Five Truths for a New Year
Many are wondering “What lay ahead in 2021?” Will things be any better, or worse than they were in 2020? Well, I’m no prophet, but I can point you to some eternal truths from the Word of God. As we begin this new year, I have given this blog entry fully to that Word. Here are five truths for 2021.
1. Whatever 2021 brings, 2021 is the time for what 2021 brings.
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven” (Eccl. 3:1).
“From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.” (Acts 17:26-27).
2. When God decides to do a new thing nothing that went before can hinder it.
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” (Isa. 43:18-19).
“You can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.” (Job. 42:2).
3. A lifetime is very short so you should invest each day wisely.
“So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” (Ps. 90:12).
“Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.” (Eph. 5:16).
4. God has a plan for you! It is a good plan.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jer. 29:11).
5. He will help you stick to His plan in 2021 and through all your life…
“In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.” (Prov. 16:9).
“For this God is our God for ever and ever; He will be our guide even to the end.” (Ps. 48:14).
“The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.” (2 Tim. 4:18).
Press on — through 2021 and beyond… 😊
