Remember a thief doesn’t care about “junk.” Satan doesn’t either. He only attacks those who are valuable.
Verse: Isaiah 43:18-19

I want you to go beyond your past experiences. Even if that refers to last night. God wants to do a new thing in your life.

Going after this “new thing” that God wants to do in your life will require that you recognize how valuable you are! Malachi 3:17 tells us how God feels about us: “Because I am the Lord’s, He will publicly recognize and openly declare me to be His jewel (his special possession, His peculiar treasure), and He will spare me, as a man spares his own son who serves him.”

You may not realize how valuable you are. You may have had others “try” to devalue you and underestimate your true worth. You may have had others treat you and your body as worthless! But God says that you are valuable. You are His special possession, His prize, His precious child.

Let me explain how valuable you are. When a thief breaks into a house, he is searching for valuables, right? He doesn’t take the paper cups, the toilet

Our dispensational calling is what keeps things in perspective. Remember, your perception of reality determines how you act. If ruling and reigning on an eternal level is real to you, it will shrink your day-to-day problems down to size, won't it? It will keep them in perspective.

An eternal view can bring our problems down to size. Things which ordinarily control so many people's behavior, like fears and anxieties, just melt away.

For example, fear of death controls many people's behavior without their awareness. They will not go swimming. Why? Fear of death. They will not fly in an airplane. Why? Fear of death. The word cancer strikes fear in their heart. Why? Fear of death.

So much of our behavior is unconsciously controlled by the way we have been mentally programmed; how we act determines what we impart as we relate to other people. That is why it is so important for the truth of God's Word to become reality to us, not just mental assent.

When you allow your mind to create a mental image, it produces behavior. If you have a mental image of the wrong thing, it will produce the wrong behavior.

We stand on the escarpment of a New Year. In many ways, it seems that what lies ahead doesn't rally us with energizing hope, but rather it seems to rattle us with deep apprehension. From the vantage point we stand on at the beginning of this New Year, the landscape that lies ahead looks uncertain at best and disastrous at worst. We see a world reeling from decisions that we don't understand, actions that appear to border on the irrational, and directions that seem to have forsaken any mooring that the founding principles of our nation might have given them or a sense of mortality might afford them.

We stand on the listing precipice of this New Year with a host of political agendas and secular philosophies promising rosy tomorrows and a year brimming with the brightness of a world throwing off the old and seizing the new. We hear the words and they tickle our ears, but in many ways we don't see the landscape ahead reflecting what the words say it should reflect. While many have taken hold of the words hoping that they pan out, deep inside, many of us aren't certain that the promises made and the agendas outlined are deep enough, rich enough, transforming enough or solid enough to really accomplish what they say they can accomplish. The reality is, we're not all that certain that we want them to accomplish what they say they'll accomplish anyway.
