For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
How much does God love us? He loves us so much He sacrificed His only son for us so that we should live forever. No, not to live forever in this earth, but to live forever in heaven.
We have hope of eternal life through the love of God and the death of Jesus, who hung on the cross and bore every one of our sins.
Have you asked Jesus to come into your life? Have you repented of your sins? Do you believe Jesus was born, died on the cross for your sins, and rose from the grave? Jesus is knocking, will you let Him in?

Our words are a powerful force. We can use them to encourage, destroy, help, heal, etc.
What are you saying to others? Are you using your words to build up others or are you destroying their character? Are you gossiping and spreading rumors or are you talking about the good qualities or personality they possess? We should be careful to use our words in a good way and not in a wicked or evil manner.
Not only do our words have the power to affect others, they have the power to create our world. "I'm broke". "I'll never get out of this place." I hate my car." "I hate my job." When you put such negative words into the atmosphere, don't be shocked to find yourself in the red, in the same place you've always been, with a car that has mechanical issues, and losing your job. I use these as examples because using your words in such a way can create these realities in your life.
Instead of speaking negative words, use positive ones. Speak your reality. Say what you want to happen in your life instead of what you do not want to happen. Speak it and expect it.

We will face problems and obstacles in life. That is just the way it is. Some of the things we face will be huge. Oh yes! At some point in life, we will face something that will make us feel there is no way we can get out of it or overcome it. But God!
God is still on the throne. He is in control. God is much bigger than any problem or obstacle we will face in life. God is able to do what needs to be done. We are familiar with the following saying, "Don't tell God how big the problem is. Tell your problem how big God is." We say it, but do we really believe it? If you believe this and you know God is able to deliver in whatever situation you face, there is no reason to crumble when trouble comes.
God is a big God who does big things. Trust Him.

Some of us will look back at 2017 and be pleased with how far we have come in life. Goals were reached, great things happened, and last year was good. On the flip side, others will not be pleased and may even find themselves in the same place now as they were on January 01, 2017. What happened? Did fear become an obstacle, keeping them from achieving their goals and moving to another level? Maybe they allowed distractions to throw them off course. Or maybe for whatever reason, they simply did not put forth the work or effort required to do what needed to be done.
The Lord has blessed us with a gift called new year. What will you do with it? Will you take the time to seek the Lord for direction for your life? Will you use the gifts and talents He blessed you with, knowing the return of Jesus is ever so near? Will you put in the work required to accomplish your goals? Take note of how precious time is and how you spend your days. Time is ticking away and is ticking away fast.
There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the , that shall stand. Proverbs 19:21
