A portion of scripture I always visit in the New Year is Lamentations 3:21-26 as it is filled with hope for life, living and reminds me of the importance of dependence upon God.
But this I call to mind, (I just need to remember to receive HOPE.)
and therefore I have hope:
22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; (God’s love and mercy are
his mercies never come to an end; unending.)
23 they are new every morning; (Each day I can begin anew with God.)
great is your faithfulness. (I can depend upon His faithfulness.)
24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in him.” (My hope is in God alone.)
25 The Lord is good to those who wait for him,
to the soul who seeks him. (The Lord blesses me as I seek Him.)
These verses inspire, refresh, assure, and lead me to God. He alone is the one I can depend upon because I know He is faithful, merciful, keeps His promises and delights when I seek Him. He loves me with an eternal love that is steadfast and true and therefore I can place my hope in Him.
Join me as we begin this New Year by placing your Hope in God and walk expecting good from God as He is good to those who wait upon Him and place their hope in Him.
Let these words of hope and encouragement guide you today. God is faithful and you can depend upon His love and mercy so you can begin each day with new hope.
