Keep traveling steadily along His pathway and in due season He will honor you with every blessing. Psalm 37:34
Happy New Year Everyone!
Friends, can you believe it, another year has come and gone? Looking back at last year helps us to see how God worked in our life. Was it a year of heartache and loss or happiness and joy, tragedy and sorrow or success and achievement?
How do you think God looks on this past year in our life? Did it bring us any closer to Him? What lessons did we learn last year? What did God teach us?
If we look within, we might see some changes which may need to be made before we begin this new year. If you are like me, there were so many times I missed the mark of being all I should have been. Self-examination causes us to realize that we can't live the way we should in our own strength.. We need God's help. Our only hope is a changed heart, one which we can only receive through Jesus Christ.
God's love is unchanging. we read in Malachi 3:6, I the Lord do not change.
From everlasting to everlasting the Lord's love is with those who fear Him. Psalm 103:17
2 Corinthians 5:17 says If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
A new year awaits us, smiling in the unknown of 12 months. Are we ready to receive dozens of things God is waiting to teach us?
Praise be to you, O Lord; teach me Your decrees. Psalm 119:12
Let m take this opportunity to share my faith, in case anyone is in need today. Salvation comes through Jesus Christ. It is not obtained by our working for it. It only comes by way of faith-believing that Jesus is God's Son who lived a perfect life and died in our place so we can have forgiveness of sin and eternal life. Oh friend, if you do not now this wonderful Savior, ask Him to come into your heart and forgive you of your sins. Then you will find this everlasting love and a changed heart. Eternal life in heaven awaits you.
Join us tomorrow as we continue our Bible study in the book of 1 Chronicles 11.
Teach me your way, O Lord; lead me in a straight path. Psalm 27:11
