“The LORD YOUR GOD will be with you
wherever you go”
A very Happy New Year to you and your family!
As we step into the new year we all look forward with prayerful expectation of God’s protection and provision. We are thankful to God for His presence, faithfulness and grace with us the past year.
Perhaps there are prayer requests or expectations that still need to be answered or fulfilled. As much as we expect from God, we need to ask ourselves about our commitments to God. We have made new year resolutions and spiritual decisions but how faithful were we to keep it. We need to identify where we have stumbled.
Matt 6:33 “Seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness…”. This verse reminds us to invest our time in the kingdom of God and He will be the Shepherd of our life. In His presence we lack nothing. We need to make God our priority and put our life in order so God can do His will for us. When we seek our happiness to please God and give unto God the glory due to His name, He will sustain us beyond our expectations.
If we count our blessings, we have more reasons to be thankful to God. Our God has promised that His presence is with us at every step of our life and He is faithful to perform His promises to us. He promised to never leave us nor forsake us.
Therefore every moment of this new year let’s seek to please God and trust in His presence with us in all our ways and in everything concerning us.
