How pleasant it is to have something unchanging against which we can judge what is happening in and to our world.
Think about it, everything is in a constant state of transition, even the planet is changing, not to mention the universe itself and yet there is something that has not changed in thousands of years and never will, namely God's Word. Talk about a rock!
The same principals that applied thousands of years ago are still relevant today and will be so for the entire future of human existence. And the greatest part of it is we have been given those unchanging principals in writing, not only in the ancient scriptures but in our hearts themselves. There's just no getting away from them, like trying to deny gravity or at least thinking we can overcome the effects thereof we still all land up back in the very ground from which we spring. Absolutely amazing.
The coming year will bring many things for each of us to deal with, some of them very difficult and some of them overwhelmingly enjoyable. How we choose to deal with each day and the challenges we face will determine what will happen next. It has been my experience that listening to that small quiet voice within each of us telling us which action to take is of immense value and having the faith to trust God and do what is right is always best.
My prayer for you in the coming year is; May God himself make His voice clear to you on a daily basis and may He give you the faith to know His tremendous love for you. May He also give you the strength to face each new day with the understanding that He sincerely wishes the best for you and desires your company even more than you could possibly desire anything else. God has given you His Word. Jesus came to the world to let us know in no uncertain terms, God loves you and wishes to have a relationship with you.
God bless you my friends, may 2012 bring you very close to God. With much love and gratitude for your company over the past year, Geoff.
