I don’t know about you but 2013 was like a roller coaster ride. There were extreme highs and extreme lows. I am sure you have faced a few highs and lows as well and you’re glad the New Year has come.
What will 2014 bring? I have no clue. What I do know is this: God is still in control, He still loves us in Christ and no matter what, He will see us through all of it personally.
What do we need to do? We need to increase our faith in the Lord. That includes growing in our relationship with our Lord through prayer, Bible study, worship, and fellowship. Acts 2:42-47
I can almost guarantee you (I’m not God) that if you do, you will not only see a change but a change that will result in great joy and peace.
Here are several scriptures to get you started on a great new year.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. Romans 8:37-39
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him. Hebrews 11:6
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:17
Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. Colossians 3:13
Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children 2and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Ephesians 5:1-2
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8
By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. John 13:35
I encourage you live by the Word. Cut these verses out, tape them somewhere, and memorize them, so you will be reminded each day what a great and powerful God we serve.
May our Lord fill our New Year with love, joy, and peace as we follow Him.
