Happy New Year

What is your new year resolution? What do you want most in 2015?

I read today from Isaiah 43:19 ‘See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up, do you not perceive it?’

Can you discern what new thing God is doing in your life? Whatever it is God has planned for you in 2015 it will be for your well-being. Trust in him, our Emmanuel.

Have you read the story of the nativity recently? If you have, you will be struck by the absence of a donkey. Nowhere does it feature in the birth of Jesus yet it appears in every nativity play. What a shock!!

It got me thinking. What things have slipped into our faith that we have invented? It could be a rule or something we do in order to please God but there is no evidence of in the bible.

As we begin the new year,what things do we need to throw out of our lives in order to begin a new year afresh with God?
