The year 2015, is almost over! What was your experience in 2015? Did everything go as you had hoped or maybe, even planned? Many people have gone through different kinds of unexpected disappointments, losses, death in the family, and changes in health and finances. And thanks to the media, we know how easily and quickly trouble can find us.
It is certain that the year 2016, is also going to bring its own challenges, challenges that we’ll most likely have no control over. In the uncertainty of life, we can be certain of one thing in 2016 and beyond, right into eternity; it is the love of God and His faithfulness! He doesn’t and won’t change, ever, “He who is the Glory of Israel will not lie, nor will he change his mind, for he is not human that he should change his mind” (1 Samuel 15:29 NLT).
So let’s face 2016 with assurance, confidence, and faith in our unchanging God! He’s promised us, “I will never leave you. I will never abandon you” (Hebrews 13:6 NLT). Let’s take courage and plunge fearlessly into 2016, and leave the details to our ever-present-God!
I wish you all a healthy and God-filled New Year!
