ACTIVATING THE ADAR MENTALITY
Monday, 04 Adar, 5778 = Monday, February 19, 2018
“The end of a thing is better than its beginning” (Ecclesiastes 7:8).
The sounds of Adar prompt us to review the past with a view to evaluating the present. They motivate in us a powerful desire for:
• Finishing the year well with grace and glory
• Completing the given cycle of time with abundant joy
• Celebrating the past in preparation for a fresh future challenge
• Appropriating the complete blessing deposited at the source of the year, that is, at Rosh Chodesh Nisan
• Preparing the ground for successfully going through another annual cycle with hope
• Reviewing the past for the purpose of ensuring a better future
• Projecting into the future with the benefits of informed hindsight
• Planning the next yearly cycle with reasonable foresight
• Prophesying about the future with accurate and in-depth hindsight
Daily Devotional Monday 19th February 2018 by Steve Ogan – Activating the Adar mentality
Anyone with an Adar mentality must seek to finish any given year well with grace and glory. Such a person must evaluate the past with a view to ensuring a better future. He or she must project into the future with the benefits of informed hindsight and reasonable foresight.
Anyone with an Adar mentality will naturally have the finishing anointing. Such a person can do in one month what he may not have been able to do in one year. There is a sense of urgency implanted in him. There is a desire to accomplish set goals and passion to end a given cycle of time on a high and holy note.
1. PRAY THAT AS PEOPLE BEGIN TO ACTIVATE THE ADAR MENTALITY THEY WILL INCREASE ON EVERY SIDE: “For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited” (Isaiah 54:3).
2. DECLARE THAT THE CHURCH WILL EXPERIENCE DIVINE SANCITIFICATION IN THIS SEASON: “…For it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you” (Exodus 31:13).
