ENCOURAGING WORDS
For the New Year

“You have never passed this way before” – Joshua 3:4

As we enter this new year of 2018, I’m reminded of several scripture
verses given long years ago, but very applicable today.
When Joshua lead the Israelites across the Jordan into the
Promised Land, he directed them to follow the Ark of the Covenant,
borne by the priests, because “You have never passed this way
before”. Joshua 3:4.

In the days ahead, we too, will encounter many new experiences.
For some the coming 12 months may be the best we’ve known. For
others, they could be marked with sorrow and disappointment. No
one knows what lies ahead, simply because “we have not passed
this way before”. That fact can strike fear to our hearts, but need
not, if we are trusting the Lord for direction in the following days
and months.

Think of Moses’ challenge to the Israelites shortly before his death
and their entrance into Canaan. With the giants of that land in mind,
he encouraged the people, “Be strong and of good courage, do not
fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who
goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Deut. 31:6
When we claim that promise for ourselves, we too, will not be afraid
of the future and will face un-traveled pathways with confidence,
trusting the Lord in every situation. As we grow older, sometimes
the bend in the road looks sharper than it really is.
Jesus said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we can
boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear”. Hebrews 13:5,6. A
very comforting truth.

May the coming year be a truly blessed one for you as you
experience the comforting presence and guidance of the Lord and
His provision for each step of the way.
