Happy New Opportunity, Not Just New Year
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23
God wants us to forget the past and press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14 God encourages and enables us to fulfil the calling he has been preparing us for.
People are often seen excited about a New Year as if a magic is in the New Year and they are disappointed soon after. Where is the change in the New Year then? The change isn’t definitely in just the New Year days, Thursday Friday Saturday… We can definitely be excited about our preparation to make the change happen in the New Year and not just about the New Year.
God gives us a new opportunity not a new year and He expects us to be diligent and faithful to make the change happen.
If we are just expecting a magic from the New Year, we are heading to some more disappointments. We were in 2012 dying to see the New Year of 2013. And the year 2013 soon became old weather we applied the word of God in our lives see results or not. We were also in 2013 dying to be in 2014 as if 2014 brings a magic with it. But 2014 is old now weather we used it for Gods purpose in our lives or for our selfish desire.
We also have just the opportunity of 2015 not a secured success. We make it success or failure. Take out the magic from the New Year and make the coming year an actually a new year!
