Resolve to Embrace What God is Doing For Us

HAPPY NEW YEAR from all of us at Robinson Outdoor Products.

Did you make any ‘resolutions’ for this New Year? Many folks commit to getting in shape, losing weight, eating better, and the list goes on.

Some of the resolutions I hear from Christians include reading through the Bible, memorizing Bible verses, having a consistent quiet time, witnessing, and the list goes on.

When I stop to think of what our Abba Father might like from us, I am reminded of the opening verses in Romans 12 in The Message Bible, which goes like this:

“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life – your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking around life – and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.”

Read that last sentence again. Perhaps at the top of our list of resolutions, or perhaps the only item on the list should be “to embrace what Abba has done and is doing for us”. If that indeed is the best thing we can do for Abba, let’s do that one thing.

Embrace His Fatherhood, embrace being adopted, being a Saint, being His beloved, being a new creature, and being filled with His life. Give them all a big welcoming hug and as you draw them near, consider them, ponder them and relish them. Feel His embrace, and as you do, embrace him right back and thank Him. And remember that all these Truths, and more flow from His heart to you.
