Silent No More! This month's topic, "Give Thanks Every Day!"


Just like the year 2017 is coming to an end, never to be seen again, let the old ways and habits come to an end as well.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:2)

Do not let the world squeeze you into its own mold, but allow the Lord to mold and shape you, O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as the potter does with its clay vessel, saith the Lord.

Stay focused on the path that I have set before thee.  Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.(Romans 6:13)

Overcome the world by having your mind transformed to think like God thinks.  Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? (Romans 6:16)

As you do that, you will find yourself changing.  You will find yourself living like a world overcomer, because every Scripture you read you agree with and purpose in your heart to act on it and not just ponder on it.

Have a Blessed and Joyous New Year and may God's Spirit of Obedience increase within you for 2018 that the promises of God will manifest and come to fruition for your life.  Shalom!
