The last day of 2020 has arrived and with it an expectation that next year HAS to be better. What is your expectation?
I titled this 20xx instead of 2021 because no year will be better or worse than this year or even past years. Those who long for the good old days forget all of the problems with the good old days. Too many people think our parents or grandparents had to better. Even they think it was better. Some think life was easier with less technology. Really?!?! We live longer today, we can keep in touch so much easier, life is easier today. Do you really want to go back to the days cassette tapes?
If your expectation for the future is based on what you or I or the nation or the world will do, then you will always be expecting and never achieving as you are putting your hopes into this world and the things of this world.
Now, if your expectation is based on Jesus and the bible, then your foundation and rock is solid and will never fail. No, I did not say everything will be easier. There will be storms, but those storms are far easier to weather when Jesus is at your side, with the Holy Spirit guiding you, with God taking on our burdens
2020 was a crazy year. No doubt about it. A year we hope to never repeat.
2021 will also be a crazy year. No doubt about it. Are you ready?
2022 will also..... you get the point. Let's not bury our heads into the sands of this world and instead anchor our lives to the rock that never moves.
For you are my rock and my fortress; and for your name's sake you lead me and guide me. Psalm 31:3 ESV
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken. Psalm 62:2 ESV
Be to me a rock of refuge, to which I may continually come; you have given the command to save me. Psalm 71:3 ESV
Are you ready for tomorrow? Are you ready for the adventure of a life time?
