8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

 

The change in the clock's time doesn't bring an instant transformation to our lives, "as if by magic," but it does bring hope. Whether we are Christians or not, we all bid farewell to others, wishing them the best for the new year. Although it has become a cliché, this gesture evokes the deepest desire of every human being: that a change will come bringing improvement or a solution.


Hope Amidst Change


Some are hoping for their company to recover financially, for their marriages not to end, or for the ideal person to appear to share their life. However, this hope for change, whatever it may be, can only be possible if we seek God's guidance.


Firmness in God's Instructions


There are situations where God has already given us instructions, told us what to do, but perhaps we haven't seen the desired results yet and have fallen into despair. One of the temptations we face is to change course, to give up, as frustrations, waiting, and other circumstances lead us to long for something different.


Staying Firm in Faith


But we must stand firm in everything that God has spoken and promised. I want to encourage you as a new year begins, seek the Lord for Him to speak to you, to show you what things you need to change and which are His and which are not. Clearly define where your hope is directed.


Confidence Amidst Chaos


Confirm what He has already spoken to you and do it without losing hope in Him. No matter how chaotic your world is, God knows how to organize it. It's just a matter of seeking Him, listening to Him, and obeying Him.


Inspiring Words from Hebrews 11:27


"By faith, Moses left the land of Egypt, not fearing the king's anger. He kept right on going because he kept his eyes on the one who is invisible." Hebrews 11:27 NLT


Conclusion


In this new year, let's keep hope alive, follow God's instructions, and trust in His ability to organize even the most chaotic moments. May this be a year of renewal and blessing for everyone!


8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
