Today I was thinking about my future. In not too many years, I’ll be ready to retire. I’ve worked my entire life since I was 9 years old. The time is coming for me to say that’s it. I’m done. In those thoughts, I also meditated on all of what the Lord has given me. How He redeemed me from my life of sin. How He has healed me, restored me, poured into me His Holy Spirit. I’m overwhelmed by all He has done and know He’s not yet finished.
As we approach the new coming year, my hope is not in what this world can provide. There is no hope in this world and no man can convince me that I should place my hope and trust in him. I know that things are terrible. I know that there are those screaming for a change. I know that some think that a new president is the answer. I say, “No!” Our only hope is in Jesus Christ. Thank You Jesus for the truth and the promises of Your Word that I can confidently stand on. Your Word will not fail. Your Word will not break. Hallelujah!!!
Lord it’s only through you that we are redeemed. May we place our hope in you. Father, my prayer is this. Pour out Your abundant redemption on Your children. Fill every part of them with Your love, Your healing, Your deliverance, Your provision, Your grace, Your mercy, and Your forgiveness. In the coming year Lord, may we turn toward You for all that we need. Lord, we receive this promise in Your Word and thank You in advance for a year of abundant redemption. For Your Glory, Lord. Amen.
Don’t believe me. Believe God!
