ENCOURAGEMENT FOR THE NEW YEAR 2013
The enemy would have you look at 2012 through his eyes and see all the things that you did not attain, complete, accomplish, and overcome so that you can feel powerless, depressed, and defeated as you move into the new year.
But I say look at 2012 through God’s eyes and see the things that you did accomplish, complete, attain, and overcome and celebrate and praise God for your successes, no matter how large or small.
Yes there were times of pain, disappointment, struggle, and failure, but there were also times of joy, satisfaction, ease and success.
Let the negative experiences make you stronger and wiser and the positive ones empower, strengthen and fill you with renewed faith in God, in His love for you and in His purposes and plans for your life.
Don’t ride the enemy’s bandwagon into 2013, weighed down with his dark, depressive outlook.
Instead, ride in on God’s glory train built up with joy, peace and a spirit of expectancy that 2013 will be your best year ever!
“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.”
(Jeremiah 29:11 – NIV, 1984)
I want to take this opportunity to thank each follower and visitor that graced the pages of “Unwalled” this year.
I am truly grateful for your presence and support and for the privilege to encourage, edify and inspire your lives.
May God’s richest blessings rest upon each of you in 2013.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
