A Strong Year…

“God has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot understand what God has done from beginning to end.”
Ecclesiastes 3:11

Very soon fireworks will be bursting in the sky, trumpets will be blaring and everyone will be celebrating the new year. For many it will be just another event but, for those who choose, it can become a defining moment in their journey with God.

Today’s verse gives us some powerful keys to make this coming year strong & stable. It basically says… Don’t rush… Search your heart… Trust God

Don’t rush – Everything we do doesn’t have to be accomplished in 1 day. Some things take time. If we allow time to do its work then God will ensure that everything becomes beautiful.

Search your heart – Remember that God has planted eternity in our hearts. It makes good sense that we should search our heart and get an eternal prospective on our plans. When we make a habit of checking every plan with God we’ll have great success ahead.

Trust God – Ensure that your trust is in God. He knows the beginning from the end and every step in-between. There is no one trust worthier than God. When we put our trust in Him our lives stand on a solid & sure foundation.

Let’s make this coming year the best year ever. Let’s start this new year off on a strong foot. Let’s make God central & pivotal at the very start so we’re empowered to end the year in strength. Let’s ensure God remains the focus throughout the whole year, not just the day. Then the end will be so much better than the start.
