A New Look At 2019

Isaiah 43:19 New International Version (NIV)

19 See, I am doing a new thing!
    Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
    and streams in the wasteland.

This verse is the one for me as I look at the New Year of 2019. This year can be a year of restoration and a year of new pathways or roads. Maybe you have a verse that the Holy Spirit has given you for 2019. I encourage you to write it down. Keep it in front of you all year long.

I want you to get a glimpse in your heart of what Christ can do in you and through your life. This verse reminds me that I need to forget the failures of the past. I am called to witness for Jesus in the present and to boldly claim the promises he has for me in my future.

I have learned that New Year’s Resolutions come and go and few realize the completion of them. For better words of saying, we fall off the wagon and go back to our old habits and ways. We soon lose sight of the goal that was ahead.

For 2019, I hold to this verse from the old prophet. It will change my life and my heart. I pray always to have eyes that see the best in people, that I have a heart that forgets the worst, to have a mind that forgets the bad, and most of all, a soul that never loses faith in Christ.

How does this New Year look for you? Ask the Holy Spirit for new restoration in your soul. We serve a mighty King Jesus. Be active in advancing His Kingdom in 2019.

Born a King

Matthew 2:2 New International Version (NIV)

and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”

We often hear from this verse, “Do wise men still seek him?” I believe that each person has to ask themselves that question. Where do I go to get wisdom? Where is the truth? Can there be peace?

This is what I believe the Magi were looking for. They were looking for a King who could bring peace to a world that seems to never have it. Those men followed a star, so it makes sense that they were probably astrologers. They kept going to find this King. The star settled over the small town of Bethlehem. Keep in mind, the Magi were Gentiles, so all nations were seeking the one who might save.

When they finally lay eyes on Jesus, they realized he was more than just the King of the Jews. Instead, they found the King of all Humanity, a Savior, and their Savior. The Lights went on inside them, and immediately went to their knees and worshipped the King of Kings.

Today is the day before Christmas. We take time as a nation to commemorate the birth of Christ. Love is born and hope has arrived. That is the essence of Christmas.

Let us observe this Christmas to go and take our families to church and participate in a night where we sing and praise. Jesus is the Truth and the Life. He once came as a baby, born of the Virgin Mary. Yet, it does not stop there. He is coming again giving the present of Heaven and Everlasting Life.

Merry Christmas, my brothers. May our hearts sing out and our lives be ever changed because Jesus came, he died, and he rose again! Amen!
