Happy New Year! I honestly can’t believe it’s already 2015, but it’s here and what better way to start off the new year than with some beautiful verses. Normally, at the end of every month, I post a few verses that the Lord has laid on my heart. However, since I missed posting December’s verses, I decided to start January off right.
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
I absolutely love how this verse paints a picture of our caring Lord. I also think this is a great verse to think about during the start of 2015 (and throughout the whole year), since God is telling us that He will guide us.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD. “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
In 2015, I want to focus on seeking the Lord more and I encourage you to do the same. This is a very popular verse in the Bible and might sound cliche, but if you just take the time to read through these words, there is so much hope.
2 Corinthians 8:9
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.
Keeping the Christmas spirit alive all year! Even though Christmas is over, we should never stop thanking God that He gave up His splendor to be our Savior.
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.
Focus on God’s grace and know that it is an essential part of our lives.
I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.
As believers, we always need to be alert and focus on living the life God has called us to live.
To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy – to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.
I love how it says, “to him who is able to keep you from falling.” Throughout this year, try to trust Him more and know that He can hold you when you’re weak.
1 Peter 2:24
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.
Die to sins, live for righteousness. He died so that you might be healed. Accept this healing and be changed.
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
And again, keep the focus of hope and trust. He is our hope and He is faithful.
