Proverb 4:18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. 19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.
I am sure that everyone faced some things in 2016 that they do not want to repeat in 2017. With the New Year upon us I want you to be encouraged that there is hope for a better future. I don’t care what the enemy has done in this past year, he is not an authority over you. The enemy cannot stop God from:
1. LOVING US
Romans 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
2. HEARING US
Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
3. HELPING US
Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
In addition to these things the promise of God from Proverb 4:18 for those declared righteous, the just, and in contrast to the wicked whose future is dark, our future path is bright. The Bible uses a metaphor, figurative and symbolic speech, of our future being compared to the gradual rising of the Sun. Like the first rays of light off the horizon in the morning which gradually increases to the full light of the noon day Sun or full light of day, so is our future. It only gets brighter and brighter. Stay on God’s path for your life in 2017. Mix your faith with that by believing what God said and saying it with your mouth, “My future is getting brighter and brighter, in Jesus Name.”
HAVE A BLESSED AND BRIGHT NEW YEAR
