2016. A brand new year. Are you old enough to remember the Y2K bug and the end of the world when all of the computers in the world would grind to a halt? Seems humorous now, knowing there is more processing power in the cell phone in my pocket than any 100 of those computers combined. How many more times have we heard about the end of all things since then?
The children of Israel were embattled by Babylon and were in the depths of despair from the trouble that surrounded them, much of it of their own making. Then the Lord spoke to them through the prophet Jeremiah. “I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not calamity, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all of your heart.”
That’s a great way to start the new year. To understand He has a plan for me and has my future in His hands. My only concern is to call upon Him in prayer and seek Him with all of my heart. The One who loved me so much, He sent His only Son, so that I might have life everlasting.
