31 Days December 2007 Count Down - Day 31

The 31st of December 2007!!!! Someone shout out in praise!!!! God by His grace has pulled us through. We are on the verge of stepping into a New Season, a Brand New Beginning. Thank you Jesus!


Today, 31st December, the last day of the year, Wonderful Lord, I am simply thankful that you have brought me this far! For seeing the end of 2007!! Woohooo!

I am thankful that you have been the constant force to be recokned with, in my life, throughout 2007! I am thankful that I am about to walk into the reality of a New Beginning you have mapped and shapped out for me. I am excited about the possibilities the unexplored territories!
I am thankful that I am about to embrace the reality of a New season, wrapped in the essence of you!
I am thankful that I am at the edge of another Year, a day at a time, in your will! Thank you Jesus!

I am thankful for all the battles I fought and won in 2007! And How I have come out stronger than ever before! Thank You Jesus!!
I am thankful for all the victories I now proclaim, all to the glory of your name! This is my reality of 1 Corinthians 15:57 "But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Father Lord, this month, we your people lay down our thanksgiving, offering and praise at your feet. We raise our voices collectively and say a big THANK YOU for 2007! We are thanking you and embrace the reality of Psalms 50:14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High. !

We give thanks to you our God, for you have been good to us, you have shown us mercy and love. Wonderful Lord, for an awesome year, we say THANK YOU!

Dear Father, we give you thanks and we praise you for we know that it has been by your power that we have made it through 2007!!! Lord we proclaim your greatness, your wealth, your power and your majesty as explained in 1 Chronicles 29:11-13 "Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name."

So today, dear Lord, as we walk into the era of New Beginnings, we place our collective offering at your feet, we thank you for all you have done for us, what you are doing and what is yet to come! We thank you for your presence in our lives. We thank you for Jesus, for the power in His name, which we as your children are previleged to use freely!
We thank you for everything you have given to us in this life time, our families, our loved ones, our friends. We thank you for our jobs, for our gifts. Lord, we simply THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!

Wonderful father, we pray that our thanksgiving and praises throughout this month, is acceptable in thy sight. We pray that it emits a sweet smelling fragrance to the heavens. We pray that you are glorified, honoured and praised through all our small efforts; for you deserve so much more!!! Lord, be glorified!

Beautiful people, we have made it, we have seen the end of another year! All praises and glory be to God.

In this new year, we are stepping into, I want to encourage us all to make it be all about God, all about Jesus, all about the Holy Spirit, all about the Trinity!
Make this year, be a year to:
Align yourself with God's will
Embrace the Holy Spirit's teaching
Make 2008, be a year living life for him
I encourage us to use our gifts to glorify Him
use our voices to honour Him,
Use our hearts to seek after Him
Use our body to honour Him
Not forgetting to embrace the power of thanksgiving and praise
Along the way, never forget to glorify God's holy name
Yes, there will be new battles to be fought and won
but remember, God has gone before us, so the victory is all our
we simply must walk in it's reality.

So peeps, on that note, what are you thankful to the good Lord for this very day, the last day of 2007?

Have a wonderful day, getting ready for your new beginning, getting ready to experience all that God has in store for you in 2008; getting ready to live out an awesome year, a day at a time in God's will.

Much Love
Remi Banjo
Raise your voices
sing out in praise
to the rock of ages
for this year, he covered us
in realms of his love
He gave us the victories
we now proclaim
all to the glory of his holy name
Present to him an offering
wrapped up in praise
For by His Grace,
we have won this year's race
