5 ….. God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” 6 So we can say with confidence, “The LORD is my helper, so I will have no fear….”
Father sometimes people look at a new year as standing on a precipice facing a future that is unknown, uncertain and unpredictable. We live in a world of stress and distress as a common experience and wonder if the New Year will just be filled with more of the same.
Father, we cannot allow ourselves to be pessimists. Nor do you want us to be people with such a low view of life. Father you have given a promise, provided a plan and established a purpose for our lives and you always keep your word and accomplish your will. So we can face the New Year as people with confidence knowing that: “….God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. Romans 8:28 (NLT)
And remembering Father what you said in Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT) “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” So then Father it is not only Happy New Year but much more a Hopeful New Year because you are the God of all hope enabling us to be people of hope who have a promise and a future.
