Four Steps to a Fresh Start

Steps2020

// Kenneth W. Hagin

LET'S FACE IT. No one is perfect. When you make a mistake, the enemy often tries to tell you that it's over! He wants you to throw in the towel. We all mess up. But it's not the end. God said that if you ask for forgiveness, it's yours, and you can go on. Our Heavenly Father is the God of second chances—and third, and fourth, and fifth, and sixth chances!

Have you heard the story of "Wrong Way" Roy Riegels? On New Year's Day in 1929, Georgia Tech was playing the University of California in the Rose

Bowl. Riegels recovered a fumble and started running in the wrong direction! He ran 65 yards before one of his teammates was able to overtake him—just before he scored for the other team.

When the team went to their locker room during halftime, Riegels was devastated. He sat in a corner and cried like a baby. When it was time to go back on the field, the coach announced that the same men who played the first half would start the second. They all got up and headed out to the field—everyone except Roy Riegels.

The young player didn't want to play the second half. He was embarrassed and humiliated. He felt like he let everyone down—the team, the coach, the fans, and himself.
The coach said to him, "Roy, get up, and go back. The game is only half over."*

Roy Riegels went back in the game. He couldn't change what had happened in the first half, but he left his mistake behind him and amazed the crowd during the remainder of the game.

Always Press Forward

You have to remember that God can turn anything around. So never let your past define your future! Nothing you have done in the past will affect your tomorrow unless you let it. It's not what you've done—it's what you're going to do that is important.

Thank God for everything He brought you through. But Paul said, "Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on" (Phil. 3:13–14 NIV). The lows and highs of the past are history. They won't do you any good tomorrow. Forget all of it—the good, the bad, the ugly—everything. Let it go. You can't change it. If you live in the past, it will hinder you from pressing on.

If you've messed up, get back up! No matter how young or old you are, Jesus has His arm out to you saying, "Come on! Let's go! Get back in the game. Play like you've never played before. There's a great future ahead!"

4 Ways to Avoid Stress

AvoidStress

//Lynette Hagin

When I think of Christmas, it's easy for me to wonder how I will get everything done. When your schedule is hectic and you are overworked and sleep deprived, it's easy to become cranky and stressed out. Instead of enjoying the holiday celebrations, you wish they were over.

I realized stress was causing me not to enjoy Christmas. So I did something about it. An attitude adjustment was all it took to go from stressed to blessed!

Constantly thinking about the negative instead of the positive affects your attitude. If you are experiencing any kind of stress, attack every situation with the right attitude. I guarantee that your right attitude will become a reality for you. Here are four steps that will put you on the path to living a stress-free life.

1. Rejoice in the Lord. Philippians 4:4 (NIV) tells us to, "Rejoice in the Lord always." When Paul wrote this passage, he was in prison and had a marvelous opportunity to worry. He rejoiced, however, because he trusted the Lord to work everything out for good. Know that God will give you wisdom and show you what to do in every situation.

The Power of Thankfulness

The-Power-of-thankfulness

//Kenneth E. Hagin

The Bible exhorts believers to pray always (Eph. 6:18). Along with their continual fellowship with the Lord through prayer, they can also fellowship with Him through thanksgiving and praise. In fact, praise is a type of prayer that every Christian should master.

The Psalmist David praised God at least seven times a day (Ps. 119:164). But God is worthy of thanks and praise always—24 hours a day, seven days a week. Anytime is time to give thanks and praise to God!

We're going to look at a number of scriptures dealing with "thanksgiving" or "giving thanks" so we can understand the vast importance of this subject in the life of the believer. For the Christian, every day should be a day of giving thanks to God.

PHILIPPIANS 4:6
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with Thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

The Holy Ghost said through the Apostle Paul, in effect, "Let your requests be made known to God with thanksgiving." Looking at this from a natural standpoint, suppose someone prepared a delicious casserole for you. You ask for the recipe, so the person who made the casserole gives you the recipe. You want to prepare the same dish, so you begin making the casserole, thinking you're following the recipe. Yet your casserole doesn't turn out like the one the other person made. As you look back over the recipe, you realize you left out an ingredient!

Similarly, many people make requests to God—they pray and supplicate, begging favors of God—but they leave out something. They leave out thanksgiving, so their prayers don't work!

No Worries

Let's look at Philippians 4:6 again and take it step by step. First, it says, "Be careful for nothing." That phrase is a little blind to us today. The Amplified Bible reads, "Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything . . . ." We're not supposed to worry. We're not supposed to be fretful or anxious. Well, what are we going to do, then? The next part of that verse says, ". . . but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."
