As you’re about to step into the new year, make sure that you’re leaving behind anything from the past that keeps you from moving ahead. Say good-bye to the things you didn’t understand, any offense you’re hanging on to, anger and bitterness that lingers. Say good-bye to always having to be right and being argumentative, sarcastic, critical, and seeing the worst. Say good-bye to guilt and regrets and dysfunctions. Say good-bye to a wrong self-image, to feeling inferior, and not good enough. Say good-bye to any relationships that you know are wrong and causing you to compromise.
This is a new day that leads into a new year. Start embracing who God says you are. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. You are a masterpiece. You’re forgiven and redeemed. God has something better ahead. The favor on your life will take you where you couldn’t go on your own. New doors are going to open to new levels, new relationships, healings, freedom, and breakthroughs. It’s going to be a bountiful, abundant, flourishing year.
