BECOME A BETTER YOU

MAIN TEXT: 2 CORINTHIANS 6:17
“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”.

JEREMIAH 29:13 “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”

Beloved of God, for you to be really redeemed of the Lord, you must adopt a new way of living.
One thing that can come upon a new creature in Christ is the departure from curses to blessings.

Apostle Paul encourages us to be transformed rather than being conformed to this world of sin (Romans 12:1-2). The truth of the matter is that only those who are in Christ can experience the new things God promises us in His word.
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away, behold all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17).

When a person accepts Jesus as His or Her Lord and Saviour, such a person automatically become dead to the old life, every link with the old life is cut off. Every new creature in Christ submits to His Lordship.
From the point of rebirth, we begin to hunger for righteousness by pursuing purity, honesty, justice, love, humility and service to humanity. It starts from a new mind. You immediately begin to think differently from the old ways to such an extent that your new behavior and a better you may seem strange, even to you. This new life in Christ comes with the assurance of abundant life here on earth and even in heaven.

THE LIFE THAT IS TRANSFORMED BY CHRIST STANDS OUT

PRAYER: Father, as a new creature in Christ, please help me to always live according to your word in Jesus Name. Amen.

CHOOSE PRAISE

MAIN TEXT:Psalm 68:19—Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.

Psalm 9:1 – I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

When you have problems, you tend to focus on the negative. Praise helps you remember who you are and who God is. This year, learn to make praise your natural response for everything you face—good or bad. Develop that habit in your life and encourage those around you to do the same—and then see what God does. When you praise God for an answer to your prayer before it happens, that’s faith—and that’s when God begins to fight for you.

Psalm 42:5-6 says: “Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again—my Savior and my God! Now I am deeply discouraged, but I will remember you” When we choose Praise over worries, it lifts our spirit from being weighed down with life’s challenges.

Occasionally what we call prayer is really just a complaining session. We’re just telling God everything that’s wrong, like God doesn’t already know. God is not moved by our problems, He’s moved by our faith, and praise is faith at work. Stop focusing on the battle and focus on God through praise. Yes, it is difficult to focus on God and praise Him when the battle is fierce. But remember that our enemy loves to play with our emotions. As long as we are led by our feelings, he will defeat us.

FOCUS ON GOD THROUGH PRAISE

PRAYER: The Lord God lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be my God, the Rock, my Savior. Therefore, I will praise you, LORD, among the nations; I will sing the praises of your name in Jesus’ name, Amen.
