Blessings For A New Year

 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting!
And all the people said, "Amen!" and praised the LORD. 1Ch 16:36

In response to the Word of God, I bless this new year of my life! 
Rather than dwelling on the past, I press on towards the mark of the high calling of Christ.
I am not a failure, but I am more than a conqueror in Him.
I have been redeemed from the curse of the law.
In Christ I am an inheritor of the blessing!
I declare that I shall receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Because I obey the Lord and submit to His rule,
I shall be blessed in the city, blessed in the country;
All that is conceived in me and birthed from me shall be blessed;
All that I put my hands to shall be blessed;
I shall be blessed coming in and going out.

Christ is being formed in me, and He is my hope of glory!
I shall be fruitful and multiply;
I shall take dominion over all the territory the Lord has given me.
I shall walk in the counsel of God rather than the counsel of the ungodly.
When I am persecuted or reviled, I will bless.
The words of life shall be on my tongue, and I will eat its fruits.

In Christ I am blessed, and my year is blessed!
My times are in His hands, and I put my full trust in Him.
I am saved by the Lord, by the shield of His help,
and by the sword of His majesty.
My enemies submit to me, and I shall tread down their high places.

I dedicate my life this year to the Lord for the Kingdom of God,
And it shall be filled with righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Those who I come in contact with will be blessed
by the indwelling presence of the Lord, so that He will be glorified.
