Day: January 1, 2021
It’s January. Time again for new beginnings, and to leave the hurts and sorrows of the past year behind. Time to take a deep breath, and look forward to what God has in store for the future. For He is always at work taking all we experience and making something wonderful spring forth. The Lord has great plans for each of us, so we can head forth into the new year confident, hopeful, and thankful. So with a joyful heart we say goodbye to the old, and with anticipation, look to the new and amazing things God is doing!
Being God’s chosen people puts a bullseye on the backs of Israel. She is sorely hated by Satan, for through her was born Jesus, the promised Messiah. Even now Israel faces constant attacks from the Enemy. But one day God promises to throw Israel’s adversaries at her feet and His people will know peace forever. For soon the born Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, will return as the great conquering Lion of Judah. He will set up His earthly kingdom, and the King will perfectly rule with a rod of iron.
