A new year – excitement for some; dread for others – it’s all a matter of perspective. Is the glass 1/2 full or 1/2 empty? Do we trust in our Lord Jesus or not? I’ve come to believe that the 1/2 full or 1/2 empty comes down to that. Or should I say UP to that. Where is our trust level?
If we tend to see things as problems rather than looking at them through the Problem-Solver, we probably need to get a bit more filled up on trust. A trust that is built on a God Who came to this earth in the most humble of ways. A God Who has experienced the highs and lows of this life. A God Who even after experiencing all the evil we could ever think of, still desired to take our sin upon Himself, our illnesses and pain upon Himself and go to the cross. A God Who rose up after conquering these ills for us to show us that He is THE VICTOR in our lives.
May we think about these things and let trust well up within and faith grow. This year concentrate on the red – the Words of Jesus and the blood He shed on our behalf. I believe that as we do this, our faith has no where to go but UP.
May we all have a good and “trust-filled” 2016! God Bless!
