“Thus far the Lord has helped us.” I Sam. 7:12
All glory and praise to our Almighty God, for protecting and helping us in the past year and bringing us into yet another New Year. Indeed, we are here today because of His great mercy and enduring love. Only God’s grace and compassion has brought us into this new day and New Year. More so, God’s words will be our strength and shield each day as we begin this year.
As we begin this year, let us claim the promises in Psalms 147:13-14
He strengthens the bars of your gates
and blesses your people within you.
He grants peace to your borders
and satisfies you with the finest of wheat. – Psalms 147:13-14
The above verses hold three wonderful promises for us. God will strengthen our gates and bless our people, He will grant peace to our borders and He will satisfy us with the finest of wheat.
God promises that our homes, our workplace, and our nation will enjoy safety and security. He will bless our people, our families and friends and provide the very best for us. God will satisfy us with prosperity, health and well-being.
Yes, let us step into the New Year confidently holding onto this promise and claim it every day, every minute, and second that God gives us.
We shall say, “My times are in your hands.” Ps. 31:15. Surely the Lord promises, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you” Ps. 32:8.
May the Lord protect you and be with you and your family all through the year.
Wishing you all a very happy and blessed New Year 2020
