As we ponder what the new year may hold, the believer in Christ can find peace in knowing that help comes from the Lord who gives promises of hope, guidance, and strength. Take joy in these promises.
There is HOPE for the journey.
“The eye of the Lord is upon them that fear Him, upon them that HOPE in His mercy.” Psalm 33:18
“This I recall to my mind; therefore, have I HOPE. It is of the Lord’s mercy that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning. Great is thy faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:21-23
“Blessed is the man whose HOPE is in the Lord.” Jeremiah 17:7
Also, our Lord promises to be the GUIDE for the journey.
“For this God is our God forever and ever. He will be our GUIDE even unto death.” Psalm 48:14
“Thy God shall GUIDE thee continually and satisfy thy soul in drought and made fat thy bones, and thou shall be a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.” Isaiah 58:11
“I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will GUIDE thee with Mine eye.” Psalm 32:8
Indeed, our Lord will give STRENGTH as we travel.
“Trust in the Lord forever for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting STRENGTH.” Isaiah 26:4
“It is God that girdeth me with STRENGTH, and maketh my way perfect.” Psalm 18:30
“Fear not for I am with thee; be not dismayed, for I am thy God I will STRENGTHEN thee; yea, I will help thee; yea I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10
The Lord knows the way through 2021, and He will be our HOPE which gives encouragement, our GUIDE which gives peace, and our STRENGTH which gives endurance.
Travel on; our Lord knows the way!
