There’s a sense of excitement and anticipation everywhere as I speak to people about the year 2020. I personally believe that this year will be a year of God continuing to build strength, faith and a joyful expectations of new beginnings.
My wife Amanda has been trying her hand at growing herbs on our back porch. She excitedly
showed me the other day some new sprouts that were coming up from the ground. I observed
how excited she was at the thought of new plants growing in her humble start up garden. New
things that sprout excite us, especially when we recognise the simple grace and wonder of the
miraculous that made them happen.
God is the God of new things, new beginnings, new opportunities and new starts. The last 20
years of the 2000’s are behind us and what awaits us are the things God has been shaping us for
as individuals, families and church. Be expectant in 2020. Be ready to take hold of all the
goodness God has for you. Be filled with vision and serve him wholeheartedly and with great joy.
2 CORINTHIANS 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
As we continue to remain in Christ, our lives become a haven for new things that will continually
Happy New Year & be blessed in 2020!
