New Years

"By God's grace we greet 1971
By God's grace we survived 1970.

As we greet this New Year we don't know what's ahead.
But, for every child of God we do have a promise that will cover anything that lies ahead.

Deuteronomy 33:25

New International Version (NIV)
 The bolts of your gates will be iron and bronze,
    and your strength will equal your days.

Deuteronomy 33:25

Amplified Bible (AMP)
25 Your castles and strongholds shall have bars of iron and bronze, and as your day, so shall your strength, your rest andsecurity, be.

Deuteronomy 33:25

King James Version (KJV)
25 Thy shoes shall be iron and brass; and as thy days, so shall thy strength be.

Deuteronomy 33:25

Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

25 May your bolts be of iron and bronze
and your strength last as long as you live.

                        What sort of days can we expect?

Don't take God for granted.
Don't let up in your prayer life.
Every day in the coming year be thankful, be grateful.
In the days ahead give God praise.
Make good use of your days in the coming year.
Be watchful… the days to follow, do not be deceived and 
Do Not Compromise!
Make sure that everything in your life is well…..everyday -everything is in place.

There will be days ahead when things are not clear;
The matters of life will be confusing and uncertain.
There will be days with problems, trials, anxious moments, etc.
In such days we will ALL need Divine guidance, strength and wisdom.

In the dark days, hold to God's promises……they will hold; firm and secure.
Make sure your days are filled with prayer, trust, faith,
consecration and grace.
