Thought For Today - January 1 - Happy New Year 2013

Thought For Today -January 1 - Happy New Year ! 2013

 So today we begin another new year and new beginning in our lives!  We do not know what lies ahead nor what this  new year may have in store for us, but he who knows all things and holds the future does, and we need to begin  by seeking his counsel.
Anyone who is planning to go on a journey is very wise if he or she makes preparation in advance.  If he or she is going to be traveling by automobile, one is smart if he has his engine tuned up and the oil changed, and the fuel tank full.  A prudent  person will know where he is going, and how he is going to get there.  He will have acquired road maps, and will have studied them diligently.
    So it is with our journey through life, every new day we strike out on a new adventure, not knowing what a day will bring forth.  The sad thing with some of us is that when it comes to our daily trip through the activities and duties of each new day, we have failed to make adequate preparations.
    We who know the Lord Jesus Christ as our savior, need not venture out blindly into a wicked hostile world without being  fortified and strengthened for our journey.  We have an open door to God our Father, who, if we ask anything in the name of his son, will deny us nothing that is good for us. Before we begin our day, we can rise up a great while before  day and find a solitary place and get alone with God and pray, even as Jesus himself was known to do.
    “And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out and departed into a solitary place , and there prayed.” Mark 1:35
    If this was necessary for the very divine son of God to do, how much more is it necessary for us to  start our day?  How can we know the direction we should travel if we do not seek  the guidance of one who knows?
    “Cause me to hear thy loving kindness in the morning, for in thee do I trust, cause me to know the way wherein I should walk, for I lift up my soul unto thee.  Deliver me, O Lord from mine enemies,  I flee unto thee to hide me, teach me to do thy will, for thou art my God, thy spirit is good.  Lead me into  the land of uprightness.” Psalm 143: 8-10
