Psalm 118:22-24, Psalm 47:1: The stone which the builders refused is
become the head stone of the corner. This is the LORD’S doing; it is
marvellous in our eyes. This is the day which the LORD hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it. *O clap your hands, all ye people;
shout unto God with the voice of triumph
Your seeing this day is the Lord’s doing and it is a marvelous thing indeed. Despite all that the devil had in mind for you this year, you survived, persevered and are still standing. Nothing can stop the plan of God for your life. Nothing can stop you from rejoicing because God is for you. Let today be a day of rejoicing for you! The grace of God that has brought you thus far will take you even further in God’s will and plans for your life.
As you rejoice in God today, even greater miracles will be attracted into your life both today and in the coming year. There are miracles that can still take place in your life, even today. Your joy and rejoicing can do amazing things. The joy of the Lord is your strength. You will end this year rejoicing and will enter the new year rejoicing.
Think about God’s mercy and think about God’s grace. Meditate on the major things that God taught and revealed to you this year. Do not think about your pains and difficult times. Think on good things. Think about the things that God did for you and brought you through. Like David, recollect about the lions and bears that God delivered you from. Reflect on the moments you felt you had no hope, but yet God came through for you. Think about the “lifting up” that God miraculously ordered in your life. Choose not to focus on your moments of rejection.
You are a victor in Christ Jesus. God who always causes you to triumph in Christ (2Cor.2:14) will continue to make you triumphant.
Prayer Focus: Thank God again for bringing you victoriously to the end of another glorious year. Thank God for His faithfulness in your life and thank Him for the greater faithfulness He has in mind for you in the new year.
