A New Year’s Challenge – January 7, 2018
- A New Attitude For The New Year
Choosing Your Attitude Will Have a Greater Impact on the New Year Than You Think
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.
Here’s your Action Plan:
- Choose your attitude.
- Choose to take responsibility for your attitude and the impact it has on your life.
- Choose to focus on those aspects of your life over which you have some control.
- Choose friendships.
- Choose to dwell on positive things.
(“Whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, think on those things”; Philippians 4: 8).
- Choose to make changes.
- A Year Of New Beginnings
Through His grace and mercy, God has promised us a new beginning that will endure for eternity…
John 10:10 “…I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
2Co 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
The good news is that God says, “I want to do something new in your life.
I want to give you a FRESH START, A NEW BEGINNING.”
- God takes us to places of dependence, then creates new beginnings, new blessings.
- He makes all things new.
When we come to Christ, we become a new creation. All things become new.
- God is a creator.
He makes new things; He is not in the box we try to place Him in.
He can do in your life what you have never seen done before.
God is only getting started!
A New Vision For The New Year
And though your beginning was small, your latter days will be very great.
Step 1: Quit making excuses.
It is always too soon to quit.
Bible tells us to quit making excuses, admit when it’s our fault and get on with life.
Step 2: Act in faith!
New beginnings come to those who step out in faith.
To change anything in your life by the power of God takes faith. (Matt 9:29)
Mat 9:29 Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you.”
