Although many fear an unknown future, just about everyone hopes that 2023 will be better than what we’ve experienced this past year.
If we have hope, we can face uncertainties. Without hope we fall into despair. As we step into another new year, we must cling to the promises of God.
And let us hold unwaveringly to the hope that we confess, for the one who made the promise is trustworthy.Hebrews 10:23 (NET)
As many of us have so painfully learned, putting our faith, our trust, in people or institutions, or even in our own abilities, is a recipe for disappointment.
For every Christian, this year’s resolution should be to strengthen our trust in God, through prayer, fellowship with other believers, and by studying His Word.
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.Romans 12:12 (ESV)
