Welcome to the How to Forget the Troubles, Problems, and Failures of the Past and Make the New Year the Best Year of Your Life podcast episode #11. My name is Daniel Whyte III the author of the book with the same title.
We are living in “times that try men’s souls.” These are truly difficult days for many people around the world. This podcast is to encourage you to forget the troubles, problems, and even failures of the past and to truly have the best year of your life. If you do what I am encouraging you to do in this little book, by the grace of God, and with His blessings on your life, you will have a great year. How do I know? Because every year over the past 10 years of my life have consistently gotten better and better because I am following the simple principles contained in this podcast. So shake the previous year off of you, and get ready for the best year of your life!
Romans 14:11 says, “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.”
Our New Years quote for today is from Phillips Brooks who said, “The only way to get rid of your past is to make a future out of it. God will waste nothing.”
6. Read several key passages of the Bible each day.
Psalm 119:9 states: “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed thereto according to thy word.”
The Bible has a cleansing effect on the heart, mind and spirit. Try reading at least three chapters in the morning and two at night and notice the difference it will make in your mindset and outlook. You have to replace bad memories with good stuff. The Bible is the best “stuff” in the world.
As you read your Bible, read all of it, but focus on verses that deal with your particular sins, failures, and struggles. As you read the Word of God, have an open mind as well as a made up mind to obey what it says. Don’t read it to forget it! Read it to remember it, and the more you obey it, the more you’ll be able to recall it. As you study God’s Holy Word, remain humble as you allow it, through the working of the Holy Spirit, to thoroughly cleanse you.
Now, if you are listening today, and you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour, allow me to show you how.
First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”
Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
Now this is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.
Romans 10:9-13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
God Bless You!
