God Blessed Morning Family!
There is a qoute from a poem written by Alexander Pope, "Fools rush in where Angel's fear to tread," meaning only foolish people act before they think ahead. As we enter the second day of a new year it is not unusual to have some anxiety as we anticipate what is to come. Don't let the mark of a new year create a rush of urgency in which you feel you must act on everything you desire for anything that is to occur will occur in His Divine Order of Time regardless if you rush into it. Some feel that if they don't get started now they will never accomplish their goals and that might be true but what they fail to realize is that their goals are not necessarily His Goals. For what we plan for may not be what He has ordained and as Jonah discovered you can rush to what you desire but in the end you may never see your goal for He has a Master Pland that holds the key to your destiny. "The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind." Isaiah 17:13 It is good to be motivated to accomplish your goals regardless of whether it is the start of a new year, but just take a moment to Be Still, and pay attention to the signs in which He is placing before you and only then will you Know that you are on the path He has ordained to great achievements. Be Still And Know That I Am.
