It’s a new year, a new month, a new week and a new lap has begun. Everything is new and it’s always a refreshing feeling. On the first day of this year I read the last day of a Christmas devotional I was still doing. And I would love to share it with you today. The video, the bible verses and a lovely prayer to start the year with. Have a Blessed, Beautiful and Bountiful new year.

Jeremiah‬ ‭29‬:‭11‬ ‭[HCSB‬‬] — “For I know the plans I have for you” — this is the Lord’s declaration — “plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭33‬ ‭[HCSB‬‬] — “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you.”

Isaiah‬ ‭41‬:‭10‬ ‭[HCSB‬‬] — “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand.”

Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭1‬ ‭[HCSB‬‬] — “So if you have been raised with the Messiah, seek what is above, where the Messiah is, seated at the right hand of God.”

Revelation‬ ‭21‬:‭5‬ ‭[HCSB] — “Then the One seated on the throne said, “Look! I am making everything new.” He also said, “Write, because these words are faithful and true.””

God, You are with me in hard times, and protect me at all times. My future is secure in You because I am Your child. So today, I give my life and my year over to You. Teach me to seek You first this year so that I can embrace the abundant life that You offer me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
