Hello everyone, I do pray that you all will have a blessed and happy new year of 2019! May GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS always keep watch over you and all of your loved ones wherever you all maybe on GODS earth!
I want to share something with you about starting your new year off with joy and peace. We need to think about the different people we come across in our travels from year to week to days and so on.
During your course of the day , of any day in your life you will meet a negative person who just seems to maybe even enjoy being negative. These people we should pray for avoid and move on.
You may have even tried to show them about being negative is not good way to be, by being positive. You know, telling them good things, showing them the blessings in life and all they seem to come up with is a complaint or something negative. as if to turn their backs on joy.
I know many people who are suffering with this negative mindset, and I do feel sorry for them even though I do know this is a choice they have made to be.
Anyone can feel depressed at any given time, but to dwell on it is not good. It will keep you down. Until only the LORD to throw a rope to them up and out into a wonderful perfect blessing!
King David in the Bible who wrote the Psalms dealt with negativity and by reading the Psalms you do see how much he did love GOD and depended on GOD to pull him up. GOD did just that, and he always did.
You see the trails he went through in his time of life is no different from what we as the people of today go through right now. He had his haters too, that sought after him to destroy him. When you are a loving child of GOD this is what happens every single day when you have to work or be around those who are un GODLY and hate GOD. They will see that there is something different about you and will hate you too.
1.Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
Even if you have recently been saved and now love GOD and HIS son JESUS, those people you once called as a friend will now turn against you. Hating you, because now you are different to them. They can sense it in you. You are now covered with the blood of JESUS and do have Him in your heart.
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
What you will need to do now is to see that were you were is not where you needed to be. Those people who you once associated with will not want you around them. For their heart is not like yours now since you have accepted JESUS as your savior.
Prayer, faith , trust, understanding and making GOD your 1st best friend in your life who is THE perfect best friend to have and HIS son JESUS is 2nd because he is the son who came after the FATHER GOD in heaven. That’s how it is for me, and I am very comfortable with that too. You will see you can not depend on people, or things of the world to find your joy, for it is in the LORD. You will never be alone of feel alone when you will see that you have two very, very, very good loving friends with you at all times in your life.
Here is a site with even more scripture to read that is encouraging. For we follow the lead of JESUS our savior.
John 15:18-27 King James Version (KJV)
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.
22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Please be safe as you may choose to celebrate the new year, keep GOD 1st in all you do. Blessed as you read this blog and GODs scripture included, and pass forward the blessing to others to read as well.
