A new year has begun.

The days stretch out before us like a blank canvas, waiting to be filled with purposeful planning. We have the choice as to how we will use our days.

Perhaps the more necessary question we need to ask ourselves is ”“ How will we begin each day?

As we look around at the happenings in the world, we can easily become discouraged. Each day we must tend to our souls, our inner man.

” … our inner man is being renewed day by day.” (2 Corinthians 4:16, NASB)

As we care for our inner man, filling our hearts and minds with the hope we find in His Word, we are then able to not give up. We press on each day. We can strive to do our best each day, but on our own strength will not suffice.  Andrew Murray explains:

” … the Lord Jesus in heaven will continue His work in us every day, but only on one condition: every soul must give Him time each day to impart His love and His grace. Time alone with the Lord Jesus each day is the indispensable condition of growth and power.”

(from God’s Best Secrets by Andrew Murray, page 13)

As we begin this new year, let’s consider these words spoken by Jesus:

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30, NASB)

These Scriptures provide a very simple plan for each day.
