“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Gen. 1:1 KJV).
The secret of living a life on earth full of all-round victory, prosperity, joy, and peace is God. He was there at the beginning of it all to create the heavens and the earth.
Many believers do not realize that it is possible to be born again and be heading to heaven, yet not have God involved in the daily running of their lives. Accepting Jesus as Savior and Lord guarantees heaven for you. But whether you, as an individual, will be a success or failure here on earth is determined by how much God is involved in your daily life. If you start your year with God, you will set your life on an upward course for abundant living in your spiritual life, finances, health, career, relationships, and all things. God is the beginning of anything that will prove to be good and perfect in your life this year.
Would heaven and earth have existed without God from the scripture above? What “beginnings” are in your life today?
APPLY THE WORD!
The Word comes alive when we act on it in faith. You begin 2017 today, so ask yourself: Is God is in this beginning with me? How can you let God begin something good in your health, finances, and relationships this year? God only takes what you hand over to Him, so give Him first place in all you do this year and January 1, 2017 will meet you with bliss!
Ask the Father to enable you to completely surrender to Him this year so that your life will glow with His light.
