2020…Love Like Jesus! Expect Gods Blessings!!
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14
Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:18-19
That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Ephesians 4:22-24
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Psalm 51:10
Go to now, ye that say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanishth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. James 4:13-15
It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. Lamentations 3:22-24
No matter what 2019 brought into your life… Blessings or trials… Remember our God is good. His grace is sufficient. He has plans to prosper and not harm you. What a mighty God we serve who promises in Romans 8:28 to work ALL things for GOOD to those who love HIM. The Bible tells us our life is but a vapor here on earth compared to everlasting eternity. Do to others as you would have them do to you.
Jesus says… “Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also. And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” Matthew 5:38-44
Let brotherly love continue. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unaware. Hebrews 13:1-2
Love like Jesus this upcoming year. Be a blessing to others!
Remember that God has a purpose for everything that touches your life… Thank God for the blessings and trials! Sometimes, His greatest blessings come through trials.
Lord, I thank you for this past year, I thank you for all the blessings and trials that have brought me closer to you…My King. For opening my eyes and heart to YOUR truth. Behold, YOU spring a new thing, You make rivers in the deserts and a way in the wilderness. I am so excited to see what my future holds because I know who holds my future…YOU LORD HOLD MY FUTURE! HALLELUJAH!!
2020 expect Gods blessings! Happy New Year!
“BECAUSE I KNOW WHO HOLDS MY FUTURE… LIFE IS WORTH THE LIVING JUST BECAUSE HE LIVES!”
