Ephesians 5:16-17 tells us 'Make the best use of time because the days are evil . Therefore do not be foolish , but understand what the will of the Lord is .'
It is time at the start of a NEW YEAR to STOP settling for ' same old ... same old'. In His grace Jesus has given us each another day , month , year ( please Lord) to honour Him , His Kingdom , His priorities . Let us all STOP any behaviours , thought patterns , activities that would hinder God's perfect will in our lives in 2013 .
Give Jesus permission to put the searchlight of His Holy Spirit into your life and shed light on ANYTHING that will be unhelpful to you and His glory , 'Search me oh God ... know my heart ... see if there be any wicked way in me ....'.
What lies on the other side of our choices in favour of God's Kingdom is the sweet taste of LOVE .. JOY .. PEACE .. POWER ... OBEDIENCE ... FAVOUR & so much more .
Come on dear friends may WE stop making excuses and authentically live for our Saviour & King ... LORD JESUS ,every day ... every way . I am praying for you as you step out in faith to honour and serve JESUS in 2013 ... please pray for me and let us celebrate the many victories that will be won in His name .
Be excited , be expectant , be scintillating with spiritual fervour .. because JESUS will do amazing things in and through you in the coming days .
TITUS 2:14 ''He gave Himself to RESCUE us from everything that is evil & to make our hearts pure. He wanted us to be His own people & to be eager to do right ."
Praying for all friends in 2013
