Happy New Year !!!

Happy New Year !!! God has blessed us to see another year that was not promised to us! As we enter a new year, we should grasp those lessons that God equipped us with and apply them to our 2012 trials and triumphs. The circumstances and situations we had to endure were spiritual checkpoints that were essential for our growth. God keeps us at stand stills until He is sure we understand how we got ourselves into the problem, we recognize the affects of it, and to teach us that we are to lean on Him and not our own understanding. Don't grow discouraged when 2011 enemies and setbacks come at you, the Bible tells us in James 1:2, to count it all joy when we fall into various trials. In this New Year, expect God to throw you into pit stops. Walk by your faith and not by your natural sight so that when the various trials do occur, you are already equipped with the whole armor of God and His Word to bring you out of each trap the enemy sets for you. God assures us that He will bring us through and out of every trial. Secondly, it's never too late to separate yourself from people who don't have your best interest at heart. The Bible says from the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. Take what others say to you and about you at face value and be mindful of whom you give access to in 2012. Focus on the quality not quantity of friends. We only need 2 or 3 people in agreement with us for God to move in our lives. When Job faced his affliction, he had 3 friends who came to see about him and the Bible says they had an appointment together to come see Job. The friends' appointment represents they were "in order" and weren't coming just to be nosey. Ensure your inner circle are in order and are on one accord in terms of your well-being, your situation, and are willing to go the extra mile for you when you have to endure. Lastly, simply trust God in this New Year! The provisions have already been made and He is not slack concerning the promises He has for you. Be Blessed!
