Guiding Scripture: Acts 3:19-23


🔴 Happy New Year!

Rather than giving so much focus on making resolutions, perhaps we should spend more time seeking restoration!
Resolutions are decrees, promises, determinations, purposes, tenacities, steadfastness, and firmness to commit to a specific goal or idea.
Restoration means refurbishment, reinstatement, renovation, repair, renewal, and rebuilding.
Repentance is required for both and, in so many ways, co-exists with each other. To change, we first must need to know that we need to change; otherwise, what would be the point? When we repent, we turn from doing what has not been the most productive or useful to a better solution. 
Receive the Salvation of The Lord Jesus Christ while you still have time. No one knows except God when He will return. Why put His invitation to come to Him off for another day? Don’t we know what tomorrow will bring for us?  
         ARE you ready to receive God today? Will you ask Him to come into your heart?


Let us Pray: Lord, we thank you for allowing us to see another year, another opportunity to serve you by serving others. Thank you, heavenly Father, for all your blessings and protection with the provisions you have given us. We pray for your healing for this land as we repent and turn from our wicked ways and humble ourselves in obedience to you and your purpose for us. We appreciate and declare our love for them and for you, Dear Lord, as they and we too want so much to be Holy as you are Holy. Amen

    Welcome to day 1, and thank you for participating. This is a community effort and a resource for those seeking to network with Christ-followers globally. Each day we hope to set aside time to pray, meditate, and intercede on others’ behalf. May we be diligently intentional with our study and ask what God would have us receive.

    In Genesis 1-2, God reminds us that He created an excellent and useful earth that He affirms and sustains. As a manifestation of God’s spiritual personality and moral likeness, we are charged with the care of this earth.

    Proverbs 1:5 “Let the wise hear and increase in learning,
    and the one who understands obtain guidance.”

    As we continue to develop an understanding of God’s cosmic divine nature and that wisdom ignites our self-awareness, may we proceed to seek Him in thought, speech, and behavior. At the same time, navigate through this life with the cross in view.
