SMOOTH TALKERS
Isaiah 5:20



"Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter." ESV



When someone has a hardened heart, there is a lack of acknowledging and caring about the difference between right and wrong. There is no shame in sin or evil. Whatever feels right and serves the self is the guide. It is frightening to know how easy it is to get deceived by someone like this. The manner is persuasive and the talk flows smoothly and convincingly. In a moment, wrong doesn't seem so wrong, in fact, it doesn't seem wrong at all. If we are in constant fellowship with the Lord, talking to Him and reading the Word, we will have discernment when smooth, evil talkers come our way.



Heavenly Father, increase our hunger for Your Word and Your presence in our everyday lives. We stand in need of discernment in this evil world and we cannot have discernment without the fullness of Your Holy Spirit. Increase our faith, in Jesus' name we pray, Amen.

Isaiah 43:18-19



"Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." ESV



It is sometimes good to reflect back over the past year to take inventory of our successes and failures. But we don't have to dwell on things that went wrong or allow things to keep us lodged in guilt and remorse. If we dedicate our lives, just as they are, to the Lord, He will take what we have and make a whole new adventure that will bring us into His will. There will be a way when we thought there was none. There will be hope when all was lost. There will be blessings when we couldn't see anything but gloom. Look, can you see what He is doing?



Heavenly Father, how we praise You for taking the ashes of our lives and making beauty. Help us to stop seeing our future by looking at our past and to start looking to You as You begin to unfold the wonderful things You are doing for us now and the coming year. In Jesus' name, Amen.

2 John 1:8



"Watch yourselves so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward." ESV



There is no room for complacency in the Christian life. We are warned over and over to be alert to the dangers that destroy our faith. Living in the Spirit every day will keep us alert and ready on that day when He comes bringing the reward He promised to us.



Heavenly Father, we ask you to help us to walk in Your Holy Spirit, that we will be wise and alert. Help us to stand strong and to not fall into the things of this world that rob us of our faith. In Jesus' name,

Amen.
