Day 23: Just Believe


So how are you doing with your

New Year's Resolutions?

Do you have abs of steel... yet?

Have you lost 20 pounds...yet?

Have you ___________...yet?

Not to be Debbie Downer,

but Resolutions can become burdensome as chores,

so little by little we give up because there is always another

New Year's Day to begin again.

RESOLUTIONS are not bad,

because they are pacts we make to change ourselves for the better,

But what if we made

BELIEVING GOD our first

RESOLUTION~

would we give up so easily

Or would~

"the PEACE OF GOD, which transcends all understanding,

guard our hearts & our minds in CHRIST JESUS" (Philippians 4:9)

Or would our

HOPE IN THE LORD renew our strength~

so that We will soar on wings like eagles; We will run and not grow weary, We will walk and not be faint (Isaiah 40:31)

Or would we be able to leave our past, present & future mistakes behind

because GOD has as we ~

"repent of our sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away" (Acts 3:19)

Or would fear be replaced by love because~

"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love" (I John 4:18)

Just what if we made

BELIEVING GOD

for all that HE promises

as our first

RESOLUTION

then wouldn't everything just fall into place organically

because we would be

changed from the inside out

and that would change everything

because

GOD

said so

&

JESUS

made it so

because

JESUS IS MORE THAN A RESOLUTION~

HE IS THE TRUTH WORTH BELIEVING~

“If you abide in MY word[continually obeying MY teachings and living in accordance with them, then] you are truly MY disciples.

And you will know the truth [regarding salvation],

and the truth will set you free[from the penalty of sin]” (John 8:31-32)
