MERRY MONDAY BY PARRIS-
“For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast”
HAPPY NEW YEAR! We will begin a new page in history living out 2018 in our lives. For some it will be a cold day in January, for others the fire and warmth of the Holy Spirit will light the way and thaw our cold hearts to a brighter and prosperous new year.
The book of Genesis was also a new beginning. Where earth became our home and we saw glimpses of a Savior sent to mankind. God had a plan and it is wonderful. There is a purpose in all that he does, and allowing yourself to be penetrated by His Spirit you too can participate in his purpose through you and in you. Each time God spoke, he spoke creation into existence and he hasn’t stopped speaking.
McClarens says, “When we read even the rudiments of what astronomers have discovered regarding the inconceivable vastness of the universe, the huge dimensions of the heavenly bodies, and the grand scale on which everything is framed, we find rising to our lips, and with tenfold reason, the words of David: “When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers: the moon and the stars which Thou hast ordained; what is man that Thou art mindful of him, or the son of man that Thou visitest him?” One can hardly estimate the grandeur the emancipating power of the uniting force of that utterance.”
What is he uttering to you in the new year? Reading the word in this new year will bring direction and blessing into your life-without the word you will be lost, and lose your moorings. Praise is something to adorn yourself with on a daily basis, knowing he will continue and finish the work in our lives and his plan for redemption. Last, make an impact in your world, don’t be a taker but a giver….the more you unload his graces onto others he will load you up with more of his benefits. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
