Today let’s bless and praise the one who created all things including us.
Read: Colossians 1:16
for through him God created everything
in the heavenly realms and on earth.
He made the things we can see
and the things we can’t see—
such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world.
Everything was created through him and for him.
Not grief, destruction, or sorrow can keep you in despair when you sing praises to God.
Read: Psalm 30:4-5
Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people;
praise his holy name.
5 For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning.
Spend today thanking God for your life and lives of everyone you know and love! Just be grateful!
Read: Psalm 138:1-4
I will give You thanks with all my heart;
I sing praises to You before the [pagan] gods.
I will bow down [in worship] toward Your holy temple
And give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth;
For You have magnified Your word together with Your name.
On the day I called, You answered me;
And You made me bold and confident with [renewed] strength in my life.
All the kings of the land will give thanks and praise You, O Lord,
When they have heard of the promises of Your mouth [which were fulfilled].
Everything God does is good. Today is good, the air he’s given us to breathe is good. Rejoice!
Read: Psalm 118:24

45 “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. 46 When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold everything he owned and bought it!
We can’t be separated from our God, nor his love for us. Now that is something to celebrate!
Read: Romans 8:38-39
38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Never forget to honor those who paved the way before you.
Read: Leviticus 19:32

you, He won’t let you fall or fail.

He delights in every detail of their lives.

for the Lord holds them by the hand.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
