Perpetual Wonder

I love the beginning of a new year.

We let go of the past and move forward into the future.

In some ways, we are like Abraham, who obeyed God and “he went out, not knowing where he was going” (Hebrews 11:8). He did it by faith and so must we.

Oswald Chambers encourages us with these words, applying Abraham’s situation to ours:

You do not know what you are going to do; the only thing you know is that God knows what He is doing. Continually revise your attitude towards God and see if it is a going out of everything, trusting in God entirely. It is this attitude that keeps you in perpetual wonder – you do not know what God is going to do next. Each morning you wake it is to be a going out, building in confidence in God.
Oswald Chambers

Oh I love these words and I pray you will take them as your own for the beginning of this new year.

I think about this duck swimming on the water and basking in the beauty surrounding it. Sometimes the waves just move it on. And sometimes it is gliding from one place to another. It’s very much living in the moment and making the most of it. I pray the same for us in this new year.

May we enjoy each moment, with eyes fixed on Jesus, gazing at His beauty and stopping with wonder, to drink in His glorious majesty.

May we cry out to Him with every need, and by faith, stand on His promises, believing He will answer, in His time and in His way, for His glory.

♥ Blessings and Grace to You!
