The year 2021 is fast coming to it’s end. It has proven to be a tumultuous year at best. There has been constant sickness, government overreach, ungodly mandates ,lawlessness, rumors of war, man against man, nations against nations, many earthquakes, volcanoes, and other things that have made it unpleasant. The bible says not to be troubled by these things because they must come to pass for the end is near. (Matthew 24:6-7)
As we look ahead to the start of 2022, what are we to strive towards? What are our commitments for the New Year? Why not be committed to a life serving our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? A daily walk with Jesus can overcome the things that are happening in the world.
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
What a powerful statement and an offering of direction for our lives in the start of a New Year! It could give you the opportunity, the comfort of not being troubled or anxious about the shape of the world. We may allow the will of our God to guide us through these troubled waters.
In our household we make a commitment to start the day with the following prayer”
Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the kingdom, And the power and the Glory forever. Amen. Matthew 6:9:13
This prayer has been a help for us to allow ‘His’ will to be done in our lives and not to try and tackle problems by ourselves.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5,6

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever. 1 John 2:15-17
