by | Jan 2, 2022 | New Life, New Year, The Family Menu, Trials

“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”
‭‭(Isaiah‬ ‭1:18‬ ‭KJV‬‬).

Dearly beloved and friends,please go straight to your mirror and look at yourself.What do you see? Joy,Peace,Worry or Distress? Better be joyful and peaceful, it’s your choice really.
Are you distressed, worried and have a shattered life? Jesus can mend broken and troubled hearts, no matter how “irredeemable”

Don’t go into the new year with hurts, shame, bitterness ,Unforgiveness, failure and the like.

  • “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (‭‭Matthew‬ ‭11:28‬ KJV).
  • “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John‬ ‭14:27‬ KJV).
  • “Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah‬ ‭43:19 KJV).

Examples of mended shattered lives:

  1. Jacob: A supplanter per excellence,met with the mercy of God and got transformed to Israel and beloved of God (Genesis 32:27-28).
  2. Rahab: A woman of easy virtue was redeemed because she identified with God’s people,she later became fore-parent of the Savior (Hebrews 11:31).
  3. Saul of Tarsus: A terrible persecutor and hater of God’s children;had an encounter with Jesus and got transformed (2 Timothy 1:11).
  4. YOU: God is no respecter of persons,release that shattered life to Him today ;and He will make it new and worthy (1 Timothy 1:15).

What to do: Don’t carry over any burden into the New Year.There must be no carry over.

Prayer Points:

  1. Father, thank You for this chance to settle with You,please help and redeem me.
  2. Father, please reverse all the “irreversibles” of my life and restore unto me Your joy.
  3. Father, as I prepare to step into a New Year,give me a template to truly implement.
  4. Father, let my life henceforth be pleasing Lord unto Thee.
