The average person may see anywhere from 3,000 to 5,000 advertisements in a day. A good ad emotionally stimulates the need to buy or at least investigate the advertised product. And fills a void of a person’s wants and needs ... I need that. I would look good in that. This is the bulk of the messages geared toward us especially during Christmas. Grinch who stole Christmas said it best...Christmas doesn't come from a store, maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more...Christmas changed everything. A Baby was born. Christ the Lord. Give Him the name Jesus, because He will save people from their sins. Matthew 1:22 All this happened to bring about what the Lord had said through the prophet 23 The virgin will be pregnant. She will have a son, and they will name him Immanuel, which means God is with us. The virgin had a baby.
If you believe that Jesus was born of a virgin than you might as well believe all the promises in the Word. God is with you. God is always on your side. Whether up or down or strong or weak or full or empty. Miracles are waiting for you. He birthed dreams in you that are ready to be unleashed. Deuteronomy 31:6 TLB Be strong! Be courageous! Do not be afraid of them! For the Lord your God will be with you. He will neither fail you nor forsake you. Christmas changed everything....Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts. God is working behind the scenes right now, arranging for our lives to flourish in Him. Christmas Survival Guide offering 3 essentials to be prepared for anything this Christmas and beyond. #1 Openness to go deeper in your spiritual journey. Open to change. Open to more of God in your life. #2 Willingness to be raw and transparent with you. With God. With Others. With Faith. #3 Commitment to prioritize your time to nourish your spirit with Gods Word & prayer. Every person should have a regular check-up on their thought processes. Re-educate the mind to biblical thinking. Because if not ...we default to wondering ...Wondering ...if God is there. Wondering ...If He really cares. Wondering ... If you can have peace? Christmas changed everything....Acts 17:28 CEV and he gives us the power to live, to move, and to be who we are. When a believer constitutes biblical thinking ... faith increases. When faith increases it transform defeats into victories. Frustrations into hope.
