FAITH LETS JOY SHINE THROUGH.
On this doorstep of another year, we may have no idea what it will hold, but we have faith and assurance that God does. That gives us the confidence to live each day with hope and great expectation.
Here on the doorstep of this brand new year is a good place to reflect on our personal lifestyles and habits, to decide which are helping us develop Christian character and which are not.
It’s a good place to choose Godly traits for our lives: integrity, courage, wisdom, and faithfulness. It’s time to choose traits such as compassion and generosity that cause us to reach out beyond ourselves to others. We want our lives to reflect contentment and confidence – Christian characteristics that are worked out in the practical, everyday things of life. Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit (Rom. 15:13).
PRAYER FOR TODAY
Dear Lord, thank You for the power, wisdom, and strength You have provided. Like a wonderful trainer, You have helped me to exercise my faith in ways that are beyond human comprehension. By faith, miracles can happen, circumstances will change, and we will progress in the right direction to spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical health.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Next year and each day of that year choose Christian character!
