well...another year behind a new one ahead...
here are some notes from my daily devotional STREAMS IN THE DESERT (it's old so forgive the old style vocab.)
- today we stand on the verge of the unknown. Before us lies a new year and we are going forward to possess it.
- who can tell what we shall find?
- new experiences
- what changes shall come
- what new needs will arise.
but here is the message from our Heavenly Father!...
The Lord thy God careth for it. His eyes are upon it away to the ending of the year.
- our supply is to come from the Lord
- his springs will never run dry and never be cut off
- His gracious pledge: If He be the Source of our mercies they can never fail us. No heat, no drought can parch that river, the streams whereof make glad the city of God.
- this is a land of hills and valleys - it will not be all smooth or all down hill
- it is the hill difficulty that drives us to the throne of grace and brings the shower of blessing;
- God's hills are a gracious protection for His people against their foes!
- we cannot tell what loss and sorrow and trial are doing...TRUST ONLY.
- the Father comes near to take our hand and lead us on our way today.
IT SHALL BE A GOOD, BLESSED NEW YEAR!
