How Should I Start the Year?

(English) In this message Ps Richard talks about how we should start this year in these 2 points:

(Isaiah 43:19 NIV) See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

(Genesis 28:10-11 NLT) Meanwhile, Jacob left Beersheba and traveled toward Haran. (11) At sundown he arrived at a good place to set up camp and stopped there for the night. Jacob found a stone to rest his head against and lay down to sleep.

(Genesis 28:12-13a NLT) As he slept, he dreamed of a stairway that reached from the earth up to heaven. And he saw the angels of God going up and down the stairway. (13) At the top of the stairway stood the LORD, and he said, ‘I am the LORD, the God of your grandfather Abraham, and the God of your father, Isaac.’

(Romans 8:1 NLT) “So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.”

(Genesis 28:13b NLT) “The ground you are lying on belongs to you. I am giving it to you and your descendants.”

(Genesis 28:14 NLT) “Your descendants will be as numerous as the dust of the earth! They will spread out in all directions-to the west and the east, to the north and the south. And all the families of the earth will be blessed through you and your descendants.” 

(Genesis 28:15 NLT) “What's more, I am with you, and I will protect you wherever you go. One day I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have finished giving you everything I have promised you."

1.Build the Habit of Journaling

(Jeremiah 15:16 NLT) “When I discovered your words, I devoured them. They are my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name, O LORD God of Heaven’s Armies.”

(Genesis 28:16-17 NLT) “Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, ‘Surely the LORD is in this place, and I wasn't even aware of it!’ (17) But he was also afraid and said, ‘What an awesome place this is! It is none other than the house of God, the very gateway to heaven!’"

2.Appreciate the Awesomeness of God’s House!
