God's Compassion for a New Year

On this final day of the year, we are gathered together to meditate on the goodness of our God during the past year and to pray for His grace for the future. Though we often find ourselves in the midst of uncertainty, we turn again and again to the Lord our God who does not change. His Word has been our fortress and our Rock of refuge in all times. So as we approach the New Year, we turn again to that Word – to its revelation and its promises. It helps us to know God better. It will direct our prayers. It will fill us with hope. It will remind us of the forgiveness which we have in Jesus.
