What You Need To Do To Properly Take off and Fly in 2012.
  1. Refuse Condemnation - Refuse to be distracted by the past
    Romans 8:1 - There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
    John 3:17 - For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    BUT Don’t Mingle With Sin – Righteousness Exalts
    (Doing the right thing exalts)
    Proverbs 14:34 -  Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people
  2. Put Your Trust In God - Isaiah 17:7 – 8
    7 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
    8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

    Cursed is the man that trusts in man - Isaiah 17:5

    5 - Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.

    God Has A Plan For You -

    John 15:5 - I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

    Apart from being the vine, Jesus is also:
