New Attitude...To Rise, Run and Reign

This is the day the which
the Lord has brought about,
we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24

Welcome to a New Dawn, A New Day and a New Year, a New Season of untold possibilities and realities!!!

The verse above encourages us to make the right choice at the start of each day; a positive choice to "be glad and rejoice in every single day", to "rejoice and be glad in this new year" and to "be glad and rejoice in this new season we have stepped into".

The verse is further teaching us to embrace embrace an attitude of possibilities which declares "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" as we are taught to declare in Philippians 4:13, which reads "I can do all things through Christ[a] who strengthens me... NKJ. The Amplified explains further and it reads "I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who [a]infuses inner strength into me; I am [b]self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency]."

To be GLAD means to show or cause joy and pleasure

To REJOICE means to feel joyful; to be delighted

Developing a positive attitude and approach to life can be tough, especially when things around us seem to be the same as it was in 2008, but we must look beyond our physical eyes, for even though on the surface it looks like things have not changed, look closely, you will see that God is doing a new thing as he declares in Isaiah 43:16, 18 - 19, which reads "16 This is what the LORD says— he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters, Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. 19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland".

Ask God to open your eyes and understanding to see and understand the beauty of the new season you are in.

“Our attitude determines our altitude”

On that note, I encourage us all to start positively well. This year, is a journey we have to make whether we like it or not; but with God's help and his grace, we will start well and finish strong - One step a time.

I encourage us all to embrace gladness, Joy and thanksgiving as we step out into this new year, this new season. With a positive nature and outlook, move forward in hope, faith, declaring that there are "no impossibilities within your realities", as you navigate your way through the roads of 2009.

I encourage you to put on a positive stance, reside firmly within God's will to RISE, RUN AND REIGN in God's wisdom, strength and glory; making him famous along your way.

I leave you with this piece, enjoy...

Rise, Run and Reign
With thanksgiving and praise,
sing a song of gratitude to God
for a new season filled with new meanings

Step into a new beginning
with each day you've been given
make it a victorious experience
and your testimonies a profound witness

Tap into un-explored possibilities
use and distill all gifts and abilities
therein lies solutions to
this world's difficulties

Run in God's strength
Rise up in faith and hope
Reign in God's wisdom and glory
making the King famous
along your way... all through season

Much Love
