“He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him” — Psalm 40:3
We decided that since it seemed like many of you have been reading the daily devotionals and enjoying them, that we would keep them going. We will continue with the goal to post them every day and pray that they will help you as you grow closer to God in this new year.
New Year’s Day is actually one of my favorite holidays of the year, I love fresh starts and new beginnings. I look forward to that feeling of hope and anticipation that comes at the start of the new calendar year. The Bible has a lot to say about new beginnings as well, in fact it is the themes of new beginnings, new creation, and resurrection that bring us hope as followers of Jesus.
As you start your new year, before you create a resolution or make any plans, take some time to pray. Take some time to give this year to God and to devote yourself to listening to how God wants you to spend your time this year. Whether 2016 was difficult, wonderful, or somewhere in between for you, ask God to put a new song in your mouth. A song that brings Him glory and puts your focus on Him instead of yourself. I can’t think of a better way to start the journey of a year.
Happy New Year!
