Have you began to look back on the list you wrote down in the year 2018 ? That list that tells you how productive and successful your year was or wasn’t? I hope looking at the list bought a smile to your face! Yes; regardless of what the list is revealing to you. You know why ? You survived last year! You managed to try to stay focus on your goals while handling all the curveballs this year bought to you. You pass some and fail some. Regardless you ended the year exactly how God needed you to! You ended last year still seeking God and running this race. You ended last year ready to begin working in the new one.
Your bringing in this year; new experiences, lessons and strategy! God just started teaching you what you were built for! We are built for OPPOSITIONS!!! Why ? We have decided to live a life that is very contrary to our society. A lifestyle that is lived by the unseen for our physical eyes. People struggle to understand it because they are trying to make logic out of it. They don’t see it, so they won’t believe it. However Paul encourages us once more to press forward. He reminds us that we are built to conquer and not to cower! So smile at 2018 and scream “I conquered last year!”
Main reason why you conquered last year regardless of anything is because you woke up and moved forward! You woke up understanding that there is something more bigger than all of us out there! You chose to walk in obedience regardless of how many times you slipped. By choosing to press forward you chose to put your armor on !!!
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” ~ Ephesians 6:10-17
Let’s stay focus in 2019!!! We will conquer !!!!
