Happy New Year to you, Daughters of zion! What an amazing feeling to know that we have yet another year to grow in strength as we worship unconditionally at the feet of our Lord and Master, Jesus Christ!
Year-on-Year, as we approach the end of the year, I start to meditate on the opportunities I took to worship and proclaim my Lord Jesus as well as those I lost due to reasons that were within my control. And whilst I can’t do anything about the past, I can most certainly aspire and plan for a much better tomorrow. I can prioritise better, separate myself to study the word of God more frequently, worship more passionately and reach out to people with greater love, warmth and sacrifice. This was exactly how our Lord Jesus lived while on earth.
My beloved sister, the power of choice lies within your hands. Joshua said to the children of Isreal in Joshua 24:15,
But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
You can choose to worship at His feet continually and enjoy an extraordinary and fulfilling life. On the other hand, you may be non-chalant about it all and take life as it presents itself to you.
May I admonish though that the only standard for righteous, joyous and peaceful human living is emulating the life that our Lord Jesus lived. If you will choose His kind of life this day, then I guarantee you, with all faith in His Living Word, that you will undoubtedly enjoy fullness of joy in 2010, the year of His Grace, Favour and Lifting!
I love you more in 2010 than I did in 2009 and always count it a great honour and priviledge from God to write to you.
