Fresh Start - Focus On The Prize

Like Job, we can receive a fresh start following hard times. One way in which we can "start over" again is to put the things of the past behind us. How do we do this? Let us consider two steps today.

First, we need to keep looking ahead- not where we are now but where we should be- where we will be yet future, God gives us a new beginning everyday- a chance to start afresh to be everything  God wants us to be. As we look ahead, we should always anticipate the imminent return of Jesus Christ .

Second, we need to focus on the prize- ultimately, this prize entails being accepted of Christ when we see Him face to face! 

Paul exhort us to "press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Jesus Christ. This involves vigorous, concentrated pursuit, and press toward the mark denotes the reaching of a goal, and to reach a goal requires active, focused discipline .

Consider this new year as a fresh start. "Desire fellowship with Him more , Repent of sin and confess those things that are hindering your fellowship with Him . Put behind you the things of the past. As you do so, God will bless you abundantly.
