The Last Day of the Year

dec-31-calendar 700x400

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years…”
(Genesis 1:14)

Back in the fourth day of creation, God set up the days and years. Nothing has changed since then. And we are reaching the end of another year.

Many events are now behind us. They may have been good times or bad times but are now history. Paul says this about our history. “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before…” (Philippians 3:13)

As the year comes to an end, it’s time to look forward to the next year. None of us know what the new year will include for us. For some of us, it seems like the years are going by faster. It’s fun around our grandkids because for them time is not going fast enough.

As we look forward, we are looking with expectation. We are expecting good things to come in the year ahead. We are growing in grace and knowledge and are continuing to see new insights in the Word.

We “16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power.” (Ephesians 1:16-19)
