Today Reminder – 02 January 2014 (Day 2 – A New Horizon)

A reminder for today
"Have you ever commanded the morning to appear and caused the dawn to rise in the east? Have you made daylight spread to the ends of the earth, to bring an end to the night's wickedness? As the light approaches, the earth takes shape like clay pressed beneath a seal; it is robed in brilliant colours.  The light disturbs the wicked and stops the arm that is raised in violence.” (Job 38:12-15)

As each new day breaks the darkness and brings light to the world, we too are called to bring the light into a dark world. God speaks to Job and in this God asks the question - Have you ever commanded the morning to appear and caused the dawn to rise in the east? As I read this I am just in awe for a moment as I realise I cannot command the dawn to rise nor can I make daylight spread to the ends of the earth. God does that each day. God created all of this by His words.

A new horizon in our lives should be the understanding that God is in control and He seeks only good things for us. To understand that each day God blesses us with life and health and all our worldly needs. Yet some things we take for granted, like daylight or air or health or food or friends or family or work etc.

I find that we live each day forgetting that even the little basic things come from God and that we should be grateful for each blessing even the ones that is not so clear. God wants us to remember this as we approach our new horizons in 2014 – He is in control and as He commands the morning to appear and spreads light to ends of the earth, He is also there to help us and uplift us. As each new day begins, God will let the light guide us on our journey and direct us across our new horizons.

The light of Jesus will disturb those who are against us and stop them in their evil ways. Come my dear friend and let us allow God to take control in our lives and we humbly give Him our hearts. He will let the sun rise on our lives as we start our journey into 2014. Jesus is the way and the only way – let this be our message each day wherever we go.

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
