By grace, God has given us time. This allows us to plan, organize and improve ourselves on a daily basis to achieve the goals we have set for our lives. Consider a day that is ending. It is a symbol of hope for a better tomorrow, with the possibility of doing differently if desired.
As a new year is about to start, we can take the opportunity to take stock of the ending year. We can re-examine our lives, our goals, our successes and failures, and learn from them lessons that will guide us. The good news for us, children of God, is that we have the Holy Spirit in us who will be happy to enlighten us with all the truth. He will help us learn the right lessons and set the best possible goals for the coming year. And He will do it according to God’s plan for our lives.
John 16 : 13 (NLT)
” When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future. “
So, as the year ends, do not hesitate to pay attention to the Lord. Get ready to receive directions, encouragements and useful information to succeed in the coming year. Do not wait for a pastor, prophet or any other person with a great title, to reveal you what God has planned for you. You are the first one God wants to talk to. Why deprive yourself of it?
