The last week of each year tends to become the lost week. Once we turn the corner of Christmas, everything blurs. Here are some suggested activities to allow you to keep enjoying the spirit of the holidays, while still making solid use of those transitional days.
What difference does a new year make? We aren’t superstitiously supposing that everything changes because we flip the page of a calendar, but we do know that the Lord is faithful to steward whatever is given to Him. As this New Year begins, I encourage you to let the Holy Spirit fill you afresh and drive out any oppressive works of hell and enter this New Year as a runner, fit to run the race, with all eyes on your loving Savior, Jesus Christ.
As a New Year unfolds, the Lord wants us to know what to believe Him for and how to respond openly to what He is set to do. How can we best step forward into His year of new tomorrows with expectation?
Are you ready for God to do "a new thing" in your life? It's already set in motion. The Lord calls us to open to and embrace His promise as He leads us on His pathway to fulfillment.
Whatever has shaped your life up to this moment has no claim on the tomorrow God has planned for you. Whatever disappointment, shifting circumstances, or "dead" things are in your past, they do not need to hamstring your future. Learn how to become a person who lays hold of God's promise for tomorrow by living according to His pattern and embracing His presence today.
Are you ready for the Lord to do something new in your life? Something unexpected and out of the ordinary? The biblical story of Ruth shows us God’s ways with people who are just like us. When facing a crossroad, you and I must decide whether to stay with the status quo or, like Ruth, respond to God’s call to “a new time and place” and choose to follow Him.
