As we head into 2024, I hear many people speaking with fear and apprehension about the year ahead. I encourage all of us to look at the new year through the eyes of faith.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
I don’t have the first idea what will come to pass in 2024. None of us do. It feels less certain than other years in our lives, but it’s really not. We never truly know what will happen from year to year. Not even during the so-called “good” and “peaceful” years of the past.
But our Heavenly Father knows exactly what is to come. He knows what we will need each day as the Body of Christ, as churches, as families, and as individuals. Nothing will surprise Him. He knows the beginning from the end.
God has given us a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind. If you find yourself lacking any of these today, ask Him to refresh you and provide them.
If you would like more encouragement in the realm of faith, perhaps one of these posts will meet that need.
