Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. (Ecclesiastes 1:10, Holy Bible, King James Version.)
On this seventh day of January, New Year’s resolutions are broken as minutes tick toward another hour, another day, another month. A wise man speaks from ancient Scripture with a reminder that the past repeats itself and blends with the present. A mix of old and new doesn’t dwell on failures. Jesus gives hope for a brighter future in the words he spoke centuries later.
Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. (Matthew 28:20, Holy Bible, King James Version)
His promises are for today, tomorrow next week, next month. They are old, new and eternal.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, Your promises give me hope. Amen.
