Trust God Completely this New Year!

Let us welcome 2014 expecting the best in our lives because God thinks about us in the next 365 days. King David expressed this confidence in Psalm 139:17-18, where he says, “How precious to me are your thoughts, O God. If I would count them, they are more than the sand.”

God is able to think and care about us constantly because of His three attributes mentioned earlier. First, God is omniscient (vv. 1-6). He completely knows every aspect our lives: our actions, our thoughts, and even before a word is on our tongue. Such omniscience is too wonderful and gives us confidence for His direction.

Second, God is omnipresent (vv.7-12). God is ever present with us in every place—east, west, north, south—and in every situation and every circumstance of our lives. There is no place and situation where God's presence is away from us.

Third, God is omnipotent (vv. 13-16). God has complete control over our lives because first of all, He created us. All of our veins, muscles, nerves, skeleton and organs were woven together by God, embroidered with great skill in our mother’s womb. Then, God also sustains our lives as all of our days were written in God’s book before one of them came to be.

2014 comes with challenges, uncertainties, and difficulties, but we can face them with confidence because of the faithful and abiding presence of God in all the days ahead of us.

Let us trust God completely this New Year because He is our all knowing, ever present and all powerful God who never misses a moment to think and care about us.

Have a happy and blessed New Year!
