Dear Baroda Bible Club members Happy New Year Greetings,
Today we are alive and kept in this world by the
grace of the Lord our God who created every thing by His power and
might. To God the bible says in Psa 90:4 "For a thousand years
in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch
in the night. Also in 2 Pet 3:8 "But do not forget this one
thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years,
and a thousand years are like a day.
It is always good to look back and see the days of the past as in Psa
77:5 "I thought about the former days, the years of long ago. When
we do that we learn from our past mistakes and experiences.
The Psalmist says in Psa. 90:14 & 15, Satisfy us in
the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and
be glad all our days. Make us glad for as many days
as you have afflicted us, intended for as many years as we have seen
trouble. So only god can satisfy us in this world.
It is really God who helps us to see more prosperous years.
So we must learn to plan each year with the Lord and in the Presence
of the Lord. Keeping God as our main in all our Programs and giving
more priority for the kingdom of God work and for understanding the
word of God. In Prov 9:11 "For through me your days will be many,
and years will be added to your life."
The bible says the fear of the Lord helps us to have more years of
life as in Prov 10:27 "The fear of the LORD adds length to
life, but the years of the wicked are cut short." Manís life span
on this earth is as in Psa 90:10 The length of our days is seventy
years-- or eighty, if we have the strength; yet their span is but trouble
and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
Psa. 65:11 "You crown the year with Your goodness,
And Your paths drip with abundance.."
But God will crown your living years with His goodness as the psalmist
says in Psa 23:6 "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All
the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever."
Since every good things are coming from our God as in James 1:17 "Every
good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from
the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of
turning." So, Let us keep looking at God in all walks of our
Life as in Psa 121:1 I will lift up my eyes to the hills; From whence
comes my help?
As we worship God every year for a special yearly blessings, God
will definitely grant to you some new blessings as in Zec 14:16 &
17, "Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked
Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the
King, the LORD Almighty, and to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.
If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship
the King, the LORD Almighty, they will have no rain."
Whatver is your need may be come before God
and honor Him every year and He will help you to have goodness and every
thing in abundance. He will help you to enjoy each day with happiness.
Have a wonderful and a prosperous year with the help of God. Amen.
