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)

“But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting” (Micah 5:2 Holy Bible, King James Version).

This single event would shine a spotlight on an obscure village for the whole world to see.

Prayer: Eternal God, tiny Bethlehem was destined to be the birthplace of Jesus. Nothing could change that because Your prophecies and promises are certain. This gives me great faith. You have known my future from the beginning and You are in control of events in my life, too. Amen.
