We pray you were found in the Lord’s House to start off a new year in Christian fellowship. We turned to James 4:7-10, “Commit to Spiritual Vision in 2014”. James shows us how to avoid flip flopping on decisions we have decided to make. We begin a new year making commitments that we need to keep. We start by relinquishing the year to resist the devil. You will never totally resist him. We must take a long hard look at all the wrong sin our life. Not the wrongs in others’ lives. We have to take ownership for Satan does not fear us.

To do this, we must resist the year and avoid the traps the devil sets. He knows our every weakness and never forgets. God forgets. Satan doesn’t. Avoid the temptations and don’t go near where they are because Satan will be there to remind you, and others, of what will make you fail. The answer is to rely on God with faith and focus. He didn’t move away, you did. We need quality time daily reading and praying and fellowshipping. If you have no desire to be around other Christians, then you have no desire to be around God for he tells us fellowshipping is nurturing.

We must also repent this year. Clean our hands and our hearts of sin. Never fail to clean out your heart and mind. God will help you, if you only let Him. Finally, we must restrain this year. It is not about us but Him. Restrain from our pride. God gives grace to the humble. Restrain from the power for God resists the proud. It is pride that sends more people to hell. They are afraid to set out and accept Jesus as their savior. Don’t let it prevent you from knowing Him or having a greater relationship with Him.
