THE YEAR OF STRATEGIC ALIGNMENT
“… For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “ plans to
prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a
future…” Jeremiah 29:11(NIV)
The Year of Transition will take us into 2023: The Year of Strategic
Align is a verb meaning “to bring into cooperation or agreement.”
Developing God’s strategy for our lives requires alignment with the right
sources, people, systems, and mindsets. The alignments we choose to
make will determine our outcome at the end of 2023.
As we look at the playbook/ blueprint outlined by Jesus in the Holy Bible,
we see that Jesus was very strategic in His ministry and partnerships. He
aligned himself with the people who would advance His purpose – they
were not perfect people, but they were part of God’s perfect plan. Jesus
was intentional in everything He did – the places He went, the homes He
visited, the friends He kept, the people He discipled, the people he taught,
the people He healed, the people He fed, and the life He lived.
This year’s fast will be a Daniel Fast, so we encourage you to consume
fruits, vegetables, grains, and drink water. (See Daniel 1: 8 – 16). A daily
Devotional Guide has been prepared for you with instructions for the fast
as well as a list of foods that can be consumed.
We will partake of communion at the beginning of the fast on Sunday,
January 1, 2023, and we will end the fast with communion on Sunday,
January 8, 2023.
On Friday, January 6, 2023, please join us for a Prayer Service: Breaking
the Barrier; Unleashing the Blessing, from 9:30 PM to 12:00 midnight.
Let us follow the example of Christ and be intentional about the alignments
we choose. Let us strategically align ourselves in the will of God to fulfill
We are anticipating the manifestation of God’s promises as we come into
alignment with God’s purpose for our lives over the next twelve months of
Stay blessed, and keep the faith!
