“This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” (Ps. 118:24, NKJV).
If this is the day that the Lord has made – and it is! – then it follows that this is the week that the Lord has made… and the month that the Lord has made. And this is the year that the Lord has made!
He has made 2021 for you. Before the timeline of ancient history even began to unfold, He had planned the next twelve months out with unfathomable precision and care. He has so much in store for you this year, as you seek Him with all your heart.
Just a few thoughts for us as we embark on the new set of adventures ahead:
1) Let’s live 2021 out of our oneness with Jesus. We are one spirit with Him (1 Cor. 6:17). In everything that is to unfold, let’s lean into that precious bond we have with Him. Let’s let everything we do and say flow out of it. Let’s only say what He’s saying and do what He’s doing.
2) Let’s live this New Year out of the place of our belovedness. He loves you and me with an everlasting, unbreakable love. Do you hear that? You are perfectly loved. Let His perfect love for you show you the way forward every morning this year.
3) Let’s live forgiven this year. The blood of Jesus has spoken for you. It has said you are forgiven, and nothing in the universe can alter that pronouncement. Run headlong into His unfolding plans in the freedom of your forgiven-ness. You are at peace with God – what a glorious way to begin the fresh window of time opening ahead of us!
In 2021, if God is for us, who can be against us?? This is the year that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!
What are you dreaming of for 2021? I would love to hear about a special aspiration or hope you have for the New Year 😊.
