A new year is an opportunity to make all things new or better. This section of THE POWER OF A NEW YEAR is divided into two parts;
This means to return something back to its original state or position.
You may have given up on yourself and said: “I can’t quit smoking. I’ve missed it.” You could have said: “I can’t be a good son. I’m so cracked.” The good news is that you can be and do better. All you need is to give your maker a chance to press the RESET button and you will return to the way He made you.
“The spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the almighty gives me life.” Job 33:4 NKJV
Regardless of your mess, if you permit Him to press the RESET button your situation will change.
This is how you let God press the RESET button:
“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; the new life has began.” 2 COR. 5:17 NLT
So, if you want to get it right. If you desire to live according to God’s pattern, all you need to do is accept Christ; come to him the way you are. By accepting Christ genuinely your old life and experiences will disappear before the new glory that God has designed for you.
You need not to worry about anything people have said or written concerning you, because;
“He cancelled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.” Col. 2:14 NLT
In this new year you can start afresh, stronger, better and on a clean slate. All you need to do is allow your maker press the RESET button and you behold wonders. There’s nothing better than living the way God designed you to live.
This means to give new strength or energy to something.
God has designed our lives so beautiful, such that we can refresh ourselves when we are weary or tired. Even if you are not tired, He wants you to start the next chapter of your life better.
In this new year, He wants you to be a better father, son, mother, or friend. It is your maker’s plan for you to experience extraordinary love. He has plans for your business to boost. All you need to do is leave everything to Him and follow His direction, Because;
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Is. 40:31 KJV
While waiting on God you are exposed to a divine knowledge that will turn your life around. All you sincerely need is fruitful knowledge. “That the the soul be without knowledge, it is not good.” Prov. 19:2 KJV
Since you are a new man or a difference specie of mankind that lives according to God’s pattern, you need continual renewal or transformation into the image and likeness of God, so that you can remain effectual and productive in all your endeavors: this is done through the studying of the word (the bible) and communion with the Father and Son, through the Holy Spirit. [2Cor. 3:18, Colo. 3:10.]
To refresh means to implant and saturate your mind and being with the knowledge of God’s word. Study the word, speak it and live it. you are getting better everyday.
You have to options, either to RESET or REFRESH. Choose the one that fits your situation the most and you will never regret it.
