Praise God, It’s A New Year!

Praise God, It’s A New Year!


It’s a new year. Praise God, you made it into the New Year! A new year, new beginning, new opportunities and another chance to do better than before. No matter how last year was, this year gives you the privilege to do better. This post encourages you to celebrate, for God who caused you to see this year will be there to help you take greater steps this time.

It is good to give thanks to the LORD, and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; to declare your loving-kindness in the morning, and Your faithfulness every night – Psalms 92:1-2 (NKJV).

Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassion fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness – Lamentations 3:22-23 (NKJV).

It is really good to give thanks to the Lord for last year; this means that it is bad not to give thanks to the Lord. If you will be sincere, you know that God’s love, mercy and faithfulness were obviously in manifestation in your life throughout last year. A wise man said that if you have lost anything, it is because of God that you didn’t lose everything, and that includes your life (paraphrased).

No matter what may have transpired last year contrary to your plan or desire, you still owe God praise and thanksgiving because it could have been worse. Many people had great plans for this New Year but they are no more to execute or see them materialize, but you are alive to give the year what it demands for a glorious future.

It’s time to lift your hands in worship and praise to our merciful and faithful God, who despite all odds counted you worthy to see this New Year. Certainly, we are not better than those that are no more; it’s just the grace of God speaking on our behalf. So, it’s celebration time; time to count your blessings and name them one by one. One of such blessings is that you are alive to see this New Year.

However, in case you don’t see any reason to stay alive, are you sure you are ready to see your maker? You may have lived a righteous life last year, however if you were dead, are you sure you would have heard God saying to you, “well done, good and faithful servant?” (Matthew 25:21). How far have you gone with your God ordained purpose on earth?

Where there is life, there is hope, a living dog is better than a dead lion (Ecclesiastes 9:4). Therefore celebrate life and the Lord who gives it. It’s a new year, your path shall shine brighter and your end shall be better than the beginning. Trust in the LORD with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths all through this year (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Rejoice, I say again rejoice, for God’s love, mercy and faithfulness will yet speak for you.



Jesus is Lord!
