Believe God is good
Psalm 34:8 Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!
If you want a kickin year, you have to believe God is good. All the time.
Action point: search Lord, good; How has He been good to you in 2014?
Believe you are a Child of God
Matthew 6:9 Pray like this: Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy.
Jesus taught us to come to God as Father. Without pomp or fear. Without pretence or shame. Come to the Father. And when you recognise Him as Father, you acknowledge yourself as child.
As child of God two things happen:
Galatians 4:6-7 And because we* are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.”* Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child.* And since you are his child, God has made you his heir.
1 John 5:4 For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.
Action point: How will you conduct yourself in 2015 as a child of God?
Believe you define the moment
Matthew 3:13-17 Jesus defined the moment. We define moments by making life choices.
God gives the power to choose. Satan wants us to think our choices are limited. God created thousands of good trees, and only one evil one.
Life is an opportunity. 2015 an opportunity. Define it. Believe right and get ready for your best year yet!
