A Bible Promise for the New Year

A Bible Promise for the New Year

We all need hope and strength to keep moving forward. Here’s a Bible promise to help you get started in the New Year. It’s one of my favorites:

But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, They run and don’t get tired, they walk and don’t lag behind (Isaiah 40:31, MSG).


Lord, as a new year approaches, help us not to look back with regret, but with gratitude that You have brought us through another year. Help us to look up, as we wait on You. You are the One who gives us strength. Fuel our lives with new stamina this year, and fill us with new hopes and dreams that You have blessed. Use us to bless others. Our hope is in You, Jesus. Thank You for the blessed promises in Your Word that bring joy and hope to tired spirits. This year, help us to soar like eagles.

Day-votedly Yours,

    Rebecca, I love your quote “Hope begins when our strength ends” – it ties in with waiting on the Lord to renew our strength. Waiting has never been second-nature to human beings (I speak for myself). This New Year I commit to waiting on the Lord, to hear His voice, to seek His face (takes focus) and no matter what, to keep His peace in my heart – He is after all the Prince of Peace. I have realised it is all about making choices every hour of each day to wait on the Lord, not in recline but in mindful submission, even in the midst of busy-ness. God Bless you Rebecca for your Servant’s heart, you serve Jesus first so you can then serve Him in ministry. May your New Year be blessed with His love, protection and provision. Coralie x
