A new year is full of promise. It gives us the opportunity to reevaluate life and the way we’re living. Its blank slate encourages us to eat better, to exercise more, to spend more time doing the things we know are important, and to reach higher as we follow where God leads.
God is a God of new beginnings. From His throne in heaven, He declares, “Behold, I am making all things new” (Revelation 21:5). May this New Year mark a new beginning in my ever-deepening relationship with Him.
I will leave the past behind and follow where God leads me
Don’t remember the former things, and don’t consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing. It springs out now. Don’t you know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
God promises to renew my mind with His Spirit
That you put away, as concerning your former way of life, the old man that grows corrupt after the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new man, who in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of truth.
God has great plans for my future
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,” says the LORD, “thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope and a future.”
God’s Word holds the key to my renewal
He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” He said, “Write, for these words of God are faithful and true.”
My future is full of hope
Indeed surely there is a future hope, and your hope will not be cut off.
My hope for the New Year is alive and rooted in Jesus
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to his great mercy caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
Every morning marks the start of a new walk with God
It is because of the LORD’s loving kindnesses that we are not consumed, because his compassion doesn’t fail. They are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness.
God marked the New Year with a solemn reminder of His deliverance
This month shall be to you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year to you.
In Christ all things become new
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away. Behold, all things have become new.
God is my source of strength and stamina for the new year
But those who wait for the LORD will renew their strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles. They will run, and not be weary. They will walk, and not faint.
When I follow God’s instructions, He meets with me and fills me with His glory
“On the first day of the first month you shall raise up the tabernacle of the Tent of Meeting.” Moses did so. According to all that the LORD commanded him, so he did. Then the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the LORD’s glory filled the tabernacle.
