Having a meaningful New Year
The New Year comes with certain euphoria of newness. It is the euphoria of a new season and New Year resolutions.
The New Year is a time of decision making, stock-taking and strategising for the future. It is a time of renewal when we seek God for the renewal of our vision and strength. It is also a time of seeking God for direction, to know his plans and purposes for us.
The desire to know God’s plans for 2022 is always paramount to most believers. Only the Holy Spirit knows the future. The full details about 2022 lie squarely in God’s hands. Only he can unravel to us his plans for 2022. The Spirit searches the deep things of God and reveals them to us. As we walk with Jesus, he will make plain the plans of God to us.
Paul writes: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have it entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except for the spirit of the man, which is in Him? Even so, no one knows the things of God except the spirit of God.
