At this time of year, we as a people begin to reflect on our life and year that is coming to an end. We have goals set that were made or missed. In our reflecting, we forecast the year to come, again setting goals. Is there a spiritual aspect of this? Why yes, there is!
We resolute to spend more time with God. We study His Word learning of the promises previously spoken over our lineage. We focus on the promises He has made specifically to us. There are times when these promises appear that they are not coming to pass. This illusion can be damaging to our psyche and spirit. But here is a promise that we hold tight to. Luke 1:37 NIV says, “For no Word from God will ever fail.”
Oft, we as humans think that because the goal was not met in our timing, that we’ve failed. This is actually so far from the truth. Our timing is just our timing. God’s timing, however, is perfect. So for those, (myself included) who feel as if they have missed the mark, keep working. If God has not you to stop, or that it’s over, there is no need to give up. Continue to reflect on His promise to you. Continue working towards the destiny that has been written for you. I’ll leave you with one last promise that I personally cherish.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV says, “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart, yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” His promise will come to pass. But we must continue to do our part and fulfill our promises to HIm.
Love you, be blessed!
