As we enter a New Year, I think of James’s words to us from the 4th chapter of his book. He warns us not to boast about our plans for tomorrow (James 4:14) because we don’t know what our tomorrows hold. Also, he reminds us that our lives are a fleeting vapor and vanishes away. So we should say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.” It’s true; we don’t know what this new year holds, but what we do know is that He (Jesus) holds it and walks thru life with us and will never leave us or forsake us (Heb. 13:15). With God’s promises, we have no reason ever to fear. He promised “another comforter” (John 14:16) to help, encourage, empower, and keep us forever! That’s good enough for me. So 2019, lets’s get on with this year! We have victories to win with our Triumphant Lord! Amen!
