Is. 44:24 This is what the Lord your Redeemer who formed you in the womb says: I am the Lord who confirms the message of his servant and fulfills the counsel of his messengers; who says to Jerusalem: She will be inhabited, and to the cities of Judah: They will be rebuilt and I will restore her ruins.
Is. 45:2-5 I will go before you and level the uneven places, I will shatter the bronze doors and cut the iron bars in two. I will give you the treasures of darkness and riches from secret places, so that you may know that I, the Lord call you by your name! I am the Lord and there is no other God but me.
This is the year of new beginnings that will be built on a strong foundation. What I have for you cannot be placed on a faulty foundation. David said in Ps. 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart and put a right spirit within me.” God is doing some housecleaning in each of our lives-he wants to remove any obstacles that hinder love and holiness. He wants to redeem you from your past and rebuild you in his image. He’s going deep to break up fallow ground. This is in order to give you the treasures of darkness and riches hidden in secret places! He is summoning his army for battle and breaking through gates of iron in your life in order to free others in your path and his banner over you is love.
