In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. —Genesis 1:1
In the time it takes you to read this page, you will have entered a moment you have never experienced before. God said before we can form His name in our minds and speak it forth, He will be there! (Isaiah 65:24). Before any defeat-.-.-.-any distress-.-.-.-any sorrow-.-.-.-any pain or discouragement, God has already gone before you, making all the necessary arrangements to ensure that you will make it into the next moment of your future with Him. God never starts anything before it is finished. He's the Alpha and Omega. He knows the end before the beginning.
With God in charge, every moment can be a radically new beginning. In the next moment, if you will let God be bigger than the pain of the last moment, you will have a new beginning in Him (2 Corinthians 5:17).
Before remembering all you endured last year, think about where you are right now in God. And right where you are, God is there—greater than all your problems!
As you start this year, put God at the beginning of every day and every moment in each day. Let Him lead you through a year of victory!
Lord God, You alone are at the beginning of my day
and each moment in my day. Take control of my life.
Have Your way in my every thought and deed, and
I will give You all the praise and the glory for the
new thing You will be doing in my life today.
