Hi, Jesus loves you.
Hallelujah! The curtain is about to be drawn over this year! What would you remember this year for? How are you ending it and how are you entering the New Year?
In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you (1 Thessalonians 5:18, NKJV)
The end of a thing is better than its beginning; the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit (Ecclesiastes 7:8, NKJV)
You crown the year with Your goodness, and Your paths drip with abundance (Psalm 65:11, NKJV)
The preparations of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord (Proverbs 16:1, NKJV)
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” (Luke 2:14, NKJV)
What will you remember this year for?
A grateful heart will remember all the good things God did during the year, challenges notwithstanding. You must always remind yourself that if not for God, it would have been worse. If not for anything else, remember the breath in your nostrils. Hallelujah! A living dog is better than a dead lion.
It calls for thanksgiving and high praises unto God. The scripture says you should give thanks in everything, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Count your blessings and name them one by one and you will be surprised at what the Lord has done.
How are you ending it?
Are you ending this year in regrets, bitterness, anger and frustration or in joy and gladness of heart?
The year is not over yet; you still have a few hours left. The end of a thing is better than its beginning, so be patient in spirit, for God crowns the year with His goodness and His paths drip with abundance. You need to be expectant, your heart filled with faith and thanksgiving. Is there anything too hard for God? (Jeremiah 32:27) Surely, nothing is impossible with God (Matthew 19:26)
How are you going to enter the New Year?
Will you walk into the New Year expecting it to give you what it has? That won’t be wise, because as a wise man said, “life will not give you what you deserve but what you demand” If you don’t demand your share of God’s blessings from the year, you will regret what it will serve you. The New Year calls for high level of preparation in prayer and fasting, and in the word. You have to prepare before God will answer you (Proverbs 16:10).
Where do you place Jesus Christ?
The place of Christ in your life determines what will come to you. When Jesus is the Lord over your life, your life will be full of peace, for He is the prince of peace (Isaiah 9:6). Let Him enter the New Year with you as your Lord and the year will speak peace.
Start off with Jesus this New Year, continue with Him and the year will deliver to you what you deserve.
HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Grace and peace of God be unto you.
