Each New Day

Each new day we have opportunity to do good things. We can help a neighbor or watch the grandkids for our children. Smile at a stranger who might be having a down day. We can seek God’s face in all we do. We are able to read His holy bible and from it to draw inspiration for good. We should always seek to copy what God is doing. If we see His hand at work we should join in and assist in any way we can.

It is important not to let guilt or shame prevent you from doing good things. The enemy will try to make you feel bad about past mistakes. You can stand against the enemy with the full armor of God.

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Which means to be guided by the truth and to want to do what is right and to be at peace wherever you go and trust in the Faith God has given you to protect you against the enemy and know that you are saved and know God’s Word in your heart so that you are always ready and pray in the Spirit always keeping guard for your fellow Christians.

Many times when you first wake up in the morning a thought will come to you which should guide your whole day. Perhaps it is an admonition from the Spirit who gently nudges you toward the right thing to do with your time and resources. If a person comes to mind be sure to pray for them and call them if you get the opportunity.
