One of the most powerful making of things new in all of history is when Jesus arose from the dead to new life and took His seat next to His Father in the heavenly realms!!! Not only that, but the new gift of the Holy Spirit entered into every heart who believed in Jesus through faith to guide us in Truth!!! Now that is power out of the world and back in again in amazing ways! Jesus was right when He said:
“All authority has been given to me. Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
This same power that raised Jesus up to new life and placed His Spirit in our hearts is now living with us as we enter into the New Year, precious family!!! Now how exciting is that to have this kind of power leading us and guiding us:
“With man these things are impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Part of obedience to Christ is remembering to rest in His loving grace and trusting in His power to bring victory by enabling us to live the Christian life through all of life, including the gift of seeing His power at work in every believer who has faith in Him with this coming new year as He desires to share the good news of Jesus through each of us so that all may have this new year gift:
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy, He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”
1 Peter 1:3
If you have faith in Jesus, you have living hope and the full power of Jesus at work in you, around you and for you, not just in a life to come about someday, but here and now!!!
Now how exhilarating is that to think about as we step forward in new life together!!! Let us trust in Him to bring victory as oh, He can in accordance with His perfect will and sovereignty on the move!!! Blessed are we who have faith in Him always!!! Celebrate and believe in the power of God with you!!! It is all ya need to be victorious!!!
