It is a new year in a bit, I’m sure most of us are anticipating and making resolutions already. Some have already mapped out what 2014 is going to be like, some are wondering how the year is going to be, some are worried because this year wasn’t how it was planned and are bothered that next year might be like that…
One thing I’ve learnt this year is that man can only plan… We might have had it all planned out but it might not work out that way. I remembered writing here earlier in the year that we should make it a year of “Me and God” and my advice still stays both for the few hours left this year and for next year…
God is the only certain one, I also learnt that HE can be trusted. Just leave all your cares and worries behind, he’s surely got them. He has promised severally and one thing I know for sure is that HE can never fail, he has and will never go back on his word. Just in case you have forgotten, here are some of his promises;
“The suffering won’t last forever. It won’t be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ—eternal and glorious plans they are!—will have you put together and on your feet for good. He gets the last word; yes, he does.” You might think you have struggled too much, what HE is simply saying here is that you should hold on to him. Our timing is not the same thing as his timing, once he has said it, he will do it.
“Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.”
“I, God, am doing the speaking. What I say happens. None of what I say is on hold. What I say, I’ll do—and soon”. All of these and many more are his promises, all he needs from you is for you to hold on.
Even as we go into the new year I want you to remember this; “Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am.”.
Now here’s the conclusion of the matter, have faith in God and trust him to see you through.
See you all in 2014
