In previous New Years messages, I have given words of warning about what’s going to happen in the world.  This year message will be slightly different.  We all know now that things in the world have taken a sharp turn for the worst so there’s no need for any more warnings about that.  It’s so unfortunate that this is the norm now.  Instead I’m going to share what God has for me in 2020.  I’m going to share my own personal New Year’s resolution.

I want the anointing of God like never before.  What is the anointing of God? The definition of anointing is: A Hebrew word mashiach (messiah) is “anointed”, which refers to a ritual of consecrating someone or something by putting holy oil upon it.   Spiritual anointing is accomplished by and through the Holy Spirit.

1 John 2:27  But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.

Luke 4:18  The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

2 Corinthians 1:21   Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us,

Spiritual anointing is the consecration given by God through the power of the Holy Spirit for service to God and for the purpose of bringing glory to God.  All children of God are anointed because of being sealed by the Holy Spirit at the point of salvation.  God anoints people in different areas to work for Him beyond salvation anointing and for an office or service to Him. We need this anointing to be effectual in our service to Him.  We must not work for Him on our own.  We need the anointing and we need the Holy Spirit in order to achieve what’s God will and plans for our service to Him.

My New Year’s resolution 2020

For me…my New Year’s resolution is:

  1. I need more of God’s anointing in my life!!! I want more of the Holy Spirit and His influence to flow from me like a damn breaking and pouring water out and touching those around me!!!
  2. John 3:30 Paul says… “He must become greater; I must become less.” I don’t want people to see me, I want them to see Jesus in me!  I am but a servant of the Lord.  I don’t want them to see and be impressed with Tanya Nemley!!!!  I want them to see, know and love JESUS!!!!! Drop the mike!
  3. I will lay on the ground prostrate before Holy God, my Father. I will submit myself before Him in surrendering my body, soul and mind to His will and His way in my life.  I will ask Him to forgive me for anything that’s not right in my heart. I will repent of any wrong doing.  I will ask Jesus to wash me clean.  I will say to the Lord…” master, I’m available to you and I’m at your service.  Please use me, my Lord and Savior!”  Yeah…a lot of I will’s, but good ones!

I want more anointing, less of me and to submit myself to the Lord so that I can be of service to my God!!!  I feel this is what God is saying to His children.  God could have taken us all home right after we accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, but God left us here to be a light, and beacon to shine in a dark satan controlled world.  But I see some people that are Christians have duct tape over their mouths and plastic wrapped around their bodies so that nothing about the gospel is seen or heard of in their lives. Basically, useless for the kingdom of God. Did we share the good news with just one soul? What a horrible day when one stands before God with nothing to show for anything, we have done for Him in our whole time on earth.

NEW YEAR’S 2020  Mathew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

(This is not a suggestion nor are they my words.)

Father God,

Please help all who read this to share the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ and help them to promote your kingdom.  Help them to let their light (which is you) shine to those around them.  I know this task is a hard one for many. But I know you have help available for us to accomplish this.  Help them to understand that this is very close to your heart. Thank you for sending your own son to us.  Thank you for all the love you have shown us.  Bless each person reading this today and in 2020.  We love you Father God!  In Jesus name Amen.
