This morning, write down the things that you need to change.Be honest with yourself. If you are quick to have an attitude andfly off of the handle, then you should know that you need tochange that area of your life. Search yourself and change.Know this: From this day forward, you are not going to bepitiful. You are not going to keep crying. You are not going to be awimp or afraid. You are not going to be cast down or burdened.You're not going to be distressed or depressed, overwhelmed orovertaken. You will not be fearful or frustrated, worn out or weary.You're going to be saved. You're going to be defended. You'regoing to be charged with a new strength and a new power. Youare God's anointed. In fact, you need to just say that aloud; "I amGod's anointed. He protects His anointed; He takes care of Hisanointed; He brings His anointed out."
This is a different day for you today. This isn't yesterday oryesteryear. You're not even the same person you were then.Come up out of the past. This is a new era in your life. Refuse tobe a new person living in an old world. Refuse to be a newperson living in an old year. You're new. Whatever you didn'taccomplish in the past, forget it. Don't let that hold you back.Have the courage to start all over again. Whatever area youfailed in before today, let it go. You are not the same person thatfailed. You changed.
There's a whole new commission and brand new direction foryour life. Don't let the enemy get you stuck in your old order.Don't get stuck trying to finish the old order of an old year justbecause you created your own deadline to get that thingcompleted. If you didn't finish it and you missed your deadline,don't keep banging your head against the walls of procrastination,condemnation, and regret. Change.
How much longer are you going to keep thinking about whatyou could have done, should have done, and would have done?How many times are you going to regret not being where youwant to be in your life if only you hadn't done such and such?Constant regrets are just causing you to halt positive change fromoccurring in your life.
Some of you don't understand how deep this is. Sometimes,you've even got to go as far as changing your wardrobe, becauseyou're just not the same person anymore. Some of you are goingto have to move out of the neighborhood you're in; you're notthe same person anymore. It's a brand new day. This is a newera for you.
The Lord is going to save you, raise you up, send youstrength, and send you help. Everything you need is going to bethere for you, if you'll only dare to embrace change and change.If you never embrace change, regret will constantly besiege youand make you very miserable. You'll always measure yourself bywhat you should have done, rather than what you actually hadthe courage and faith to do.
