I like new stuff. I like the smell of a new car (which I haven’t experienced in a number of years). I like new clothes. I like new challenges.
Last night, millions of people around the world celebrated the coming of a new year. While the clock turned to midnight, they raised their beverages in the air and sang about old acquaintances and old times. Some are even making new resolutions and commitments for 2014. A new effort to lose weight for some, a new exercise plan for others; some will even attempt to quit smoking or drinking.
God has given you a new day today. He offers you a new life, a new beginning. He is in the business of making new things. In your own power, you can do some great things. In the power of Jesus Christ, however, you can do ALL things. (Philippians 4:13). In fact, with God’s power, nothing is impossible. (Luke 1:37)
This New Year is a fresh new opportunity for you to follow God. With His help you can do great things and experience His blessings. He wants to make things new in your life.
