It’s a new year and it feels like anything is possible
There is an amazing feeling that each new year brings
In Isaiah 43:19 it says
See, I am doing a new thing
The first thing you have to do is see what God is doing
What is God trying to do in your life in 2012?
God is the God of the new thing
He wants to do a new thing in your life
Let him do it
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
He wants to bring the new thing now
Are you perceiving that
Be ready and willing in 2012 for what God is wanting to do
I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
As we are faithful to God he will cause a breakthrough to come in our lives. The things that seemed so difficult for us are going to become areas of blessing.
Be faithful to God and allow him to out work his promise
2012 could be the greatest year of your life!
Pursue God and his purpose and discover what God has in mind for you
It’s got to be good!

In Ephesians 4 Paul writes
I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received
This is a great challenge from Paul and I get 3 keys out of this
1st key – It’s not a mild request or a suggestion from Paul, but heartfelt Plea – that we would live this amazing life for Christ
Paul is pretty convinced of the benefits of living this life – and he really wants us to step into this life
2nd key – For each of us to realize we have a high calling from God
One of the great revelations of your life – is that God has called you
We find it so easy to offload it to someone else – someone more prepared
No – the high call of God is on you – it is a beautiful thing and you can do it
You have been given all you need to complete it
How amazing – that you have been called by God
God’s call will make you – I have been made by his call on my life
That revelation stunned me – “God you have called me?” – “why?”
The answer to that question will floor you!!
Because he loves you – because you are his son or daughter – and dad wants you to help with the family business
The call of God will make you!
3rd key – Paul urges us to live a life worthy of the high call of God
Many people in this world wouldn’t throw their lives away if they really knew the call that was on them
The point is to understand that you have this high call from God and to endeavor to live up to it
It will lift you – you will not be the same person
Start today – start living for the call on your life
If you don’t know what it is – make it your first priority to find out
So many in this generation have run for the call
Don’t run from the call – Live up to the call!
