Destiny Reporter




We are very aware that the Bible teaches us that the words we speak and the things we say are extremely important and have a big influence on our lives. We read:

Words kill, words give life, they’re either poison or fruit—you choose. Proverbs 18:21 (MSG)

We end 2017 with gratitude and thanksgiving and welcome in 2018 declaring the following confession over the year ahead.

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord. I believe in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, who is God with me, God within me. The Holy Spirit has been given to me because Jesus died on a cross and forgiven my sins, he has imputed to me His perfect righteousness and, therefore, I know God is for me.

Because I have entrusted my life by faith into His hands, and my plans for the year ahead are laid at His feet, I anticipate the blessings of God into every area of my life this year.

In 2018 I will bear much fruit, by which my Father is glorified.

In 2018 I know that my God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory.

In 2018 I shall expect the favour of God to surround me as with a shield, just as His word declares.

In 2018 I will plan to give over and above, for the Bible teaches me God always gives seed to the sower.

In 2018 we expect God to open doors of opportunity for us as Destiny Church to expand the great commission and get the WORD out.

In 2018 we, the church, expect God to add buildings, people, resources and increasing opportunities for the task ahead.

In 2018 I extend by faith the grace of God over my family and loved ones, for their salvation and protection.

In 2018 I will choose to live by faith – daily – in the Son of God who loves me and gave Himself for me.

In 2018 I will not be fearful, or given over to stress or anxiety for the Lord who is my shepherd is with me.

In 2018 I expect to walk in divine health, and so find strength from God for all He calls me to do. And pray for those who are sick and need to be healed.

In 2018 I will dwell habitually in God’s house the church, where there is divine covering, comfort, wisdom and protection.

In 2018 I determine to share with any, and all, this comforting hope and reassuring love I have found in Jesus.

In 2018 I will be ready to receive the all, and the many, that God will send our way.

In 2018 we will find more ways to help the poor, share what we have and be a positive resource near and far.
In 2018 we determine that this light Jesus has placed within us will shine brighter, even as the world gets darker.

In 2018 I shall expect the supernatural, divine interventions of God in my life.

In 2018 I declare with absolute confidence JESUS CHRIST IS LORD.

BOLD is a movement of students and young adults taking the knowledge of Christ everywhere they go. Come and be part of this movement – we would love you to join us!

God is moving in the lives of those who are involved in BOLD. As I spend time with them I am seeing remarkable things as they walk with God and grow in a bold way. One girl I spoke to recently prayed for a person who was in a coma and they came out of it straight away. Some are preaching for the first time, others are doing street outreach and leading folk to Jesus. They are seeing healings, miracles, provision for houses and flats as well as jobs that release them to kingdom work and ministry.

I am finding unity and creativity, new ministries erupting with power and vision. I love that it is not just to help themselves – many are reaching those in need as part of the homeless street outreach. New people are joining BOLD and are passionate in worship and hungry for truth. They’re acting boldly in response to the pain, hurts and injustice they see around them. This is a people I am deeply encouraged by and these are the folk sitting next to you who are still figuring stuff out, still need a hug or a home cooked meal once in a while.

BOLD is a church moving generationally.

Would you like to be part of this awesome movement? If so, come and join our monthly services (next one takes place on Saturday 13th January at 6pm). We also meet weekly on Wednesdays in the city centre and the west end of Glasgow. For more details, visit our website Alternatively, if you would like to speak to me about BOLD please call the church office 0141 616 6777 and the team will connect you to me.
