3. Foods that put weight on me in 2011 will probably put weight on me in 2012

4. If I follow the same exercise program in 2012 that I followed in 2011 I more than likely will get the same results

5. If I change in 2012, it will take a greater strength and power than just mine to make it happen

THERE ARE TWO OLD TESTAMENT PASSAGES I WANT TO LOOK AT THIS MORNING.

I am convinced that God wants to do something new in our lives in 2012.

Lam 3:21-26 (NKJV)

21 This I recall to my mind, Therefore I have hope.

22 Through the LORD’S mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

23 They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.

24 "The LORD is my portion," says my soul, "Therefore I hope in Him!"

25 The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, To the soul who seeks Him.

26 It is good that one should hope and wait quietly For the salvation of the LORD.

There is another passage in the Old Testament I want to look at this morning. It is found in the book of Zephaniah chapter 3. You hear a lot of preaching out of the Book of Zephaniah. It ranks right up there with Leviticus.

Zephaniah wrote to the people of Judah and his theme was doom and the pending judgment because of their rebellion and half-heartedness.

His message would be considered depressing like a constant rain or storm.

However, in the last part of chapter 3 HOPE breaks through.

Look at Zephaniah 3:5 with me.

Zephaniah 3:5

“But the Lord is good and HE is there in that city. HE does no wrong, Every morning HE governs the people fairly; every day HE can be trusted.”

FOUR THINGS YOU CAN COUNT ON IN 2012

I want to share with you 4 things from the passages we have read that you can count on in 2012.
