A New Year…A New Opportunity

A New Year allows a Blood-bought Christian another chance to draw closer to God. It is a time for looking forward and embracing opportunities to be about our Father’s business. Learning from our mistakes is good; but it doesn’t please God when we beat ourselves up over what we could have, should have or wish we had or had not done. Allowing the enemy to keep us pressed down with such things does not lend to victorious Christians. Philippians 3:13 says, “We should forget those things that are behind and reach for things before us”. Let’s get our sins under the blood and then forget them as God does. We can’t “fix” anything. That’s God’s job! God can take horrendous, heart-breaking circumstances and speak victory through them. An illness, accident, financial dilemma, or sudden death can touch a hardened heart and bring someone to their knees. Job’s suffering was an example of perseverance. David and Daniel’s courage proved confidence and faith. The crucifixion of Jesus provided Saving Grace and defeat over death, hell and the grave! We can’t change our yesterdays, but we can ask God for wisdom to make right choices for our tomorrows. Jesus must be our corner stone with everything else built around Him. We may not know exactly what we do want but if we work away from what we don’t want, we will be working toward our goal of living a tomorrow that is closer to God !
