While everyone is excited to face the new year, we can’t help but be anxious about what is in store for us this 2021. Will it be better or worse than 2020?
Early this morning, I asked God for His word for me this 2021. I happened to read the verse from the Bible in Romans 8:31 and it says. “If God is for us, who can be against us?”
I find this verse very comforting as I start the new year. I am not very sure about what will happen this 2021. Some would say that days will become more challenging. However, this word is giving me assurance that there is no need to fear or worry about tomorrow because God is for me.
Even in the Hardest Times
Paul mentioned in Romans 8:35, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?
These words are so comforting knowing about the extent of God’s love that he allows nothing to separate us from Him. Many things in life may threaten us this year. Job loss, business closures, financial problems, illnesses, setbacks and a lot of uncertainties. However, these can never triumph over us because God is for us.
God is for you this 2021
I am sure there will be a lot of good times in 2021, and there will also be challenges. But the good thing is, God will be with us as we go through each challenge. God will never leave us nor forsake us.
As you start the year, let your declaration be like David, “The Lord is my light and my salvation-whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27:1). God is for you this 2021!
There is nothing to fear because God is for us. May you experience a lot of breakthroughs this year! Happy New Year!
