GODLY FOCUS IN 2023!
Updated: Jan 1
Since we usually begin a New Year evaluating and setting goals, let's consider how we can deepen our intimacy with God during 2023.
Let’s determine that 2023 will be the year that we take loving God to the next level:
“Hear, O (YOUR NAME)! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one [the only God]! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and mind and with all your soul and with all your strength [your entire being]. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be [written] on your heart and mind.” (Deuteronomy 6:4-6 AMPC)
If you make resolutions consider some resolutions, changes, that are anchored in the Word of God.
Let’s resolve that:
This will not only impact us, but we will impact everyone we come in contact with.
We will begin the New Year with our hearts, minds, and souls focused on God.
We will be about our Father’s business.
We will not be easily offended.
We will be quick to forgive.
We will lead with love.
We will choose peace over strife.
People will see Jesus in us.
Our thoughts, words, and actions will reflect the heart of Jesus!
Lord, in 2023, help me to be where You want me to be, doing what You have called me to do. I don’t want to be distracted this year by doing good things and miss the God things You want me to do.
Let's focus on walking in love, no matter what.
I challenge you to make this faith confession daily based on 1st Corinthians 13:4-8a AMP:
"(YOUR NAME) love endures with patience and serenity, (YOUR NAME) love is kind and thoughtful, and is not jealous or envious; (YOUR NAME) love does not brag and is not proud or arrogant. (YOUR NAME) love is not rude; it is not self-seeking, it is not provoked [nor overly sensitive and easily angered]; (YOUR NAME) love does not take into account a wrong endured. (YOUR NAME) love does not rejoice at injustice, but rejoices with the truth [when right and truth prevail]. (YOUR NAME) love bears all things [regardless of what comes], believes all things [looking for the best in each one], hopes all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times], endures all things [without weakening]. (YOUR NAME) love never fails [it never fades nor ends].” (Personalized 1st Corinthians 13:4-8a AMP)
Be Encouraged! ❤
