Nothing scares human beings like the unknown. The very fact that one doesn’t know what is coming can paralyse even the bravest of men. A new year with its promises can be a daunting task for those that are unaware of what is coming. Though we may not know what tomorrow holds, we can confidently say we know who holds tomorrow.
God has promised to go ahead of you this new year. He is gone far ahead of you that by the time you get there you will find things sorted and arranged in your favour. I don’t know what challenges will come your way in 2019. But I know who has gone ahead of you in those challenges. By the time you get there, God will have already made a way for you. Whatever you may face is not new to God. Nothing takes Him by surprise. You can confidently face tomorrow knowing that God has gone before you.
SCRIPTURE READING: Deuteronomy 9:1-3 “Hear, O Israel: You [are] to cross over the Jordan today, and go in to dispossess nations greater and mightier than yourself, cities great and fortified up to heaven, a people great and tall, the descendants of the Anakim, whom you know, and [of whom] you heard [it said,] ‘Who can stand before the descendants of Anak?’ Therefore understand today that the LORD your God [is] He who goes over before you [as] a consuming fire. He will destroy them and bring them down before you; so you shall drive them out and destroy them quickly, as the LORD has said to you.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Oh God, You have promised to go ahead of me this year. I may not know the challenges that are ahead of me but you’re before me. I choose to face tomorrow because You’re with me. Amen
