New year, fresh start

Each new year brings with it many things. It’s full of freshness, growth, and new experiences. It’s full of second chances, forgiveness, and opportunities to try again. It’s also full of tests, new challenges, and its share of difficulties and problems.

The most important thing in each new year is your relationship with Jesus. Because with Him at your side, you’re guaranteed to make it through whatever this new year may hold.

It’s been wisely said that life on earth is a testing ground and a learning experience, and with Jesus as your Guide and Coach, you’re sure to be successful. Your success may not look like success as it is popularly perceived, but you will be successful in the things that last beyond this life and into eternity.

Enter this new year with Jesus, holding His hand, and letting Him lead and guide you. Although He can’t promise that the paths you will walk this year will be easy or problem-free, He can promise you that His strength will always be sufficient for you, and that you will not face a challenge too big or too difficult for you and Him to handle together. If you can believe this and commit to trusting in Him no matter what comes your way, you’ll find that nothing will surprise you so greatly as to undermine your confidence and trust in Him.

When difficulties and challenges arise, remember His promise to help you through. Remember that when you are weak, He is strong. This will fill you with peace and confidence for your year ahead—the confidence of knowing that He, the Maker of heaven and earth, is with you.

As you walk through this year together with Jesus, the challenges you face can become opportunities for you to experience His unfailing power and strength. The choices that you face will be easier to make with His counsel to direct you. The connections and relationships you have this year will be sweeter and deeper as more of Jesus shines through you. At the close of this new year you’ll be able to look back and see the progress you’ve made and look forward to another year with Him.
