May this New Year’s devotion and prayer bless you abundantly!
A New Years Devotion and Prayer
Are You Ready for Your Best Year Yet?
For some, saying “Farewell” to a passing year is a joyous occasion and for others, it is not. There are those either looking toward a new year with great anticipation or fearing the unknown that lurks behind the days to come.
We are all in a season of our own, yet a season that still holds resemblances to one another’s. It’s that place where empathy resonates, yet a complete understanding of another’s walk remains unknown.
But here’s the hope-giving truth.
A New Year’s Prayer
So, today, friends, I come to you with this devotion and a prayer for the New Year. I’m ready for the new year. 2019 held many wonderful moments. Big prayers were answered in mighty ways … yet the challenges were many, as well.
I don’t know about you, but as I step into the new year, I want the God of certainty as my rock! In Him, I can stay steady in this turbulent world. I can follow Him and walk on the right path and purpose. In Him, all that has dried up can be revived. And in Him, my hope, joy, gratitude, and love can be renewed.[bctt tweet=”As I step into the new year, I want the God of certainty as my rock so I can stay steady in this complicated and turbulent world we live in! ” username=”lori_schumaker”]

As I head into this year, I praise You as the God of certainty. You wired me uniquely with purpose. A purpose to follow You, worship You, and be the salt of the earth (Mt 5:13).
Lord, I ask You to reveal to me any impure areas of my heart (1 Cor 4:5) or stagnant areas of my life. Then, Lord, as only You can, I ask You to revive the dry bones of my life. Revive them and fill me with Your hope (Ezek 37:11). A hope shining brightly no matter the trial or the hurt.
When the day seems dark, the road long, and the answers unclear, fill me with Your wisdom to do the next right thing. Renew my spirit with gratitude and joy, giving me eyes to see the world as You see it (Ps 51:10-13). Not missing the good or the bad, but rather seeing each moment as an opportunity to recognize Your goodness and shine Your Spirit of love.
In Jesus’ Name, I pray.
