07/15/2018: All Things Become New

All Things Become New 
How blessed we have been in 2017 and with this great new year of 2018, God will bring out an even greater new year! Do you want to become new and whole? Full of love and compassion for yourself and others? Trust in Jesus and He will guide your steps.
2nd Corinthians 5:17 says, ìTherefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away, behold all things are become new.î BE liked minded, as in unity with others that believe in Jesus. Stay away from those temptations that the devil tries to throw at you. There is nothing that God has made that is not beautiful. From the littlest flower to the biggest animal. God made everything wonderful.
Ecclesiastes3:11 says, ìHe hath made everything beautiful in His time; also He hath set the world in the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
All the things that God did in the beginning and continues to do for us every day until eternity are immeasurable. Let Godís promise and His love for you, enable you to seek and live His will for your life.
Satan would delight in defeating all of us, but God is more powerful. Isaiah 40:30-31, speaks of Godís renewal of the strength that He gives us; ìeven youths grow tires and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Can we stop the devil in his tracks? Yes we can! We must be watchful for the devil because he believes that he can conquer and defeat us. Those tough days when we think we canít take another step, remember what awaits us; HEAVEN. Keep your eyes on the prize; JESUS!
Romans 8:18 is a great verse, ìI consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.î Our Lord loves us so much. All the plans that He has for us in 2018 are in place. Please pray and read your bible, these are our weapons to fight against the devil. Jeremiah 29:11 says, ìfor I know the plans to give you hope and a future.î Where does our hope come from?
From Jesus Christ who gave His life for us, so that we would believe and spend eternity in Heaven with him. 1st Peter 1:3 says, ìpraise be to the Go and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.î Seek Godís face and listen to Him, be still and you will hear Him.
Ezekiel 11:19 says, ìI will give them an undivided heart and out a new spirit in them; I will remove them, there heart of stone and give them a heart of faith.î May God be in your hearts and minds this year, each and every day. Be a light for Jesus in this year of 2018. Plant your feet on solid ground and walk! Happy New Year!
