When a marathon is about to begin, you see everyone lined up ready for the race ahead. You see people stretching, eating their bananas, preparing their water, tightening up their shoes, and getting mentally ready for the race ahead. The preparation for the race doesn’t begin after the whistle blows and they start running. The preparation begins sometimes months before.
And that is how the year must begin for you. You can not begin working towards a better year in February, March, April or June. What has to be done, has to be done now. The Bible says,
“ In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1
You see, God created from the beginning. First He created the heavens and then He created the earth. But He did not wait, He created. And you must begin to create now. Go after opportunities, fix things in your family, take care of your health, and most of all invest in your spiritual life. You need to start NOW.
Make this first month of the year a productive month, and you will have a truly blessed 2019.
May the God of the Bible Bless You
