Happy New Year!

Watching the news the past couple of days, well I wonder what kind of New Year many people will have. It seems kind of a rough start to begin with the task of avoiding a cliff! So many of us are compelled to worry about such and wonder what is going to happen in 2013. Now don’t get me wrong, I do wonder, but I am not afraid of the New Year in spite of the cliff. It occurs to me as to why so many are afraid is because of where their confidence comes from. Here is part of a Psalm from David. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; But we will remember the name of the Lord our God.”

In the coming New Year the only safe place to put our trust is in God and His Son. I learned enough in 2012 to know we can’t put our trust in men or in nations and certainly not in the economy. That whole cliff thing is still staring us in the face!

The only safe place to put our confidence and our trust in 2013 is in God. "Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him" (Psalm 2:12). "Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him!" (Psalm 34:8).

The New Year is always full of resolutions. Let this one be yours from Psalms (18:2). The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold"

Put your trust in God! For where your treasure is, there you'll find your heart. He won't let us down.  May this be our resolution for 2013!

Happy New Year! I love you all! Philip
