What is it that you are waiting for from the Lord? What are you hoping for that you do not yet have? While you are waiting, don’t let go of that little word “yet.” It’s the difference between hope and despair because God is not finished yet.
Hope in God’s provision in a new millennium. God gives us exactly what we need for our journey ahead: iron shoes instead of silk slippers, because the road is hard, the way difficult, the path sometimes treacherous. God does not give his strength in advance, only when needed. Each day you will have what you need.
You can do “all things” if you rely on Jesus Christ. Not on your own strength, not on your own power, not on your own wisdom, and not on your own ability to figure things out. But if you will say, “Lord Jesus, this year I’m relying on you,” you can do all things through Christ.
