It is now 2009, and many people are anxious about what is in store for the future because of all that is going on in the world today. Many are worried about the economic crisis, change in weather patterns and so many different things. Some are experiencing troubles on all sides because they have no peace in their minds or hearts.
But God has already given us what we need to face whats ahead of us. Christ said, "I am leaving you with a gift - peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn't like the peace the world gives. So don't be troubled or afraid." (John 14:27 NLT)
So, as we look forward to the year ahead, let us take Christ's free gift of peace with us. It will ensure that we are not anxious or afraid because of what we hear or see. We will know that God is with us and that everything is working together for your good.
May the Lord richly bless your New Year

The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.
And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)
The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.
