Looking into 2012

From the possible looming economic crisis to the ridiculous prediction that the world will end, no one really knows what 2012 will be remembered in history for. Yet whilst some things are far beyond our control, there are others which are not.

Drawing close to God is not a passive enterprise but requires us to take some concrete initiatives. That is why the Scripture says ‘The nearer you go to God, the nearer God will come to you’  James 4:8. If we invest our time and effort in prayer we will certainly find that God will meet with us in a new and intimate way. We will be as close to God as we want to be.

This relationship goes far beyond time: 2012, 2013, 2014 and so on will all come and go. Eternity will not.  Really the best resolution we can all take at the beginning of this New Year is to seek God in truth more seriously than before being assured of His Promise:

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Jer. 29:13

Have a blessed New Year
