"Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness
and peace kiss each other."
Some things just go hand in hand. You can't have one
without the other. God has fashioned some of His own
qualities in that manner, and of course, that means
blessings for us.
As we face a brand new year, let's take time to
appreciate all that our LORD has done for us, and
for all the wisdom and grace He extends to us on a
God always keeps His word. He is the solid rock, and
He cannot be moved. He will remain faithful, dependable,
true, loving, just, and holy. He will always be who He has
shown us He is. He will not make a detour; He will not
change His path; He will always be on the right road.
As we go forward into the new year, let's do what God
does; stay straight and true. Follow His lead, and never
leave what you have been taught. If you give your word,
keep it to your best ability. If you make a promise to
do something, then do it. If you pledge in any way, then
honor it. Be dependable. Be a friend. Be a real sister or
brother in Christ.
New years can be exciting. We always make resolutions
to lose weight, to gain money, to reach certain goals. But
this year, let's just resolve within ourselves to be the
best Christians we can possibly be. Let's join together
and ask God to touch us in ways that will improve our
outlook, our wisdom, our faith, and those things that
will bring out the special gifts and talents that He has
given to each of us.
And let's vow to be loving, faithful, righteous and full
of peace. Let's 'pay it forward', and watch what God
has in store for our futures. He is awesome! The kisses
of God are in the very breath of our lives. Allow Him
to let them fall on you today.
