New Year Verses

(I was searching for some Christian websites and came up with some really good ones. This post is a copy from christianity.about.com, one such site. I thought it was a great way to promote Christian sites. I do not know them and they don't know me either. I guess it's better then spreading sex sites, phishing and spamming.)

Begin the New Year meditating on these encouraging Bible verses chosen to inspire a fresh new walk with God and a deeper commitment to living the Christian faith.

New Birth - A Living Hope

    1 Peter 1:3
    Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

    Hope for the Future

      Jeremiah 29:11
      "For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

    A New Creation

      2 Corinthians 5:17
      Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

    A New Heart

      Ezekiel 36:25-27
      "Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols. And I will give you a new heart with new and right desires, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony heart of sin and give you a new, obedient heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so you will obey my laws and do whatever I command.

    Forgetting the Past

      Philippians 3:13-14
      No, dear brothers and sisters, I am still not all I should be, but I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us up to heaven.

    Learning from Past Mistakes

      Hebrews 12:10-11
      Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

    Wait on the Lord

      Psalm 37:7
      Be still in the presence of the LORD, and wait patiently for him to act. Don't worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes.
      Isaiah 40:31
      Yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.

    God's Timing is Perfect

      Ecclesiastes 3:11
      He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

    Each New Day is Special

      Lamentations 3:22-24
      The unfailing love of the LORD never ends! By his mercies we have been kept from complete destruction. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day. I say to myself, "The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!"
