New Year Greetings First Baptist Church

What a joyous celebration to walk into 2018 with God’s Blessings before you!

The scripture says:

“Let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.”

Psalm 5:11 (NIV)

Today marks your new beginning of a new chance to look at the world afresh and decide who you choose to follow and control your future. The New Year is a symbol of renewal of the mind, body and soul; therefore, clear your thoughts and refocus your energies. On this day, let us all take a moment . . .  just take a deep breath and declare God’s blessings over yourself and your family members and the lives of your loved ones.

“Give thanks unto the Lord for He is good and His Mercy endures forever!” Psalm 107:1 (NIV).

This exhortation to praise the Lord for His unfailing love becomes your New Year Promise.  He hears the prayers of those in need and saves them. Know that when you walk by faith and trust . . .  you can rest in the arms of our Savior and know for sure that He is there for you!

We must look beyond our challenges, fears and doubts and look to the future with a sense of expectancy. God has a divine purpose for each of you; now rest in His love, compassion, grace and mercy and know the best is yet to come!

“You, O Lord, are my fountain of life.” Psalm 36:9

“Your loving-kindness is better than life, and my lips will praise You, I will bless You while I live. I will lift up my hands in your name.” Psalm 63:3-4
