Psalm 46:10 (AMP): “Be still and know (recognise, understand) that I AM God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth”.
As we enter the new year, let us remember that: Our Lord is God over our lives.
He is our Creator, our Heavenly Father. We can rest assured that regardless of the challenges or the oppurtunities and blessings this year may hold; our Lord is the One that quietens our hearts(Psalm 23). He is our source of peace and joy(Colossians 3:15; Galatians 5:22; Philippians 4:7). He is our protector and provider(Deuteronomy 31:6; 2 Samuel 22:3-4; Psalm 121). He forgives and restores(Psalm 23:3; Psalm 51:12; 2 Corinthians 13:11). He is LOVE – never-ending, unfailing love (1 John 3:1; John 3:16; Romans 5:8; Jeremiah 31:3). Our Lord is the bread of life(John 6:35). He is the light of the world(John 9:5). He is the gate to heaven(John 10:7). He is the good Shepherd(John 10:11; Psalm 23). He is our resurrected Lord and Saviour(John 11:25). He is our way, truth and life! (John 14:6) He is nourishment – the only true vine; and our rock-solid foundation(John 15:1). He is our Alpha and Omega(Revelation 1:8); our Beginning and End(Revelation 1:17).
Father, we commit 2020 to You! We surrender all anxiety and doubt to You. Help us to be silent and to stop striving, so that we can see that You are God – the great I AM! The Lord above all nations, exalted throughout the earth. We trust You for the best year yet. We declare that You are Lord over our lives. We will follow where You lead. May our lives reflect the beauty of Your Gospel, all for Your glory and the advancement of Your Kingdom. We honor You, we love You and we worship You.
