2019 is here “Happy New Year” Gone is the “Old” and Welcome to the “New”
If 2018 was a year of upheaval and anxiety, like a rollercoaster—ups and downs, failures and successes; then it’s time to put on your spiritual helmet. God said in His word “I Make All Things New”. Are you thirsty for a change? Even if you can’t see it now, view yourself and your situation in the eyes of God’s word. 2Cor 5:7 “For we walk by faith and not by sight.”
That spiritual helmet you put on is protection: The word of God protects you from receiving the mental attacks of the enemy. But you “must know” the Word of God in order to refute the enemy’s lies. Satan is a liar & thief. He contradicts God’s word in order to take captives and kill, steal, & destroy lives. Jer 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
The helmet that Jesus gives to us is the “Helmet of Salvation” which we receive when we believe in the finished works of Christ. When we come into covenant (Covenant of Grace) with Jesus, who is the son of God, sinless, perfect, holy, righteous and loved of the Father; then we receive all the benefits that His death, burial and resurrection obtained for us. He makes all things “New”. It’s like taking off that old dirty garment of sin and putting on the new righteous garment of Christ. The Holy Spirit begins to give us a makeover.
Prayer of Salvation
Thank you, Jesus, for loving me, a sinner. and coming to earth to pay the price for my sin on Calvary’s Cross. I receive your gift and I confess you as my Lord and Savior. Fill me with your precious Holy Spirit. My life now belongs to you.
God Blessings to you!
