A promise from the Bible Psalms 1:3
“…what ever they do prospers.”
No one knows what is going to happen in 2020. There were probably some surprises in 2019 that you were not prepared for. It will be the same in 2020. It could be the best year of your life or you may face a challenge in your family, health or finances. So how does the Bible promise a life that prospers? You were created in God’s image with a mind and a spirit. What comes through our minds also enters into our spirit. It could be anger, lust or hope and faith. Your spirit helps you develop your desires and reactions to life.
A NEW DIET FOR YOUR HEART
Try a new spiritual diet. A daily reading plan in the Bible. Choosing to take in Godly Truth and meditate on it during the day you will begin to affect a change in your thinking and in your spirit. The supernatural power of God’s word will create HOPE and FAITH in your mind and heart. All the blessings of God, the power of Christ’s sacrifice and the leading of the Holy Spirit become active in your life through Hope and Faith. You will have a closer relationship with God and Christ Jesus. As you continue daily, your reactions and choices in life will begin to prosper. I’m not talking financially (however, following God’s principle of giving and receiving you will release blessings and better decisions in your finances). You will also experience more peace and love, better relationships at home and work, protection from the costs of evil temptations. In other words…Your life will prosper.
Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. – (the result) That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.
Start 2020 with a new daily mental and spiritual diet. God’s word each day. I use a YouVersion daily reading plan on my phone. There are many types of plans available on almost any device. Daily meditating on God’s Word will bring health and hope to your mind, heart, and soul. Your reactions to whatever comes your way in 2020 will prosper because of it.
Be patient, we live in a generation that believes everything should be easy or immediate. This new spiritual diet takes time and effort and soon you will be hungry for it each day. As 2021 comes close, you will be able to look back on the year and see the effect God’s Word had in your life. Let your lightnside prosper and burn bright in 2020.

Psalm 119:89-91 NLT
Your eternal word, O LORD, stands firm in heaven.  Your faithfulness extends to every generation, as enduring as the earth you created.  Your regulations remain true to this day, for everything serves your plans.
