6 Words for 2016
As we begin this new year, it is important to commit our plans, our hopes, our resolutions to God and let Him direct us in all our ways. What you might find helpful is getting hold of a word, a phrase or verse that reminds you of God’s promises, His character and His person so that in any and every situation that comes up throughout the year, you can hold on to that promise of God and remember that He will see you through.
Last year we adapted the verse, “A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps. Proverbs 16:9” for our family and we were constantly reminded that whatever our plans may be, God directs us in the right path. So our prayers were not what we want for us, but asking for His will in our lives.
This year we have adapted the following phrase in our lives: “Unchanging God in a Changing World!” Even if we get tossed around or let down, God is going to remain the same yesterday, today and forever! (Hebrews 13:8)
The person of God is unchanging: “For I am the Lord, I do not change; Malachi 3:6″
His words and promises are unchanging: “The grass withers, the flower fades,
But the word of our God stands forever. Isaiah 40:8″
His actions and purposes are unchanging: “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. James 1:17”
This gives hope, peace and rest in His name; in the unchanging name of God! I’m sure as we look back at the end of this year we would be able to relate to how unchanging our God was in our lives this year!
Have a blessed and God filled New Year!!! 🙂
