Just a Thought: The New Year
In 2020 I believe God was busy behind the scenes, digging our foundation, and we didn’t even know it.
2 Timothy 4:7 NLT
“I have fought the good fight of faith. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith.”
For all who have kept the faith, I believe God was behind the scenes, digging your foundation. The deeper the foundation, the higher the building can be. So, for those who have kept the faith in 2020, I believe God is going to bless you.
He is going to mature your faith, your understanding of the word. He will bless what you put your hand to. God is waiting for us to reach out to Him.
So many people make resolutions at this time, firmly deciding to do this or that. Yet so many people fail, almost immediately, because of a lack of maturity. It is because they have focused on the promise of the next shiny, new thing and have neglected the work it takes to walk consistently in maturity. You have to be ready to continue beyond the trendy quick fix and begin living a daily walk with Christ.
So, as we usher in 2021, don’t get fixated on the “new." Work at being consistent in your walk in your new life. It’s not the new that helps us grow; it’s the consistent growth to maturity. It is not very glamorous, but it’s the way we mature the best, the fastest, that gets our eyes fixed on Jesus. Serve Him; honor Him; and prepare to be more and more obedient to Him.
I believe this will be a year of maturing in our faith. Let’s strive to please Him in 2021. Stay faithful; never quit.
It’s going to be a great year!
Just a thought,
