    A Year of Blessings
    And Supernatural Provision

    by Bonnie Jones

    This is a year of supernatural provision and a season of trusting in the Lord for all our needs. There’s supernatural provision available for all who believe. This is a season of believing for the miraculous; believe and receive. In the heart of all mankind lies belief. Some have selfish motives while others are pure. To those who know their God and believe Him to be their Deliverer they shall receive a double portion. They have learned to trust Him in all situations.

    But the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. (Daniel 11:32b)

    I heard the Lord say; “I’m delivering manifold wisdom to the body of believers. Many believe in Me yet they fail to trust Me. There is a big difference. If you trust Me you will believe and I shall deliver that which you ask for in faith. They go hand in hand. Now this day observe as I deliver two-fold to the body of believers.”

    I also heard the Lord speak regarding this great nation of ours. He said,

    “Let the walls of despair come down in this nation.

    Let honor be restored to her shores.

    Let the fighting between brothers be restrained.

    Let joy and laughter once again be entertained.

    Let the Lord reign on high once again as school children sing out His praise.

    Let there be sanctity in the homes once again and prayer on the lips of all my saints. Amen.”

    Let me comment on these decrees.
     

    Let the walls of despair come down in this nation.

    Despair is a state in which all hope is lost or a feeling that everything is wrong and nothing will turn out well. I believe the enemy gradually invaded the minds and hearts of many Americans, bringing deception and causing them to believe falsehoods instead of gospel truths passed down by their forefathers. Gradually this great nation spiraled into moral decay.

    America was built on godly principals and moral ethics. Yet over time Her inhabitants chose to follow the dictates of their hearts instead of standing firm on the Rock of Her foundation; the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Because we called evil good and good evil and the truth of the Holy Word was thrown by the wayside and deemed unworthy our foundation collapsed. Over many years’ walls of hopelessness, depression, fear, and immorality replaced America’s walls of truth, justice, righteousness and morality. But I believe God raised up a people, who are called by His name, which are now in position to turn this nation back to God righteousness. They stand firm on the solid Rock of His salvation and fear not the enemy’s attacks. 
     

    Let honor be restored to her shores.

    Honor departed from this nation when we stopped fearing the Lord. This fact is evident in our schools, public halls and workplaces. We deem America to be a “Christian” nation yet are forbidden to say God’s name publicly. Chastisement is exercised against those who speak the Lord’s name unless it’s in vain. How far have we fallen? God gives grace to the humble but resist the proud. (James 4:6) Have we replaced the fear of God with pride and political correctness? Have we forgotten how to humble our self and pray?

    These people draw near to Me with their mouth, And honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. (Matthew 15:8)
     

    Let the fighting between brothers be restrained.

    No one person or people group is correct about all things all the time. The enemy continues to stir up strife among the brethren to keep them separated. It is only by the grace of God we can agree to disagree and remain civilized. God is far greater than all our problems; if we can only join together in unity and trust Him to guide us in to all truth. Americans must stand together for righteousness, justice and truth.
     

    Let joy and laughter once again be entertained.

    Today more and more Americans are fearful, anxious, depressed and even suicidal. The greatest reason for these conditions is “not knowing” the Lord. Therefore they have lost their hope and joy. There are many counterfeit joy makers such as drugs and alcohol but their affects soon wear off and greater depression and hopelessness occurs. Nehemiah 8:10 say that the joy of the Lord is our strength. It is only by placing our hope and trust in the Lord that we can truly be joyful in all situations. Remaining joyful in the Lord strengthens our spirit man and overrides grief, sorrow and wrong thinking every time.
     

    Let the Lord reign on high once again as the school children sing out His praise.

    William Jeynes, a professor at California State College in Long Beach and a senior fellow at the Witherspoon Institute in Princeton, N.J., spoke at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. on Aug. 13, 2014 about putting the Bible and prayer back into U.S. public schools. He stated that since 1963, there have been five negative developments in the nation’s public schools:

    • Academic achievement has plummeted, including SAT scores.

    • Increased rate of out-of-wedlock births

    • Increase in illegal drug use

    • Increase in juvenile crime

    • Deterioration of school behavior

    “So we need to realize that these actions do have consequences,” said Jeynes, “When we remove that moral fiber -- that moral emphasis – this is what can result.”

    Other facts included a comparison between the top five complaints of teachers from 1940-1962 -- talking, chewing gum, making noise, running in the halls and getting out of turn in line – to rape, robbery, assault, burglary and arson from 1963 to present. From CNS.NEWS

    The seeds of despair and moral decay began to unfold in June 1962 when prayer was removed from public school. It is my prayer that God would once again be acknowledged in public classrooms across this great nation and children would have the freedom to speak aloud about their Lord without fear of chastisement.
     

    Let there be sanctity in the homes once again and prayer on the lips of all my saints.

    There has been a tremendous assault on the American family. Divorce, broken homes, single parents, and same sex marriage/parenting are commonplace nowadays. Television, electronic devices, sports and entertainment have replaced family values. Eating meals together as a family is something of the past. Its’ eat on the run or fast food drive-thru because everyone’s in a hurry. In fact we live in such fast paced world we don’t even take time for the family to pray or read scriptures together. They don’t have time to glorify the one who made all things possible by shedding His precious blood for them. Is it perhaps time for the family to return to holiness? Is it time for them to review their standing with their Maker? Have we taught our children how to pray and honor God? Its’ not the quantity of time we spend but the quality. Let us all re-evaluate our lives and return to right standing with God.

    The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom, and before honor is humility. (Proverbs 15:33)

    2016 is a year of blessings and supernatural provision! And I believe God wants to bless us more than we can ever imagine. I believe it grieves His heart that as a nation we have fallen so far into despair and rejected Him in so many ways. However, there are those who have learned to trust and obey Him and follow Him no matter the consequence. They are not politically correct; instead they are steadfast in His love. They have stood on the walls of justice, righteousness, truth and morality and cried out to God for this nation according to 2 Chronicles 7:14.

    If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

    God makes it very clear that it’s Christians who must humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways. They are the ones called by His name. When you become a Christian, not only do you take on His name, you take on His divine nature by walking in love and communing with the Father. I believe the body of believers has been crying out to God for many years and He has heard their plea. The body has turned from her wicked ways and is now adorned with His love, mercy and grace. Now is the time of recompense as they receive a two-fold portion. Be prepared to stand in awe of the glory of God as supernatural provision is released to those who believe and trust their God.
