What Does The New Year Hold?

What Does The New Year Hold? by Keith Cook

"We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:" 2 Peter 1:19

If you look to the political realm your new year will be filled with fighting and divisions. Partisan politicians need to be taken to the woodshed and given an old fashion spanking. When a man or woman cannot rejoice at the capture and incarceration of a man who has killed millions something is wrong. Whatever happened to serving those who elect you! Whatever happened to statesmen and world leadership. Liberal and negative hate groups are rising up raising millions of dollars to hurt good men and women who stand up for morals and standards in our country. What a ride we all have in store for us. I personally am recording most of the programs I watch on television so I can fast forward through all the attack adds running. I do not even watch Critical News Network anymore. I go to Christian news sites and check the news every hour and when there is an emergency situation I will usually watch a more fair and balanced newscast. I wish there was a twenty-four hour Christian news channel on Sky-Angel.

If you look at the historians your year will be a year like any other, full of ups, downs, and patterns that repeat themselves from generation to generation. Every year always brings joyous times and sad times. There will be the "agony of defeat" moments, as well as fireworks and celebrations when one of our teams win the "big one". Life will go on. Days will come and go. The hourglass of time will continue to flow. You can count on it.

If you look to your God you will find that He will be the stability of your days! Jesus Christ will be there for you come Democrat or Republican. He will shower you with protection whether you are running for a touchdown or from a terrorist attack. God has a perfect will for your life and His Word encourages you to seek it with all your heart and soul. In this next year strive to stay on focus with Him. Do not go down any of the perilous paths that the Devil places in your path. For 365 days seek to give every moment and opportunity over to the leading of your Lord. This past year is quickly fading away. Why not confess and forsake all the sins, neglects, and prejudices that have invaded your life. You can rise above the natural limitations that you currently live in. With Christ all things are possible if they are in His will and will benefit your life.

Daily Prayer Focus: As you prepare for the new year, pray for new determination to follow His star! Follow Jesus!
