As we enter a new year, we all look at our lives and I believe that every one of us has some things in our lives that we’d like to see changed. With the new year it brings many things; A close to the following year, a fresh start, resolutions and expectations and many times hope. It is the most natural time of the year where we have a built in process for new beginnings. So take advantage of this….don’t just talk about it. Implement something new. Begin to do something that you’ve procrastinated this far in doing. Make a change. Do it!
Because although every day can be a new beginning, take advantage of this one. But remember this: If you really want to see change, you have to change some things you believe, it stats with what God has said….like Philippians 4:13, You can do (fill in the blank) it! Believe Romans 8:31 that God is for us. Really believe it. Believe 2 Peter 1:3 that tells us that God has given us everything for life and godliness. This year grab on to a promise from God and go after it! Really believe it. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you believe it! Deep down at your core believe it.
“Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.”
Change what you believe, really believe and your thoughts about everything will change. Your words will become different, you’ll begin to speak into your destiny instead of off-hand words that fight against it. Your actions will follow and done a few times repetition begins to take over and they become habits. What you do consistently tells you what you value and what your life becomes.
It all changes because you determined to listen to the Word of the Lord and truly believe it. Remind yourself over and over again what His Word says….the rest will follow.
2018 is going to be vastly different for many people, you might as well be one of them.
