God Gets It All in 2012!

I'm singing my heart out to God—what a victory!...God is my strength, God is my song, and, yes! God is my salvation. This is the kind of God I have and I'm telling the world! This is the God of my father— I'm spreading the news far and wide! God is a fighter, pure God, through and through...Your strong right hand, God, shimmers with power...Who compares with you in power, in holy majesty, In awesome praises, wonder-working God?...

The people you redeemed you led in merciful love; You guided them under your protection to your holy pasture...You brought them and planted them on the mountain of your heritage, the place where you live, the place you made, Your sanctuary, Master, that you established with your own hands. Let God rule forever, for eternity! (Exodus 15 Song of Victory following the Red Sea Deliverance)

God led Israel. Delivered Israel. Established Israel. May His protection cover Israel now and forever more. May He rule the nations from Jerusalem. Those who pray for her peace are beloved of God. Those who love her prosper. Those who do not better learn to swim.

Our fate is irrevocably tied to the fate of Israel. America was birthed to be her ally. Without this relationship we risk becoming irrelevant to the plan of God. May the year ahead hold fast the bonds of friendship and comradeship between Israel and the United States. Our own prosperity depends upon it.

May His hand "shimmer with power" on behalf of those His heart loves. Those who are called by His name. On our behalf and yours. On behalf of our churches and families. May He show Himself strong in our generation.

We are "singing (our) heart(s) out to God" in 2012! God gets it all! Fruits, gifts, talents, music, money. His all His. We worship a GOD who exists in capital letters and our life in Him this year is going to be written in upper case.

We have those quiet moments the replenish our souls but we have an affirmation that this is a year for the Church to drive her sheep to market! To make a sling from her veil, pick up a smooth stone and sight in the enemy!

May 2012 be a watershed year for the Bride.

"Let God rule forever."

Wherever He is going we are calling, "Shotgun!"

May your New Year be ferociously blessed!

John and Kathy LaMantia
