New Beginnings

Are you beginning a new job, business or ministry?
Do you want to start the New Year right?

If you do, follow these principles from the Word of God:

Ask God What He Wants You To Do

Paul had a new beginning on his journey to Damascus because one minute he was healthy Saul with a high profile job receiving orders from the council of elders (Acts 22:5) and in the next, he had fallen to the ground and become blind. (Acts 22:11)

Saul then asked, “What shall I do Lord?” (Acts 22:10) and Jesus told him to go to Damascus and he would be given further instructions.

Therefore at the beginning of each New Year or new venture or season in your life, pray and ask, “What shall I do Lord?” (Acts 22:10) so that you can know what He wants you to do.
What shall I do Lord? (Acts 22:10)


Sanctify Yourself
When the Israelites were preparing to cross the River Jordan and begin a new life in their Promised Land, Joshua said to them, "Sanctify yourselves because tomorrow God will do wonders among you." (Joshua 3:5)

This wonder that Joshua was expecting God to do for the Israelites was helping them cross the flooded River Jordan (Joshua 3:15) without a boat.

Therefore if you are expecting God to do wonders for you as you enter the New Year or begin a new venture, sanctify yourself by doing the following:

1. Confess your sins
Confess all your sins and ask God to forgive you. Ask Him to also remind you of the sins you have forgotten so that you can confess them and ask for His forgiveness.

2. Obey the commandments
Go through the 10 commandments and evaluate your life to see if you are obeying them. If you are not, confess your sin, make a conscious decision to obey them and ask God to help you.

Commandment #1. You shall not have other gods.

2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

To keep this commandment decide that you will only pray and worship the God of the Bible through His Son Jesus Christ.

Focus all your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual efforts on keeping this commandment and once you have succeeded move on to the next commandment.

Commandment #2. You shall not make idols.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

To keep this commandment remove all images and statues of other gods from your home, car, business and other properties that you control.

Focus all your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual efforts on keeping this commandment and once you have succeeded move on to the next commandment.

Commandment #3. You shall not use the name of the Lord your God in vain.

Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

To keep this commandment stop using phrases that involve the name of God or His Son Jesus when you are exclaiming or cussing or any other purpose that does not involve praying or talking about God reverently.

Focus all your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual efforts on keeping this commandment and once you have succeeded move on to the next commandment.
