I am so excited to bring this devotional to you all this evening. Even more, I am excited about having this kind of devotional on my kindle ‘shelf’ to help me to stay encouraged. Like many of you, I have goals for the new year.
As hard as it is to believe, the new year is almost upon us. Each year, we each have our lists of things we want to accomplish. We have many “day one’s” each year. By that, I mean, there are things we commit to doing each year. But, we just seem to get stuck.
As humans, we just get stuck sometimes. Scripture reminds us that we are willing, but [our] body is weak (see Mt. 26:41),” and then we are reminded that we “do not understand what [we] do. For what [we] want to do [we] do not do, but what [we] hate [we] do (see Rom. 7:15).” But, we have help. We find the answer we search for.
Jesus Christ, our God and Savior, is the One who enables us to turn day one into year two. He is how our lives get turned around, to where they should be, as we are filled with the wonder of God our Savior. He is our Deliverer (see Rom. 7:25)!
This 180 day devotional helps us remember where to turn, when we find ourselves lacking and in need. God promises to be our everything. He is our strength, when we don’t think we can step into day two. He is still there, when all others have seemed to bailed on us. He gives us… BRAND NEW BEGINNINGS! That’s what this is about, stepping into God’s new beginnings for our lives. Are you ready? I am.
In this devotional, we aren’t solely taught about the Word of God. God’s Word breathe over others’ lives, and we get to hear their stories about how God has acted on their behalf. The testimonies in this book, are amazing and heartfelt. Three things this devotional has taught me:
- We are not alone.
- God is with us.
- We can overcome the craziest of obstacles, because of the greatness of our God.
When we pick up a devotional like this one, we aren’t just finishing a book. Instead, we are allowing God into the deepest parts of our hearts and minds. These first days, aren’t spent alone, but we are allowing ourselves to be transformed by the power of God.
