Topic: The Demands of a New Beginning [January 1, 2017]

Scripture: Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19.

Thought For The Day: Every new beginning demands an appreciation of the last phase.

Our God is a God of new beginning (Revelation 22:13). He gives everyone a fresh beginning in order to grow in life. Whenever we are confronted with a new beginning such as the beginning of a new year, there are certain things God wants us to do in order to live profitably. These include;

1. Appreciation: Every new beginning demands an appreciation of the last phase. There is a need to appreciate God’s Mercies for where you are coming from because many people were unable to cross over to this New Year.

2. Setting of vision and goals: January, being the first month of the year, should begin with the setting of visions and goals for the year. One of the miseries of life is aimlessness. What are you meant to pursue this year?

3. Evaluation of progress and result: Evaluate the progress you have made in life so far in order to set proper goals. Review your goals and achievement for last year.

4. Action: After setting your current goals and vision, take steps to achieve them.

I prophesy a turnaround in your life this year, in Jesus’ Name.

Remember this: Every new beginning demands an appreciation of the last phase.


1. Appreciate God for a successful cross-over into the New Year.

2. Set achievable goals this year and actively seek to achieve them.

Prayer: O LORD, I appreciate You for a new beginning. Help me LORD, to understand Your purpose for my life this year, in Jesus’ Name.
