A once-new year has passed, and another is coming to our doorsteps.
The New Year is upon us.
The time when we dig up crumpled New Year resolutions and sigh over unfinished projects. The time when we sit down for a few minutes, and reminisce about 2017, and all God has brought us to know and experience.
Happy vacations, new livestock, baby lambs— a new car. God has blessed us with more, much more than we ever will deserve.
And as we look forward to 2018…..
Happy? Kind of… it’s always sad to see a year pass away.
Afraid? Maybe… because, who knows what will happen?
But something we know for certain.. one thing we know will never pass away.
The love of God. God’s mercy and His Plan of Salvation.
The promise that “They shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” John 10:28b (KJV)
Another promise. “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”
There will be order in the world: even when a lot of other things, such as bitcoin crashes and biotechnology, confuses and radically changes the world, and the way we perceive the world. There will always be Someone we can trust, Who we can lean on, Who will never, never change when everything else crumbles.
This is the message I pass on to you. Hope in the Lord, even when we cannot see the end of the tunnel. At least not yet.
But we know who will be Victor 🙂
A third promise for Two-thousand and Eighteen:
“Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:20 (KJV)
