Day 29 Advent count down and beyond! In His Word 12-29-2023

 Day 29 Advent count down and beyond! In His Word  12-29-2023

In only a few days the number at the end of our dates will change. Not a whole lot will really change from day to day except we will have to remember to put 4 instead of a 3. Thank God that every day can be a new beginning when we are starting it with Him!

“If you love me, obey my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him because he lives with you now and later will be in you. John 14:15-17

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5

As we plan ahead to the new year we need to remember to make God a part of it. We need to be certain we will take the time, or make the time, to pray and read the Word to know what His commands are so that we will know what to do to obey them.

Now we know that we are to love Him, and if we love Him we abide in Him, and in abiding we find that He loves us too! What about the way our worldly friends start their new year? Do they know that there is a God waiting to spend time with them?

Let’s make it our plan to share Jesus with those who we know may not know Him.  As we spoke of the full month long, its not so hard to do when we get in the Word, and prayer daily. The more you pray the more you read the more it will come out of your mouth and shine from your life.  That is the reason we want to make the plan to start the year ahead with God centered in it.

So, let’s do it! Let’s start out with prayer! At 12 am on the 1st of the 1st of 2024 lets join in unison to pray for the world of people, that not only would peace ensue but that the people who do not now Him will come to know Him. That they might have joy, love, peace and be obedient to the Lord! In Jesus’ name…
