‘Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and
One thing is for sure. God won’t change. He won’t suddenly deny us and think this year they’re not going to get away with it. Or, I’ve had enough of them!
We don’t know what a year will hold for us. We will have ambitions. Things we want to do. Places we want to go. People we’ll want to see more of. There will be certain things we’ll want to change in our lives like eating healthier and exercising more. There may even be renewed energy in how we approach work. The Christmas break can clear our heads a little and give us a more positive approach to work.
But, if you’re anything like me, all that may probably only last a few weeks and then the usual will kick in. The same patterns and the old habits. Almost like it’s not a New Year at all. It may as well be last year or the year before.
But while God remains unchanged we can change our relationship with Him. It may be a cliché but if you’ve never read the bible from front to back then it’s possible to do so throughout the year by receiving a verse everyday. Scripture really is the only way to keep in touch with God and with all the issues we face day-to-day, I’m always amazed how the verse can somehow relate to them. My very first post was about us working for God not an organization. The organization is the vehicle for us to work for God. If we truly are working for God then we need the work handbook available to us every day. The Bible.
You can sign up for a daily verse at www.bible-reading.com. I like the way scripture is ordered. Let us make 2013 a year when God changes us and not us trying to do it alone.
Happy New Year and God Bless!
Heavenly Father, we ask you to be with us this year. Give us the tools necessary to represent you in our workplace and guide us skillfully through any challenges and difficulties we face so we may have a closer relationship with you – Amen!
