It’s a new year. Think about it – 365 days lie before each of us and not one of us truly knows what those days will hold. There will be days of laughter and joy mixed in with some difficult days and probably some tears.
There is only One Who knows what each day will bring us!
I’ve been working my way through Beth Moore’s video study on Deuteronomy lately. Excellent by the way. So I found it funny that the very first Scripture I would read this new year, from a completely different source, would also be from Deuteronomy …
“The land you are … to take possession of is a land of mountains and valleys that drinks rain from heaven. It is a land the Lord your God care for; the eyes of the Lord your God are continually on it from the beginning of the year to the end.“
The year ahead will probably hold many ups and downs for each of us. But here’s the thing – we get to drink from the rain from heaven – God’s Word each day. Should you so desire that is. Now if you do, I believe the trek will be easier. If you don’t, it will be a struggle and you may get stuck where you should have gone through. But He will surely provide exactly the refreshment we need each day.
Before each of us is a land (an area of our life) He desires for us to take possession. Think about it. Where is it that He is telling you, “Enough!”. The time is now. Get a hold of it.
May I ask you, what are you waiting for?
That very area is the very place the Lord your God is caring for. He’s already waiting to meet you right there. And when you and Him collide, man!!! it is going to be good, very good.
Will you be different come December 31st, 2015? Or are you going to be the same, stuck in your current state?
Go back to the verse and notice…. “from the beginning of the year to the end” – His eyes are on it! He knows what this year will bring. He’s got it all under control. He has never lost control of any minute yet to come.
Can we each believe that for this year? Are you going to join me in believing that this year?
From the beginning of the year to the end.
His eyes are on it!
