Let’s Do God’s Will in 2022 

What will we do in 2022?  It is a new day, a new time, and a new opportunity to see what amazing things that God has for us.  Old pain, challenges, mistakes, and failures can be put in the past while we contemplate our future. In the political realm, many are predicting a march towards a fascist state.  In the educational realm, many want to scrub history of anything that may be upsetting for some.  Our medical front line warriors and researchers are burning out because of COVID-19 while others argue it is all a myth, false flag, or big lie.  We really need to hear an answer from the Lord.


What should those who love the Lord do in 2022?  The Bible tells us that we must take this opportunity to seek the Lord while He can be found and call Him while He is near (Isaiah 55:6). We must tell everyone that God wants us to change our thoughts and actions to what He would want us to do (Isaiah 55:7).  


We have a mission to tell a sick and dying world that God wants everyone to turn around and come to Him (Acts 17:30) because He has a place for us in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6).  This year, we can use His scriptures when we fear, have doubt, are anxious, worry, or disobey God (Corinthians 10:4).  He gives us the answer. 


We must decide that this year we will obey His commandments, pray, study the Bible, and meditate His scriptures. We can ask God for His wisdom since man’s wisdom is what got us into the world’s horrific mess in the first place (James 1:5).   Everyone, let us seek God, listen for His voice, and do His will so that 2022 can be the best year that we have ever had.


Isaiah 55:6, 7

New International Version

6 Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near.

7 Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts.

Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon.


Acts 17:30 

New International Version

30 In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent.


Ephesians 2:6 

New International Version

6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,


Corinthians 10:4 

New International Version

4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.


1 Timothy 6:12

New International Version

12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.


James 1:5

New International Version

5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
