With a new year already unfolding, many are wondering “What will it bring? Will this be a good year or not? What should I expect with the economy, the nation, and the world in its present state?”
If you’ve been asking these questions, I have a promise straight from Scripture, just for you: The path of the righteous is like the light of dawn that shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day. (Pr. 4:18)
Now none of us is righteous by our own efforts; we receive our standing with God through faith in Christ alone. But because of Jesus’ finished work on Calvary, we believers can count ourselves among the ranks of the justified, for He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. (2 Cor. 5:21)
And so this promise of an ever-brightening future applies to every Christian who reads these words. Every year and season of our lives will improve as time goes by. So take it from the Lord Himself that this year will be better than the last. And they’ll just keep on getting better and better until that final, glorious hour when the Perfect Day at last arrives.
