Happy New Year! Making new years resolutions yet? Real quick, I want to tell you what I think you’ll need to add to your resolutions to render your entire list achievable…
First, what do you think of when you see the number 365? The calendar? The year? New Year’s? The resolutions you just vowed to keep?
Did you think of the Bible? Did you know that God actually says “Fear Not” 365 times in the Bible. 365 times. Literally. Keep reading it gets better.
Would it be too much to venture to say that we conveniently have not just a reminder, but an order, to be courageous? To trust God. To move forward into the unknown each and every one of the 365 days of the year with confidence knowing we have been assured by our great and almighty Father that there is nothing to be afraid of. He is telling us that He. Is. In. Control. 365 times. Maybe we should pay attention to that…. maybe “fear not” is a resolution itself.
After all, the key to change is to let go of fear….
…And to grow we have to change.
And to be more Christ-like we have to grow.
And to be obedient we have to be more Christ-like.
And to desire obedience we have to trust God.
And to trust God we have to let. go. of. fear.
So fear not this new year. Go into 2017 and know that God has given you the gift of protection, all you have to do is accept it with faith and BE COURAGEOUS.
