The Beginning

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

The beginning of a new year presents an ideal opportunity to ponder our lives, reflecting on the past and thinking about the future. As we make plans for the coming year, we can consider changes we’d like to make.

During this time, it is critical that we seek God and understand His perspective. Looking back on the past, we should realize that He was with us every step of the way. He was there, even in the darkest nights, when we did not appear to have any hope. Even when we felt lost and alone, needing direction. And He was with us during our difficult circumstances and uncertain moments.

As we look ahead, we do not know what will happen in the year to come. We are sure to go through a wide variety of experiences, whether successes or failures. We’ll encounter things we expect and surprises…victories and trials…crossroads and changes.

But the Bible reminds us that God will be with us through every situation we face in the new year. We can trust in Him.

One important way to stay confident and victorious is to focus on Him. This requires a commitment to draw closer to Him, continually filling our minds and hearts with His Word. It means declaring His promises and following the leading of His Spirit each day.

Remember: Your Lord is both the beginning and the ending. He was with us in the past, and He will be with us in the future. He already is in the ending to every situation. He isn’t worried or anxious, and we shouldn’t be either!

In your life, use the beginning of this year as an opportunity to focus your attention on Him. Commit the future to Him. Commit every trial you face and every problem to Him. Renew your trust in Him.

He is the beginning and the end. This is His promise for you!
