2012: New Year, New Life!

9 January 2012 No Comment

Every New Year’s Eve, as we cross from one year to the next, it’s a good opportunity for us to close a chapter of our life and open a new one. As some of you know, that’s what we do, every year, with our “New Year’s Eve Ceremony“!

It’s like crossing a bridge and leaving the past behind, as we move into our destiny! As the old year comes to a close, we can look back at where we have been, what we have done, etc. But then, as we move into the new year, it’s time to turn around and look forward at what’s ahead, at what life still has to offer. Our past has brought us where we are today, now it’s time to cross that bridge and move forward with faith! Life has so much more in store for us!

History is full of examples of people who crossed rivers to claim their promised land. Those who crossed it with faith, “being fully persuaded that, what God had promised, He was able to perform” (Rom. 4:21), received their inheritance! Those who doubted and looked back, got instead stuck in a desert for years. Don’t let that happen to you!

Cross that river with courage and claim what’s yours by faith! God is only waiting on you to take a step of faith in the direction He’s showed you to go, in order to meet you there and do great exploits for you. Look at what He did for the children of Israel, when they crossed the Jordan river with faith and saw the walls of Jericho coming down! He gave them the land that He had promised them and enlarged their borders to make them a great nation.

“Jesus is the same, yesterday, today and forever” (Heb. 13:8). What He did for them in the past, He can do for you today, and He promised that “greater works than these shall ye do” (John 14:12). We know that’s true because “He’s not a man that He should lie” (Nu 23:19). His word is an incredible foundation to have, a solid rock upon which to build a house that is able to withstand the storms to come!

That’s what we did, as we moved into this New Year 2012! We crossed our bridge into our destiny, leaving the past 15 years of our lives behind and moving 600 km away from where we have lived, into a new area where we have never lived before, simply because God told us to do it, and now we are excitingly waiting to see the walls of Jericho come down for us!

We know that the Lord has led us here and we expect Him to do greater works than what we have seen before, because our God is awesome and He’s never failed us in the past! He’s always done something greater and more exciting for us, every time we stepped out in faith to do what He told us to do, and that’s because we know “Who” our God is!

“Know therefore that our Lord is the faithful God, which keeps covenant and mercy with them that love Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations” (Deut. 7:9).

Do you know Who God is? Do you know that He loves you, and that He has great plans up ahead for your life? His word says: “I know the thoughts I think toward you, said the Lord, they are thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope and a future” (Jer. 29:11)!

Your best is yet to come! No matter where you are presently in life, or what you might have experienced in the past, God is faithful and He has a better and greater future for you up ahead, you just need to step out in faith and claim what He has promised you!

The future is as bright as the promises of God!

If you have been blessed by the words you have been reading while visiting this site, would you please consider clicking on the “donate” box (here on the right column) and sowing a seed of blessings in our Healing Broken Hearts ministry?

God’s word promises that “whoever sows bountifully shall also reap bountifully” (2 Cor. 9:6). We pray that He will bountifully bless you and help you reap “abundantly above all that you can ask or think” (Ephes. 3:20)! We love you.
