse from Isaiah 43:19 reminds us that He will do a new thing, he will make a road in the wilderness.

It reminds me in Matthew 7:7-8 that He encourages us to ask, seek and knock.

The start of the new year is one that encourages me to dream big and to pray big.

What are you praying for this year?

Is this your year for a breakthrough?

Was 2016 a bit of a wilderness year?

Lean on His promise that He will do a new thing for you.

How do we go about asking, seeking and knocking?

The start of the new year is one that encourages me to dream big and to pray big. Consider starting this year with buying yourself a new beautiful journal and a pen that you will love to write with. Treat yourself to a new journal and pen if you like.

Sit down in your favourite place with your new journal, pen and your Bible. Don’t forget to make yourself a nice tea, coffee or hot chocolate. Put on some worship music and turn off your phone. Start by thanking God for all that He did for you in 2016. Be grateful.

Write out a scripture that has spoken to you and then write out a scripture for 2017.  Spend some time with him and lean in and listen to His still small voice.

Then write out your desires for, ask Him to make a way and then go out seeking opportunities and knocking on new open doors.  Be open to new experiences.  Take a step of faith. Be brave.  Say yes to Him.
