Stay Strong-Thursday Thought

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
-Philippians 3:13-14 (KJV)

Why do so many people act like there is some sort of  power in January 1st? It is just another day. So often people wallow and wade in their filthy sins waiting for the new year to come around and make resolutions like there is something so special about that time of year. Don’t make new year’s resolutions! This almost contagious attitude of renewal, betterment, and growth that so many get around the new year should be had ALL YEAR ROUND by Christians in regard to their relationship with Christ.

Don’t worry yourself about the matters of life. Don’t worry about anything at all. Just focus on God and what He wants you to do, and He will take care of the rest. Forget about your own plans, seek what God has for you. Why try on your own when you have The One on your side who can speak life into existence, part the Red Sea, and rise from the dead?
