Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

ANA MARIE B. CAS­TANEDA

This com­ing year ma­jor­ity of us are mak­ing a firm de­ci­sion to do or not to do some­thing or pop­u­larly known as New Year’s Res­o­lu­tions. The big­gest ben­e­fit of mak­ing a New Year’s Res­o­lu­tion is that it can mo­ti­vate you into tak­ing ac­tion; how­ever the best res­o­lu­tion that we can do is to ac­cept the true mes­sage of this sea­son the big JC Je­sus Christ as our per­sonal Sav­ior and lean on His prom­ises.

As elab­o­rated by a man of God (Ptr. Manny 2016) when he de­liv­ered the mes­sage of God here are some of God’s prom­ises that will surely lead us to live a happy and con­tent life.

1. God is with us: Matthew 1:23 (NIV); The vir­gin will con­ceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Im­manuel (which means “God with us”)

Isa­iah 9:6 (NIV ; For to us a Child is born, to us a son is given, and the gov­ern­ment will be on his shoul­ders. And he will be called Won­der­ful Coun­selor, Mighty God, Ev­er­last­ing Fa­ther, Prince of Peace.

2. God will not leave us nor for­sake us: He­brews 13:5b; be­cause God has said, “Never will I for­sake you.”

Joshua 1:5 (NIV); No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor for­sake you.

I leave you; never will

3. Je­sus is the way of the right­eous John 14:5-6(NIV) ; v5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are go­ing, so how can we know the way?” v6 Je­sus an­swered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the fa­ther ex­cept through me.

Ro­mans 8:35, 38-39 (NIV); v35 Who shall sep­a­rate us from the love of Christ? Shall trou­ble or hard­ship or per­se­cu­tion or famine or naked­ness or dan­ger or sword? v38 For I am con­vinced that nei­ther death nor life, nei­ther an­gels nor de­mons, nei­ther the present nor the fu­ture, nor any pow­ers, v39 nei­ther height nor depth, nor any­thing else in all cre­ation, will be able to sep­a­rate us from the love of God that is in Christ Je­sus our Lord.

4. God is with you all the way: Isa­iah 43:2(NIV); When you pass through the wa­ters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you abl aze.

Psalm 91:11(NIV); For he will com­mand his an­gels con­cern­ing you to guard in all your ways. Now that you know that God is with you, “BE STRONG”! He­brews13:5-6(NIV); v5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be con­tent with what you have, be­cause God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I for­sake you.” v6 So we say with con­fi­dence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mor­tals do to me?”
