In light of the coming New Year, I thought it only appropriate to remember what God has to say:
For this is what the Lord says – God is the Creator of the heavens. He formed the earth and made it; He established it; He did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited. “I am the Lord and there is no other.” – Isaiah 45:18
The problem is: sometimes people get lost in religion. Don’t get so wrapped up in a tradition or a set of church beliefs that you forget to go directly to Scripture for an answer.
Sure, churches DO help you. Pastors are great sources of knowledge and guidance. But remember that the true source of all knowledge, great and small, is the Lord. When we truly seek His Will, our prayers will be answered, there will be light at the end of the tunnel. We may not understand His ways, or even agree with them, but they are the best way and easiest way from Point A to Point B.
Thank God today for what He has revealed to you and the life He has given you. Remember,
I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. – John 10:10
God wants you to have a fuller life. Take time to pray today and discover how to go about receiving your abundant life.
