The significance of the number 18 in the Bible comes from its symbolic meaning for bondage. The number 19 denotes God’s perfect order in regard to His judgment in the Bible.
Saints, 2018 may have been a year of bondage for you and if that is the case, take heart because 2019 will be the year of perfect order for you. It’s time now to leave behind any semblances of being trapped, caught up, suffering at the hands of any person, condition or situation that became the burden of bondage. Determine to allow the perfect order of God to overtake you in the coming year.
Leave resentment for anything that was a negative force behind as well worrying specifically about things we can change and things we cannot change. When we worry, it ends up taking over our every thought leading us to captivity. Let that remain in 2018! And while we are at it, leave the failures too.
Saints, as never before, in 2019 let’s embrace God’s perfect order based upon His judgments and perfect love for us. We must know, accept and acknowledge that the Father loves us with an “everlasting love” and that it’s “not His will that any of us should be left behind” in any type of bondage.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Is.26:3
