Daily Bread 1/2/2024


Daily Bread – January 2, 2024 (The Third Day – Genesis 1:9-13) Isaiah 43:19 – Behold, I make all things new! Now it will spring up, shall you not know it? Surely, I open a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Leave The Past Behind & Lay Hold Of The Heavenly Vision Faith in the promises of God is how we will step into our future and live today in the Kingdom of God! If we allow the trials and failures of the past to turn our hearts from the expectation we once had in God, then we must face the fact that the Word of God has been overthrown in our lives. Doubt and unbelief are the forces of hell that have come out against our faith, and we must deal with them as such. If we allow the forces of doubt and unbelief to overwhelm our lives, then there is no moving forward – but rather, only a staggering about in the torments of the past. Condemnations and discouragements are the heroes of darkness, and unless you put your trust in God, they will confine you to an eternal prison of darkness. It is time that we end our compromises with failure and mediocrity, and step into the certainty of our call to greatness in God! No matter how many situations and circumstances of the past say, “It is not so,” we must turn to the Word of God and say, “It is!” We must forget those things which are behind, and reach for those things which are before us in God – we must press on! (Philippians 3:13-14). Let us see Jesus and no longer ourselves. Let us lay hold on the Heavenly vision. No matter what things may come to stop us, we must not be moved (Hebrews 12:2; Ephesians 6:12; 1 Timothy 6:12; 1 Peter 5:10; Colossians 2:7; and Matthew 7:24-25; Psalm 1:3; Jeremiah 17:8) Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
