Genesis 1:1-2:3; Job 1:1-2:10; Matthew 1:1-25

In the year king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord. Isaiah 6:1
I being in the way, the Lord led me. Genesis 24:27
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:1

I can’t think of better verses to start off a new year! Look to Jesus in all circumstances and He will become your focus and vision for the future. Walk in His way—let Him lead and guide you and you will testify to His awesome faithfulness and power. Make Jesus your focus and you will experience the fragrance of His sweet fellowship—which supplies all your need! What a marvelous way to approach this New Year! Make this your everyday resolution. —Deborah Manera

Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable,
And receives the impossible. —Corrie Ten Boom

DAILY READINGS: Gen. 1:1-2:3; Job 1:1-2:10; Matt. 1

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
2 Corinthians 5:17

Today, as we were chatting at the table about the tragic circumstances of some children, I made the comment to our visitors that many people don’t have a chance. One of our friends responded, “Some have a poor start, but everyone has a chance.” How true. The day of grace is still upon us and Jesus invites you to come, in repentance, to Him today. Trust Him for salvation and know His forgiveness and cleansing. You will have a new start. —J. Fleming

He died to make the way for you, so you might be forgiven
So you can know that you are on the road that leads to heaven.
—J. Fleming
