Friday January 4th
For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.
The beginning of a new year has a way of causing many to focus on their future. While planning and preparation for your future is wise, you should take care to not let your focus on what is to come cause you to neglect the good that God has for you to do and experience right now. You are here to be about doing your Father’s work now, not just when ‘your time comes’. Jesus didn’t come and sit on His hands until it was time for Him to go to the cross, in fact, He did just the opposite. He showed us not only the benefit of His dying for us but the power that we could walk in upon His resurrection. What good can you be right now, right where you’re at? Who’s life can you touch? No one is guaranteed tomorrow and the world desperately needs to experience God’s goodness through His people. Be about doing good today and He will use that to establish your tomorrow.
