5 THINGS TO DO AS WE BEGIN THIS NEW YEAR



Welcome to Purposeful Living today. It is with great joy in my heart I welcome you to 2018 a year of Multiplication of Grace for you and your family. The Father of our Lord Jesus Christ will supply all your needs.





As we begin this new year let us take note of the following to help us fulfill God's plan for our life this year:

1. Make God your number one Priority:
The only reason you saw this year 2018 is not because you are beautiful, talented, smart, skilled etc. My dear the only reason you are alive is because of God. Your life in 2018 should give God Glory.

"But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness ([aa]His way of doing and being right), and then all these things [ab]taken together will be given you besides" ( Matthew 6:33 AMP).

You don't own yourself, God does. Make Him your number one priority this year. Your fellowship with Him should be constant and intimate. God is the giver of all good and perfect gift. What is it you need this year; a striving business/ profession, academic excellence, favour before men, a lovely spouse, a heaven on earth relationship/marriage, you want to be a landlord  and want to have your car this year? Whatever you need He can give you, the bible says the Lord is my Shepherd, there is nothing I shall want (Psalm 23:1).


2. Speak the Right Words:
It was through the power of His words He brought the universe to being. In my last post I talked about you planning for this new year. Now that you have planned and have a vision of where you are going to this year,  it is time to begin to speak forth the vision in you to reality. By our words we are condemned and also justified. Yes! you want a justified 2018 not a condemned one, then begin to speak forth what you want to see not what the circumstances of life has made you to see. God will move based on your confession, so don't speak negative but positive.

"Tell them, As I live, says the Lord, what you have said in My hearing I will do to you" (Numbers 14:28 AMP).

You are Blessed and not cursed
You have a sound mind so you can't be dull
You are healthy because He became weak so you can be strong and by His stripes you are Healed.
You are the head and not the tail...


Speak faith filled words not fear filled words, God is pleased by only our faith in Him ( Hebrew 11:6).
            
3. Have a positive Attitude:
It is often said that your attitude determines your altitude. It is the attitude of the lion that makes it the king of the forest not its size.
Attitude is your perception to life and your responsibilities in life.
How do you see life? If life is to be enjoy or endured it is based on your attitude to life.
If your responsibilities are seen as burdensome or as a medium of impacting the world with the hidden treasures God has deposited in you, it is based on your attitude.

"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me" ( Philippians 4:13).

We fail or succeed based on our attitude.
In 2018 have a mind of Christ (Positive Attitude), see possibilities and refuse to be intimidated by your past failures.
Don't limit yourself, God has great plans for you this year.
All things are possible to him that believes.
                   

4.Invest in yourself:
The greatest investment is not in your clothes, shoes, mobile devices, a house, a car, real estate or even a business.
The greatest invest is in YOU ( Your Mind), when you invest in your mind all the things I listed above will flow in your direction.
The bridge between where you are now and where you want to be is the knowledge and information you have in your mind.
The more you sharpen an axe the more effective it will be used. You need to sharpen (Update) yourself for your next level. God wants to use you mightily this year, but if your axe is blunt, he will not be able to use you mightily.

"If the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength: but wisdom is profitable to direct" ( Ecclesiastics 10:10).

Sharpen yourself by reading books, Listening to audio messages and watching videos that relates to your profession and what God has called you to do.
BE SHARP AND SMART.

5. Build the right Association:
There is nothing that can kill a destiny like the wrong association. It was holy angels who chose to assolLiate with the devil that made them to lose their place as angel of God but now called demons.
You are who you are today because of a very large percent how your association has influenced you.

"Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners" ( 1 Corinthians  15:33 KJV).

If you love God move with people that love God
If you want to be great, move with great people.
Move with people that will challenge your present level not celebrate it so you can remain there.
Don't associate with people that will destroy your destiny, you will certainly see this fruit in them but you choose to leave or stay with them..
The prostitue, lesbian, gay, womanizer, kidnapper...are all a product of association, so also are people with a God fearing personality.
Now, you have a vision look for vision builders to be around them not vision destroyers..
It is my prayer that in 2018, we will reign in life in Christ Jesus.
God bless you..

You can begin a relationship now with the lord Jesus Christ by saying this prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ  I acknowledge that I am a sinner,  I believe in your death and resurrection.  I ask you forgive me my sins,  I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life.  I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name .Amen .
If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
