One in Christ’s VISION

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

We all have our goals and dreams, bucket lists and to-do lists, envisioned life and future. Those are well and good, but have we stopped to think if those are what the Lord wants for us?

Before we plan for the year, let us first consider His plans. Because while our plans are good, His are perfect. Besides, none of us has a view of what lies ahead; Jesus does. And not only does He see the future, He holds it.

Take heart! I have overcome the world

As He was about to return to the Father’s side and leave the disciples behind, Jesus left them with a two-word advice: take heart. Take heart, for there will be sufferings and persecutions. Take heart, for your faith will be tested. Take heart, for, despite all these, you will overcome. Because I have overcome the world.

The same advice He gives us as we face this new year: take heart. The future may be uncertain—it may even be batted with struggles and challenges—but we can be assured: we WILL experience the new. New blessings, new promotions, new miracles, new breakthroughs, new beginnings. Because with Jesus Christ on our side, we will not lose, only overcome. Just as He had.
