Today's Scripture | Hebrews 10:23
23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
Do you know that God is already in all of the tomorrows of 2024—working everything for your good in the new year?
Many parallels exist between our lives and the story of Jericho. At the point that Joshua prepared to enter the Promised Land, he had been wandering in the desert for 40 years. He was eager to cross the Jordan and embrace the promises of God—new provision and new possessions. Instead, God instructed Joshua to do more of the same. Keep on marching!
You might be asking God to do a new thing in your life in 2024, but He is encouraging you to continue some old faithful habits:
God, please speak a fresh word to me. Read my Word and you'll hear my voice...
God, pour out a blessing. Give, and it shall be given to you...
God, renew the joy of my salvation. Praise Me!
God, please send me a friend. James 2:23, "And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness, and he was called God’s friend."
God, I am searching for hope. God is your Hope! Romans 15:13, " 13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
Like Joshua, when you are faithful to which God has called you, He leads you into victory. When you continue to place one foot obediently after the other, He will cause you to walk out on the other side as more than a conqueror!
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you and give you His peace. May angels go before you to prepare the way in 2024. As you continue to be faithful in the small things, may God unlock greater blessings in His timing. Persevere for the promise. In Jesus' name, amen.
