As we begin a new year, it’s wonderful to know that God makes us new!
We are fearfully and wonderfully made, says Psalm 139:14, and Genesis 1:27 tells us we are made in God’s image.
Sadly, sin interferes with His perfect plan—but when you give your life to Jesus and trust in His forgiveness and grace, you are transformed. You’re not changed into something completely different from yourself; rather, He makes you what you were originally created to be. You truly become you!
With this transformation come the good things that He has in store for you and the good works that He has for you to do. As Ephesians 2:10 says, For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
These plans are made uniquely for you by an all-wise God. They will show you His path, give you hope, fill you with purpose, and satisfy the desires of your heart.
The world wants people to think there’s no hope and no future. But in God’s kingdom, that’s not true!
You are His beloved child, fearfully and wonderfully made in His image. He takes you from an ash heap, puts a crown on your head, and makes you part of His royal priesthood. That is God’s truth, and that is what He wants for you.
So start this new year by praying, “God, I want everything that You have for me. I want to fulfill my purpose and all that You have laid out for my life. I don’t want to miss out on anything. I want every good thing that you have for me in Christ Jesus.”
When you pray that with all of your heart, He will answer. God bless you!
