Most people Christians and non-Christians a like attempt to get a new start at this time of the year. We even give them a name and we call them “New Year’s Resolutions”. The sad fact is they usually have been dropped or broken by the time the first month of the year, January has run its course.
So we then usually get discouraged and either lighten the load of change that we desire to see whether its anything from losing weight, doing more exercise, making a commitment to get in shape, start saving more money, or spiritual matters such as praying more, living holier, loving deeper and the list just goes on and on. But either way by January 31st we have usually compromised our list to fit a more compatible life style.
The reason that I bring this up is that every major change be it spiritual or physical God has either done divinely or given me the strength to carry it out. But a part from His Grace I am powerless to change. For I have tried many times only to fail and be overtaken by conviction thinking that I had let God and my family down. It is one of the greatest lies that our enemy “Satan” uses against the remnant is that God is disappointed or somehow embarrassed by your failure.
The truth is, this God that we serve does not love us by our performance, or our ability to do great feats of physical accomplishment. He loves us based solely on His divine grace and the price that Jesus Christ paid for you to be loved by a great and all powerful God who has the power to stamp humanity out of existence but instead chose to send Jesus Christ to die for us that we might have the choice of life.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believes on Him should not die, but live forever.”
