‘Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our character”’ – Genesis 1: 26
We started 2015 by putting anything in our lives that is not in order to order. 2015 was our year of ORDER. We fought the challenges that came with restructuring and the remaking of a better you. It was a necessary first step to living in our fullness and in the spirit of our Creator as we saw in the beginning of all things in Genesis 1:1: God created the heavens and the earth and set everything in order to honour Him and submit to man.
2015 has been a year of ORDER for all of us. We’ve all learnt our lessons; it is time to move on to the next level of our journey.
After God had set things in order for man in Genesis 1 and saw it was good, He gave man an image, a character in His identity by which he ought to live by. After the ordinance of order and setting things in motion in 2015, it is time to build our CHARACTER, piece-by-piece, through our thoughts, choices, courage, faith, and determination.
We cannot move on to the next level if we cannot lead in character because our destiny depends on it. As we enter into the new year, it is time to quantify our hard work and vision with our character. The character to dispense the image of God wherever we go; the character to get rid of unrighteous and unnecessary things; the character of diligence and perseverance; the character of humility; the character to forgive and move on; the character of transformational leadership; the character to till the ground like never before; the character to distinguish our weakness from our strength; and the character to manage the blessings and breakthroughs that are about to invade us.
Character is so important that it is the very foundation of all worthwhile success. It is what separates winners from losers. It is what we really are. It is our power!
In 2016, live in such a way that if someone spoke badly of you or what you represent, no one would ever believe it because you are so rich in character that your wealth of integrity speaks for itself.
2016 is our year of CHARACTER!!!
