As we begin another year, we embark into uncharted and uncertain territory in the pursuit of the will of God. Face it, even though we belong to Jesus, we have no absolute certainty of what each new day will bring. Generally speaking, ‘there is nothing new under the sun.’ Jesus tells us that ‘sufficient for the day is its own trouble.’

However, in spite of the uncertainty on our part, there is no such thing in the plans of God. He has promised to instruct and guide us, provided that we walk by faith and not by sight.

Even though we do not know our future, we know that our times are in wonderful hands. By continuing in the truth of God, we will walk in freedom. Knowing that our faith will be tested, we must purpose to ‘put on the whole armor of God’ and ‘fight the good fight of faith.’

Press on, saints, and keep your eyes on Jesus. Walk in obedience and live in the expectancy of our Lord’s soon return.
