New Year, New Me
Happy 2014 Blog Family! Thanks for visiting me this year! This year, hmmmm, boy it's been a year already. Paul said it better, I am crushed but not pressed, persecuted not abandoned, struck down but not destroyed, I am blessed beyond the curse cause his promise will endure and his joy's gonna be my strength, though sorrrow may last for one nite, joy comes in the morning. Actually Israel and the New Breed acutally sings that song too, verse by verse, verbatim. That's the best Song verse and scripture verses I could give you to explain where I've been since the New Year. Yeah, it's a New Year and a New Me, but the only way for the new me to come out, is for the old me to be crushed, broken and straight up dead. I'm talking to my seasoned folks now, yall know what I'm talking about. New beleivers, hang in there, I'm getting to yall. In order for the New Me to shine out-, that old man, has to be crucified in the flesh. God wants that old man dead. Yeah, I know we were all taught that when we first got saved, that 2 Corinthians 5:17, was true. It says that "If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, Old things are passed away, and behold ALL things have become new. And I agree, that is true. Our old man, the man we used to be is new, but that's talking about our spirit. However, our MIND and our FLESH, we still gotta work on that. We have got to keep our MIND RENEWED and keep our FLESH DEAD, or UNDER SUBJECTION. Both the mind and the flesh can cause some stuff to happen.
So, we as Christians have got to stand up as his real holy people and keep it 100. Not only with the body of Christ, but we've gotta keep it real with unbeleivers too. They are lost, and it's not gonna help them to "get found"/ "get saved" unless we, Christians stop condemming them, and putting them down. I don't know how this turned into a preaching message casuse I shole didn't mean to. BUT we gonna take this annointing and keep on flowing. I pray right now for ever non beleiver to come out of darkness and that your eyes would be open to a new light and a fresh new knowledge of the thing s of God. I call you blessed, prosperous, fulfilled and living out God's calling upon your life. I call an abundance of blessings over you in Jesus name!
Happy New Year, for The Best Has Yet to Come!
