But now, God’s Message, the God who made you in the first place, Jacob, the One who got you started, Israel: “Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you. I’ve called your name. You’re mine. When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you. When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you’re between a rock and a hard place,it won’t be a dead end— Because I am God, your personal God, The Holy of Israel, your Savior. Isaiah 43: 1-3
I love how God doesn't promise a life of ease. He promises to provide us with what we need to keep moving forward. I can look back on 2016 and firmly say I've experienced God as my Savior, as my Peace, as my Comfort, as my Healer, as my Friend, as the One who delivers, and as Lord. Moving forward, I expect to have more experience walking with the Lord and learning His ways. 2017 provides an opportunity to be even more productive and an opportunity to #TrueWorship2.0 from a place of greater knowledge of who God is. I plan to go deeper in my faith in the Lord and in my dependence on Him. I want to endure any trouble coming my way without anger and fear. The Lord is my source yesterday, today, and always. My prayer is for people to experience communion with the Lord in an extraordinary way. 2017 will be a year of great productivity. Watch for several #TrueWorship2.0 releases throughout the entire year. May God receive all glory, all honor, and all praise!
