Hello everyone! As we begin another new day together, I hope that you are progressing in your walk towards another New Year! Let's see, we have already taken two steps towards this brand-New Year, so today, let's prepare for the third step.
You know…in this day that we are living in, we see changes all around us, which can sometimes cause us to wonder where they will eventually lead us. While facing times such as these, we can find ourselves dreading another new year, while wondering if another New Year will only be worse than what has taken place in this year.
One thing we must remember is that God goes with us, even into a new season of a brand-New Year; and because He has always been with us and for us; then we should have nothing to fear, because it says in Romans 8:31-32… "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32) He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?" So, what are you thinking right now? Do you know that God is on your side and that He is walking with you? If so, then how could we ever lose out on life and be brought to destruction, when this most powerful being has become the mighty warrior that now stands before us?
One thing that God has help me to understand over the years; is exactly what verse 32 says... "He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?" Now ask yourself…why would a God who gave up the dearest One to Him…His Son, Jesus Christ, ever stop loving and caring for you, when He has already displayed His greatest love to you on an old, rugged cross? I would say that since God already gave us His all; then He is not going to walk away and stop loving and providing for us. Yes, the troubles in this world are progressively getting worse and we are even seeing things take place that we never thought could ever be, but God knows that too…and He knows what is yet to come; but He's got you…and the love He showed you on the cross is only a sample of all He longs to do, to help you through this life.
I would say that what we need to do as we take this third step and draw closer towards another New Year; is to first take hold of God, before we even reach the first day of this New Year. One thing I have definitely come to see is this; if we can take hold of God now, even before entering the New Year; then we will be able to start out the year with Him right beside us, which will give us a great start.
Maybe today, you have been through so much in this present year; that you feel as if stepping into another New Year will only get worse. May I encourage you to get close to God; because one thing I know…as long as we are holding tightly to Him…He will never let go of us; and think about this…since this most powerful being longs to be there for each one of us; then what could ever come against us or this powerful God?
As we close our time together today, I pray that God will strengthen you and be there for you, as you take this third step towards another New Year; that you may be able to feel a presence that is greater than any fear you may have at this time; that you may also be able to live with full assurance that everything is going to be just fine…Amen!
Have a very blessed day and tomorrow, I will look forward to taking the fourth step with you towards another New Year!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
