The Daily Grace - Moving Forward


Sometimes, we will think that we can see the hand of God best in the rearview mirror. Looking back, it's easier to understand why He placed us in the home that He did; why He brought certain people and circumstances into and out of our lives; why He permitted difficulties and pain; why He took us to different places and put us in various jobs and careers. In spite of these, let us always remember that there is a wise and loving God. His ways are perfect. His works of His hands are perfect. See how often God has assisted, directed, and managed the outcomes so faithfully.

Looking ahead, though, is not always so clear. Have you ever had that lost feeling when the road ahead seems twisted, foggy and scary? Before you move into next year, stop and look in the rearview mirror of the year gone by, and joyfully realize that God meant it when He said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you". So we may boldly say: "The Lord is my helper; I will not fear" (Heb. 13:5-6).

With the promise of God's presence and help in mind, you can move ahead into 2017 with utmost confidence. God's guidance in the past gives courage for the future. Entrust your future to Him. Welcome 2017 with a thankful heart, trustin His Name.
