Topic: Starting The New Year On A Good Note [02/01/2017]
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. Psalm 100:4. Read: Ps 100:1-5
It's good to see the new year and enter into it. Better than just being alive is to make the most out of life. The life of God we have inside of us is not to be a passive one but active in all spheres of life. We're no longer hoping to enter into the new year but are already in, therefore, we must start it on a very good note if we're going to get the best of this year. We must not do it the same way we did it previous years, lest we get the same results.
One of the best ways to begin the new year on a good note is:
1) Thanksgiving unto God Almighty. The Psalmist says, Enter into his gates with thanksgiving. A heart of gratitude is what is required to get the best from God this year. You must thank Him for everything. Thank Him for the previous years. Thank Him in advance for what you're still expecting Him to do.
The second way to begin this year on a good note is:
2) Praises. Praises is what bring God down not complaining or murmuring. Complaining about a particular unfavorable situation only complicates and compounds your problems, so the best way to win a battle triumphantly is to give God quality praise. Thanksgiving and praises are keys to a life of rest and flawless victory. Acts 16:24-25, 2 Chro 20:20-24
* Father, as I give You thanks and praises, make me more than a conqueror this year in Jesus name
