I have a good idea for the new year, instead of refusing, shrugging and closing your ears, listen to the word of the Lord. We can not be perfect but we can try to do what God asks of us.

Zechariah 7:8-11
Then the word of the Lord came to Zechariah, saying,
“Thus says the Lord of hosts:
‘Execute true justice,
Show mercy and compassion
Everyone to his brother.
Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless,
The alien or the poor.
Let none of you plan evil in his heart
Against his brother.’
“But they refused to heed, shrugged their shoulders, and stopped their ears so that they could not hear.

Everyone talks about it, but nobody can do a thing to change it. The weather is God's and if He wants the ice to melt, it will. How arrogant we humans are to try to take credit or blame for changes in the climate.

Psalm 147:15-18
He sends out His command to the earth;
His word runs very swiftly.
He gives snow like wool;
He scatters the frost like ashes;
He casts out His hail like morsels;
Who can stand before His cold?
He sends out His word and melts them;
He causes His wind to blow, and the waters flow.

Comfort and joy! An ancient prophesy, which came true when Christ was born, and is true today. "The Mighty One, will save;" " He will quiet you with His love."

Zephaniah 3:17

The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.”

Do you happen to be stumbling around in the stress of preparing for Christmas? Here's a prayer for you.

Jude 1:24-25
Now to Him who is able to keep 
you from stumbling,
And to present you faultless
Before the presence of His glory 
with exceeding joy,

To God our Savior,
Who alone is wise,
Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,
Both now and forever.

Overcoming ego, overcoming bitterness, overcoming heart sickness, these are possible because of the love of God. We can overcome the world if we believe.

1 John 5:3-5
For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

How is your day looking? What if today were the day? Are you ready?

But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
