Trying to swim through the fog peering intently ahead with little success. Yes, another New Year is upon us, time shrouded in mystery. Of every year that has bloomed upon a new calendar, this one has the feeling of standing on a tippy raft. Thankfully, hope is reigning, because it is secured by my trust in an almighty God Who loves me desperately enough to send His Son to save me.
8 Let the morning bring me word
of Your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in You.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I entrust my life.
There’s a secure “rope”, the Holy Spirit, who grabs hold of me and never lets go. So with all the challenges that may lay ahead, I am confident that my God rules in the future and has already laid out good plans for my life.
Jeremiah 29:11 (AMP)
For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you,
says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace
and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.
When the enemy is able to distract me from this truth, an uneasiness sets into my mind. However, slowly I am gaining ground on the enemy and its subtle maneuvers and deceptions. Settle down into the depths of my deepest being finding You, Holy Spirit waiting with a smile~ that’s the answer, and the nearer I get to You, the more fixed my soul becomes, stable and secure. Strength enters and locks my soul connection with You bringing peace.
Isaiah 50:10 (AMP)
Who is among you
who [reverently] fears the Lord,
who obeys the voice of His Servant,
yet who walks in darkness and deep trouble
and has no shining splendor [in his heart]?
Let him rely on, trust in, and be confident
in the name of the Lord,
and let him lean upon
and be supported by his God.
Thank You, my God, for reminding me that there is nothing to fear when I have You. There is no place I go nor any situation that You don’t have power over to bring me out of it in victory. I trust in You!
Have you too gained this knowledge as a root deep within your soul?
