Do any of you have some New Years resolutions? I have not really nailed one down per say, but my ultimate goal is to continue to strive to grow closer in my walk with the Lord. I want to be used by Him for His glory in whatever way that looks like.
I hope you all have a great rest of the day :)
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.— John 16:33 (NIV)
Thoughts on Today's Verse...This world is a place of struggle. Yes, we can live above the struggle for awhile. We can find a way to simply ignore or re-label the struggle for a time. But in the end, the struggle will find us. But in the midst of struggle, we can remind ourselves that our victory is secure. Jesus has won! We will share in his great triumph. In case you didn't know, the final outcome is already determined and Christians "win big" through Jesus. And this victory is a forever win!
My Utmost For His Highest:
Once God has begun the process of sanctification in your life, watch and see how God causes your confidence in your own natural virtues and power to wither away. He will continue until you learn to draw your life from the reservoir of the resurrection life of Jesus. Thank God if you are going through this drying-up experience!
Our Daily Bread:
Have you lost your spiritual balance through a sinful choice, which is keeping you down? Repent and follow the God of second chances once again.
