One way to begin with God and to have the most fruitful and fulfilling year is by engaging in prayer of enquiry.
SCRIPTURE: And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. Acts 9:1

Happy New Year! You are welcome to the year 2021. In this New Year, God shall do new things in your life in Jesus’ Name (Isaiah 43:19).
Today, being the first day of the year, 2021, it is very important to begin the journey of the year with God in order to know and walk in His purpose for your life. God knows the end of a thing from the beginning because He is the Beginning and the End (Rev.22:13).
Now, one way to begin with God and to have the most fruitful and fulfilling year is by engaging in prayer of enquiry. This is a situation where you ask God specific questions at the place of prayer and you trust Him for definite answers. This is my usual practice at crucial points of my life.
Many years ago, I was at a junction of life. My wife and I had different great opportunities and openings. We had offers to the United Kingdom for further studies in Medicine and probably to practice there. In fact, at that time, there were about three different openings.
So, I decided to wait on God for three days in prayer and fasting. I asked Him, “O Lord, what do you want to do with my life? I have several openings, which direction do you want me to go?”
As I prayed, I didn’t hear anything from the Lord the first day. Then in the evening on the second day, God began to speak to me: “The time for the call that I have been talking to you about has come”. He asked me to come to the city of Abuja and also gave me further details concerning the Ministry.
Beloved, we have the God Who gives direction. If He doesn’t speak to you through the inner voice, He will speak to you through dreams, visions or revelations.
My counsel is, begin with God this year through prayer of inquiry to know what He wants you to do with your life.
Remember this: One way to begin with God and to have the most fruitful and fulfilling year is by engaging in prayer of enquiry.
- Make up your mind to find out from God His plans for your life and destiny this year.
- Take out some days to be alone with God to know His mind for your life.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You draw me closer to Your Presence. I ask for the revelation of Your purpose for my life this year, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Be very sensitive. Do not take spiritual signals for granted. Many people do not know what we call a burden for prayer. If you find yourself in the midst of people and all of a sudden, you feel like moving aside to pray, move! Culled from “15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr Paul Enenche.

AMAZING FACT: At birth, baby kangaroos are only about an inch long – no bigger than a large water bug or a queen bee. But the wonder of growth makes them big animals.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: The Lord bring clarity to you regarding the year ahead of you. It shall be well in Jesus’ Name.
