Every New Year begins with a list filled with resolutions. Resolutions are great but, they don’t mean anything if you don’t create tangible steps to accomplish them. My desire for 2018 was to begin differently than any other year. I decided that the pain of where I was was far greater than the pain of change. And we are five days in and, I can confidently say that I have.
Seasons change but the Savior NEVER does. You can’t choose your season but, you can choose your spirit. We can be fruitful, faithful, and passionate Christians in every single season of our lives because Jesus comes with us throughout.
Faith is preparing before the blessing comes. Having a plan b is unnecessary when Jesus is on your side. Don’t dig up in doubt what you planted in faith. In the kingdom, there is no plan b. God is your everything.
Faith does not come from striving; it comes from surrendering. It is not the product of works; it is the product of yielding. In the midst of it all, regardless of what you and I may be facing today, we need to remember that, the answer to it all is sitting at the feet of Jesus.
