Happy New Year!
New Beginning! Fresh Start!
I love the New Year because it signifies all that which is new and fresh.
It’s an opportunity to pray to God about your goals and allow Him to work on whatever He needs to work on in you.
As we have stepped into the New Year, I’d like to challenge you to maintain your focus this year.
Stay focused on God and growing in your relationship with Him – whether it’s committing to spending more time in prayer each day (even if it’s just fifteen minutes more), attending worship services more regularly and possibly mid-week, reading and studying at least one Scripture a day, or beginning prayers with “What would you have me to do for You, Lord?” instead of the other way around.
Focus on your own personal goals and dreams and work with God to help them come to pass.
Ask Him for the first steps, commit to doing that (give yourself a deadline to accomplish the first thing) and watch God add His “Super” upon your “natural” to manifest His supernatural power in whatever He has called you to do.
Whether it’s focusing on your improving your spiritual life, your health, your finances, your social life or overall well-being – I admonish you to set goals and stick to them while allowing God to ordain and order your steps along the way.
Step by step…
Day by day…
Hour by hour…
Minute by minute…
Don’t give up – you’re on the way!
Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase. Job 8:7
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 43:19
Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
