As we enter a new year 2016. We need, as God’s people, redeemed in Christ’s blood, to be confident in this: that God is for us (Romans 8:32), that God is with us (Hebrews 13:5), that God will help us (Psalm 124:8), that we can expect good (Genesis 32:12, Numbers 10:29,Psalm73:1), that all things will work for our good (Romans 8:28), that God will bless us (Psalm 21:6), that by meditating on the word of God and obeying it we shall have success (Joshua 1:8), all our days and good works are ordained by Christ who is the Alpha and Omega of all of them (Psalm 139:16, Eph.2:10, Rev.1:8).
Our part? Take in the word of God by every possible means
and Pray without ceasing (I Thess. 5:17).
