JOHN HAGEE DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR 27 DECEMBER 2021, MONDAY
SCRIPTURE: Philippians 3:13-14
…forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Here at the end of the year, many of us may look back on a year marred by grief and disappointment.
Jesus understands the longing and necessity for new beginnings. For every person that comes to Him in brokenness, He washes away the old and makes a brand-new creation. He continues to mold us into vessels He can use.
Consider the man lying by the Pool of Bethesda who had been ill for 38 years. When Jesus asked if he wanted to be healed, his despair was evident.
Jesus gave three commands: Rise, take up your bed, and walk! If the man had remained on the mat, it could have tied him to his pessimistic state. He needed to get up and get moving forward.
Perhaps, this year’s events have left you hurting and longing for relief. Hope, help, and healing are found in Jesus alone. His mercies flow anew every morning.
Leave your burdens at the feet of Jesus. Cast all your cares on Him because He cares for you. Let go of the things that weigh you down and prevent you from running your race well. Forget those things behind and walk into the new year with head held high.
Heavenly Father, You know the wounds this year has left on my spirit. I bring these burdens to You. Heal me. Help me to shake off the shackles of the past. Let me walk into the new year free and full of hope. I press towards the prize by the power of Jesus…amen.
