You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

“Then out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of those who make merry; I will multiply them, and they shall not diminish; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small (despised).”  – Jeremiah 30:19

Someone might have called you as an outcast in the previous year. No one desired to stay with you and no one needed you at any instant. You might have been addicted to so many sinful weaknesses. You had no good to think and rejoice at the end of the previous year. You believe that this year will also bring no good. Do not get discouraged. 

Jesus Christ promises you that in this year you will have so much goodness and your heart will be filled with thanksgiving and your voice will be filled with gladness. You will not diminish and you will not be despised.

God will grant blessings and goodness to you in this New Year. People around you will be surprised when they see how God has blessed you from nothing to everything. You will testify God’s glory. Many have thought that your life had no good and you are finished. ‘You will be raised in front of them for My glory’, says Jesus Christ to you.

Bible says in 1 Samuel 2:8, “He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the beggar from the ash heap, to set them among princes and make them inherit the throne of glory...”

Once I heard a testimony about a person who is a researcher. He is a strong believer and He did everything according to God’s will. He worked in a reputed institution in India. He had a research lab in that institution. His projects were done in that lab and he had so many experimental setups in his lab. But one day his lab got burnt because of an accident and when he returned all that he could find was ash heap. Everything of his in that lab was burnt and he was broken. 

But yet he never lost his faith. God promised him that he will raise him. God blessed him according to His promise and He enabled him to setup the lab once again. Through that God blessed him with so many grants for his projects from government organizations and he became a good researcher. Now he is working as a head in a big organization. 

My dear young friends, your hopes might have also got burnt in the previous year. All that you see in your life might be ash heaps. Do not worry. Jesus Christ will raise you from the dust and ash heaps and He will set you stand among the princes. You will also inherit the throne of glory. You will be richly blessed. 

Your loved ones might have despised you and your heart’s feelings. Jesus Christ will never despise you and your desires. Get strengthened in God. You will not diminish. Jesus Christ loves you so much. This year will be a blessed year to you. God bless you.
