As I listen to all the fireworks, I can’t help but wonder what the celebration is about. A New Year has arrived and the Old year is a thing of the past. 2020 introduced various storms and many valleys. With these storms, some have experienced fear, doubt, defeat, and discouragement. However, if we were to stop and think about all the things that we faced, we would see the hand of God giving strength, faith, courage, and the power to overcome. So we celebrate that God was with us.
In this New Year, I encourage you to hold to God’s unchanging hand. The same God that brought us to 2020, brought us through it. The same God that brought us through it, promised He would never forsake or leave His people. Let us keep our eye fixed on the one that is able to carry us through whatever may come our way. Joshua and Caleb saw the same giants that the other spies looked upon but their faith was in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. By faith, they overcame the enemy. Don’t focus on the giants, focus on the giant slayer.
The Hebrew writer said this, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.” The author of our journey and the finisher of our faith has written our name in the palm of His hand. WE ARE HIS!!!
He came from heaven, born of a virgin, rejected by men, shed His blood and died for our sins. He was placed in a borrowed tomb and rose again on the third day. He ascended to the Father to sit at the right hand of God, making intercession for us all. 2020 did not fool or catch Him by surprise and certainly 2021 will not. He knows all, He sees all, and He is ALL POWERFUl.
Psalm 37:3-5 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. 4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
God Bless and Happy New Year to All,
