A New Year--A New You
Top Ten Things you will not have to worry about in 2013:
1. The Bible will still have all the answers.
2. Prayer will still work for every situation.
3. The Holy Spirit will still move.
4. God will still inhabit the praises of His people.
5. The name of Jesus will still be powerful.
6. There will still be singing of praise.
7. God will still pour out blessings upon His people.
8. There will still be room at the cross.
9. Jesus will still love you.
10. Jesus will still save the lost.
We know God is for us as we let go of 2018 and embrace 2019. God has great plans for each one of us. We have a future. We have a hope. We hold on to Jesus every step, we will take in this life.
As we are entering a new year, 2019 let us look forward. As we look back at 2018 and wave "goodbye," let us embrace the good and let go of any bad. Taking the good into 2019 is what we have to do, as we learn from any bad we may have faced. We have planted seeds in 2018 and now we are right at the threshold of the new. We need to believe 2019 will be a year of blessings, increase, and what you have planted will have a great harvest. It will be a year of standing strong and pressing forward. It will be a year of not being afraid of man, but be in awe of God and His power.
Let's start today by looking back at this past year of 2018 and all that God has done. We look back not to bring discouragement, but to see where we have come and where we are going. It is good to evaluate and take assessments of where you are so you can prepare and plan for where you are going. 2018 is in the books.
We can't rewind -- much as we'd like, we can't go back and correct anything we did or didn't do. But we can reflect -- and evaluate -- if we're wise, make change.
When we are given a new beginning, or a new year, we need to embrace
it. It is a gift from God. Embracing the new often means we need to let
go of the old. Before we do, let us take a look at this past year (2018)
and rejoice at the good, the bad, and maybe even the ugly!
Reflect - Make Change-Evaluate
Point I. We reflect on all that has happened in 2018 in our life.
Are you the same spiritually as you were a year ago, or have you developed a deeper relationship with God?
Point II. Use Godly wisdom when making choices for your life.
If you don't have a new year's resolution, I have one for you.
Read the book of Proverbs everyday for 2019.
Point III. We evaluate where we are today.
Are you happy where you are in life?
Point IV. Change Your thinking and viewpoint.
In this new year, which God has given, if you want to have different results, you must plan differently.
