Do you have a Bible verse or “one word” for the new year?
At the end of each year, I take quiet time alone with God to pray about the upcoming year for God’s blessings, protection, and His presence with me and my family. I ask Him for His guidance and direction, and a Bible verse for the year. A couple of years ago, I heard from other entrepreneurs online about getting a “one word” or a “theme” for the year.
When I begin hearing a word or a scripture more than once, I know that God is speaking to me. He often did this in the Bible, to emphasize His point to His [usually willful, stubborn!] people.
Recently, I began seeing the words “pivot” and “pivotal” frequently, and I knew God was speaking to my heart. I believe these are my “words” for 2015, and that 2015 is a pivotal year for God’s people.
The definition of pivot is “the central point, pin, or shaft on which a mechanism turns.”
The definition of pivotal is “of crucial importance in relation to the success of something else.”
I believe God also gave me the scripture John 20:16, The Message, for 2015:
“Jesus said, “Mary.” Turning to face Him, she said, ‘Rabboni,” meaning “Teacher.”
In 2015, I believe we need to pivot – to turn around and face Jesus, hear His still small voice, and then go and tell others everything He is saying to us.
I share more about this word pivot/pivotal and this scripture in my video, which you can view by clicking here.
