Deep reflection by Torben as he considers 2022. What God has been able to achieve with this man and his family once he surrendered control to God is remarkable. Make sure you watch the video when you have time to reflect on your own life and the extent of your commitment to our Lord and Saviour. Let me also give you several appropriate Scriptures to reflect on as well.
“But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.” Romans 13:14
“I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:1-2
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” Romans 15:13
We often see the verse “I can do all things through Him that strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 however, rarely do we see the verses that immediately precede it.
“Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.“Philippians 4:11-13
