DAY ONE READING:
Genesis 1:1-2:25, Mathew 1:1-2:12, Psalm 1:1-6, Proverbs 1:1-6
As I read and meditated today one of the things that stood out to me was how God rested on the 7th day and blessed it. So many of us know how to be busy, but we haven't learned how to rest, especially how to rest in the Lord. This year, I will put into practice the proper balance of work, rest, and play time. Like my son said last week, even God rested:)
In Mathews, the bible states how Joseph did not sleep with his wife until baby Jesus was born (Matthew 1:24). Now today, from the ministers in the pulpit to the guy in the club, many of these males claim that a man practicing abstinence is impossible. But it's such a blessing to know that there are men like Joseph who allow God to keep them pure until their wedding night like NBA basketball player A.C. Green. All things are possible through Christ Jesus, and He will always have men and women who are willing to live for Him and be His chosen people!
DO YOU WANT TO BE SUCCESSFUL THIS YEAR IN 2014 AND BEYOND? WELL THE ANSWER IS RIGHT IN PSALMS 1. Meditate on God's word day and night and you will become like a tree planted in water and every thing that you touch will prosper! Let's do it BIG for Jesus in 2014 and Beyond!
