Happy New Year!
A new year is a time of fresh resolutions. This is a time of not looking back to past failures but instead have a vision of oneself as a new creature in Christ. Yes, 2 Corinthians 5:17 reads, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things become new.” This verse speaks of old ways are gone by accepting Christ. I feel this verse applies to the New Year as a perfect opportunity to being a new creature in health, life and joy. Do you want a new beginning? I’m not going to advise you to eat right and exercise, even though this is a beautiful practice. I ask you to thirst for Christ and trust God to lead you to a healthy and joyful lifestyle. Often we have our hands on the steering wheel of life white knuckled. What would it feel like to loosen the grip and allow Christ to be the pilot and the instrument of your life? When you trust the Lord to take this powerful lead we are able to go into a deeper relationship with Him.
As we grow with Christ, our life and health manifest into a world that you no longer just dream of, but realize. Enjoy God’s promise and trust He wants you to loosen the grip. He yearns to be the Creator of a joyful life, Healer of food addictions, Comforter of self-sabotaging thoughts and an instrument that will guide you when nothing else will. Most people in life are white knuckled wondering why? It’s time to sit in the back seat and allow Christ to do His mighty work.
