6. A New Tomorrow
Slide 6 of 6
Hope for the days to come is something to stand thankful for when we feel the strain of circumstances now as well.
Each day holds new mercies, new discoveries, and new hope.
Psalm 100:4 inspires us to “enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever, His faithfulness continues through all generations.”
His faithfulness is not limited to a single generation or time or year, and we can step into His courts thanking Him for all He has done, all He is doing, and all He will do.
Dream with God for all the possibilities of what could be and take advantage of the joy that will come now, rejoice that He has not forgotten us, rejoice that so much good is coming, and rejoice that there are adventures to live and jovial tears coupled with glad hearts to come.
Partner with Him now to build, work, or strive towards these things to come as well. Perhaps He is developing in you a new skill, hobby, or work during this time of quarantines and stillness.
Rejoice with Him in what He is building, and work with Him to step into the fullness that can result. The most surprising glories can come from life’s unexpected times.
Thank You for this time. Thank You for choosing us for such a time as this, and for allowing us to be alive during this age. Lord, help us not fall prey to the attacks of the enemy through anxiety, depression, or despair. Help us to partner with Your Holy Spirit to step into the joy, victory, and goodness You have for us. Grow in us a new hope, a new spirit, a new season in which we rejoice despite all we see. We know that the dawn will come, but Lord until it does we thank You for abiding with us in the dark. We thank You for all You are doing, all you have done, and all You will do. Help us find joy this Thanksgiving and perhaps make this a Thanksgiving where food is not the centerpiece, rather, genuine praise for You is the most remarkable aspect of the day.
In Jesus name we pray.
