Grace for you today !
Christ in me, The Glorious Hope !
“Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 3:13-14 NKJV
My beloved of the Lord Jesus Christ, as we come to the end of this glorious year, we all should take the advice of Apostle Paul seriously. He knew for certain his identity in Christ Jesus. He always proclaimed his identity that he is the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus & he always sought for a fresh understanding of Christ’s Righteousness to reign in this life , eventhough he encountered a lot of trials and bad breaks.
But he did this one thing : forgetting the past and reaching forward toward God’s destiny for him. He realised two things while pursuing this ‘one thing’ : 1. There is no point dwelling in the past whether agonies or accomplishments whether stressful times or successful moments . 2. God has something awesome and more glorious in the future and need to press on towards the upward call.
My beloved, even so there is no point dwelling in past glories nor in the not-so-good 2022. One thing is for sure -Jesus Christ is Jehovah T’sidkenu and those who trust in Him will never be disappointed. His first miracle at Cana of Galilee when He turned water into wine was the best. So also, the best from God for you is yet to come! 2023 will usher in His very best for you!!
If you are struggling to let go the past, you can take great comfort from the life of Joseph in the book of Genesis. He testified saying, “For God has made me forget all my toil and all my father’s house.” and he named his son as *Manasseh. Genesis 41:51 . Today God is giving you “the gift of Manasseh”- the ability of forget and forgive . Receive this gift and declare that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Christ in you is the Glorious hope unfolding in 2023 ! Amen 🙏
I thank you for joining me every day of this year in the devotional. I bow down in worship and adoration to my only Saviour and Lord Jesus the Mashaich for inspiring me through His Holy Spirit every single day faithfully without failing.
Signing off for now and will sign in again by His amazing grace in 2023!
Praise Jesus Mashiach!
