Read Romans 8:31-39. So here we are at the end of 2022 and the end of another year of the Battle Drill Devotional. Thank you for taking this journey with me. I look forward to sharing more daily devotionals with you in 2023. As we reach the end of the year and look back over this past year, what role has God played in it?
Do you think he’s been brooding over you, waiting for you to slip up and ready to judge you for every wrong you did? Or do you see that God has wanted what’s best for you throughout the year? That he has a plan for your life and wants you to be happy?
God never wanted us to be afraid of him. That’s why his Word – the Bible – holds 365 times when he says to us, Do Not Be Afraid! One for every day of this past year!
None of us knows what 2023 will bring. The last few years have taught us that if nothing else! But we can go into the New Year knowing that God loves us, that he is with us and that he is on our side. Jesus stands ready to rub out anything you’ve done wrong in 2022, anything you regret, and he’ll do the same again for you in 2023 and beyond. So, there is no need to fear. It’s a reason to celebrate instead!
THINK IT OVER
Think about the following:
- As you look back over this year, where do you see God’s hand on your life?
