Moving Forward Into the New Year

“Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth. - Hosea 6:3

As we go into this New Year, you may be wondering what is going to happen. Years ago, some men were on a leaky old ship in the middle of a rough and stormy sea. One of them asked the captain, “Are we safe?” He said, “Well, the boilers are weak and may explode at any moment. The ship is taking on water. To be very honest with you, we may go up, or we may go down, but at any rate, we are going on.”

And that’s the way we are as we face this new year. Jesus may come; we may go up. We may die, and go down and then up, but at any rate, we are going on.

A Prayer for This Week

Father, I do not know what this New Year may bring but I do know who holds this New Year in the palm of his hand! Father give me the strength to face whatever comes my way, the wisdom to understand and make the right decisions, the grace to endure and overcome any situation and the love to light up this world for your Glory. I completely put my trust in you in 2015. In Jesus' Name. Amen!!
