Pastor’s Corner – Try God’s Way

By Rev. Dennis Van Gorp

Family Life Christian Center

In Numbers 10:10 we read, “At your times of rejoicing – your appointed feasts and New Moon festivals.”  For the Israelites, the beginning of each new season was a time of joy and celebration.

The New Year brought a time to make changes, to change one’s ways of thinking, to seek better or new advice, to start over if necessary.  Every 50th year was the Year of Jubilee, a fresh start for everyone.

We spend about 10 days after Christmas welcoming in the New Year.  We make promises to ourselves to do certain things:  either new ideas or the ones we’ve backed away from for years.  Seldom do we keep our New Year’s resolutions for very long.

Let’s try God’s way in Isaiah 42:16 – “I will lead you by ways you have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide you; I will turn the darkness into light before you and make the rough places smooth.  These are the things I will do, I will not forsake you.”

Again in Isaiah 30:21 – “Whether you turn to the right or turn to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it.’”

If you let the Lord God Almighty direct your life, you will have many reasons to rejoice and celebrate this New Year.  May 2014 be a blessed year for you and your family.
