As we start the New Year, most of us would be looking to change our Lives for the better. Hence, many people make New Year resolutions. Let’s look to the Bible to see what we can expect, hope for or believe God for in the New Year!
I Have A Future & Hope
As a child of God, the Word of God encourages us to look ahead to the future with sure hope. The bible says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NKJV).
God Hears Our Prayers
As we begin the New Year, let’s begin the year by seeking God. If we seek Him, He promises to hear our prayers when we call on Him, “Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.” Jeremiah 29:12 (NKJV)
You Can Find God
If you are hungry and thirsty for God, you will find God. The Creator of the universe, God wants you to walk with Him. He wants to fellowship with you. He wants to relate with you. Will you reach out and accept His Call today? “And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah29:13NKJV)
It is worth to know the main drivers in your life before jumping into making another New Year resolution. And to change the drivers if you want to change your life. Make pursuing and finding God your #1 goal in 2017! Do not be satisfied with Christianity as just a religion. God wants to have close ellowship and relationship with you.
God Will Set You Free and Bring You Back to Your Promised Land
“I will be found by you, says the LORD, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the LORD, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive.” Jeremiah 29:14 (NKJV)
You may have lost your way in life. We may be in “captivity” in situations and circumstances that have imprisoned and bound you. God is reaching out to you, willing you to believe that He has a plan and purpose for your life! A plan to give you a future and a hope. He wants to set you free and bring you back to your promised land! God promises us eternal life not only for after death but the divine quality of life for our life now.
He wants to give us His Peace, His Joy, His Love, His goodness, His mercies, His loving kindnesses, His grace, His power, His Anointing to enable us to live our abundant and fulfilling life right now on earth. He wants us to have a part in His divine nature and give us all things that pertain to life and godliness! [“as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” 2 Peter 1:3-4 (NKJV)
