I am already amazed at God's involvement in my life in 2011. I read that He goes before me, and I pondered in wonder what it means to have GOD as my friend! I wrote in a song once that "He's the King of Kings and my best buddy too." Consider the privilege of having the greatest, most powerful, most wonderful, most loving, smartest, and most helpful person in the universe preparing your way, wherever you go.
God knows everything...everything, and He is for me! How awesome is that! Why should I fear Goliath, or hatred, or rejection or anything else! If God is for us, who can be against us?He who did not spare His only Son, but willingly gave Him up for us all, how will He not, together with Him, graciously give us all things! Rom 8:31-32
Be filled with Joy! God is for us...don't take it for granted, ponder it, rejoice in it, wonder at it, and rejoice, full of joy! Before you make that next sales call, before you start that meal or make that bed, consider the graciousness of our heavenly Father, who provided for you. He is lovingly at work in your life.
Happy New Year!
