HAPPY NEW YEAR! May the good Lord bless you.
The year 2012 is unique because its first day is the Lord’s Day of REST. It is thus; very significant and apparent that God is encouraging us to rest all our affairs on Him through His Word this year.
"Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them”. Joshua 1:6
In this passage, God swayed Joshua’s noticeable fear of his new assignment by urging him to rest on His Word. And he did. God kept His Word and Joshua successfully led the Israelite into the Promised Land.
Dear friend, whatever your goal for 2012, be strong and realize that God cannot lie. He will guide and lead you to your “journey’s end”. Only rest your plans this year on Him. Trust His power to enable you accomplish them. All year long, you too, like Apostle Paul, should confidently say: “I can do everything through him who gives me strength”. Philippians 4:13
