My December Essentials as a Person of Faith

Before I hit you with what I do and encourage you to be a part of it, I want to state that I am a Christian. Everything I share today will be delivered through the lens of a firm believer in Jesus Christ.

December is the last month; this means we are on a path to a new start. 

I firmly believe every great thing is a result of proper planning and investment. I see December as the time to start planning and investing in the new year.

Why is this important? 

  1. I am a spiritual being in human form. The closer I get to God, the more it becomes clear I am not just a pretty face.  There is more to life than continually pursuing money, fame, or luxury that I can’t take once I die. What is the point of gathering everything and showing off?

"For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his soul?" - Mark 8:36

"I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." - John 10:9-10 

  1. I am limited. Educational background, influential friends, and exposure can take me only so far. However, letting Jesus take the wheel is a guarantee that I can face tomorrow.  How great is it to be in partnership with one who knows the end before the beginning?

"I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness." - Isaiah 42:6-7

  1. He that fails to plan is planning to fail.  Planning is a thing most people don't do, and those who do fixate on their predictions on the possible results of their properly planned project. Very few people make their plans in partnership with God. 

"Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans." - Proverbs 16:3

  1. I hate stress. Why do I have to learn the hard way? Or make lots of mistakes, take losses before I finally get it right. With God, I am in for a smooth ride. It is only a foolish man who picks working hard over working smart.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." - Proverbs 3:5-6

Amidst the workload December places on me, I take out time to wait on the Lord. You will find me reaching out to the less privileged or bringing a smile to someone’s face, connecting more people to Jesus, interceding for the new year, and asking the Holy Spirit to be my driver throughout.

I have a podcast where I share my daily progress as I do my December work. You can check that out at the end of this post. I encourage you to visit my podcast daily till the 31st of December. I will be on there daily, sharing testimonies and sharing some of my discoveries with you.

Also, I encourage you to incorporate the prayer points below with the prayers you are already doing.

1. Mighty God, we ask for your will to be done now and all through 2021, in Jesus’ name. (Matthew 6:10).
