I believe that there are universal principles that have the ability to make a big difference in each of our lives, if we will work to put the principles into practice. Reading the principles is a start, but only a start. Knowing the principles are good, but not good enough. Talking about the principles is heading in the right direction, but there has to be more than talk. We need action, because the principles will work, if we will work the principles.
Jim Rohn once said: “You can’t hire someone else to do your push ups!” Each of us have hard work that we need to do physically, mentally and spiritually, if we are going to experience the fulfillment of success and victory that we were created for.
Each of us have been blessed with the opportunity to live extraordinary lives, that our Creator allows us to share with one another. It’s only an idea, until you put it into practice. Ideas thought in our heads produce possibilities, while principles practices in our living produce growth.
Here is the very simple truth: Work the principles and the principles will work for you! Learn the principles and then put them into practice and watch as amazing things begin to manifest in your life. The Bible is full of instruction and direction for living the fulfilled life, but the instruction and direction has to be about more than facts and knowledge that we have put inside our heads. It has to be truth that we believe in our hearts that motivates us to live a different kind of life, day after day, after day.
During the next year, we are going to go on a journey to try to learn the principles and while we are learning them, also put them into practice in a consistent and persistent way. I want to invite you to join me at Grace Place each Sunday morning at 11 AM to learn about the principles and be challenged and encouraged to put them into practice.
I really believe that this New Year is all about a New You – the YOU that your Creator created you to be. So let me encourage you right here and now to do three things in getting ready to take this journey:
1.) Think about and decide that you want the better life that you were created for.
2.) Believe that God desires for you to have it and because of what He has done for you, you deserve it! (That’s what GRACE is all about!)
3.) Get ready to put the principles into practice in the new year, so you can grow into the new you!
You can do this and the amazing and fun part is that we get to do this together! Live blessed, it’s a great way to give your Creator glory…
