5 Promises for the New Year
The new year holds fresh promise. Have you quieted your heart and tuned in to His voice regarding His plans for you this year? Ask Him to give you a verse as your theme and then memorize it.
Here are some of our favorite verses filled with hope as we move forward looking to Jesus as our Deliverer.
5 Promises for the New Year
1. God delights in you.
The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”
2. God is watching over your life.
"The Lord will keep you from all harm-- he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore." (Psalm 121:7-8)
3. God gives good gifts.
"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." ( James 1:17)
4. Your suffering has a grander purpose.
"I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us." (Romans 8:18)
5. God will make a way for you through the wilderness.
"See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." (Isaiah 43:19)

Me, too! God gave me that verse during one of my most difficult years of ministry and personal crisis back when I was still a single gal in my 30's. It carried me on a daily basis until my heavy heart started to lift. Every time I read it, I remember how He made a way for me then... and I know He will do it again and again and again. So thankful!

I am reading I Kings right now, Donna. Wisdom is the word of the week, and it was so lovely to see it again here in your comments. I am thankful God has given us His truth to teach us which way to go and to walk in wisdom.

I don't think of God's promises enough, I'm afraid. I trust His love and overall "enough-ness" but this list is encouraging and I will ask Him to write them on my heart, as I am on His.

I'm happy to read all 5 of these promises! At the moment, I'm not feeling well physically, so #4 particularly appeals to me. :) I love trusting that suffering has meaning.
