It seems that nothing inspires people to make resolutions and promises like the beginning of a new year.   Have you already made resolutions? Do you have a plan for your success in those areas?  Is it based on your will power or on God’s power?  

A few months ago, as I considered the coming year the word “resolved” came to my mind  and I quickly jotted it down in my journal.   As I took a few minutes to ponder the word, it became apparent (at least to me) that  it should be the mission statement for the year 2008, Dominion and Authority. RESOLVED speaks to our God consciousness and reminds us that God gives us all we need to prevail, we must accept it and move into action.  Take a look:




Ordained by the

Lord and


Establish  His


As you walk in Dominion and Authority, keep in mind that God has and always has had the plan for your success.  Receive (accept) his plan and walk in agreement with him.  Be encouraged and know that sometimes the plan of God for your life will challenge you to step beyond your comfort zone.  Follow him.  Sometimes the plan of God for your life will be different than every one else’s or even what you imagined.  Trust Him.  Sometimes the plan of God for your life will open doors and present opportunities you never even considered.  Faithfully Obey Him.  Remember when you  follow his leading there is no end to your success, fulfillment, and joy. 

The year of Dominion and Authority is about understanding your identity, the power you possess, and faithfully moving into the action that brings glory to God.  Let this be the year that you accomplish more than you imagined by following the plan of God.  This year don’t just make resolutions be RESOLVED! 

Remember today,  “For  I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” Jeremiah 29:11 and “with God nothing shall be impossible.” Luke 1:37

Blessings today and always,
