Beginnings always mean that there’s a fresh start just like we’ve recently celebrated with the ushering in of 2016.
The book of Genesis records the beginning of creation; each day for six days, every animal and plant created until finally the first man and first women were made. Creation, the imagination and artistry of God, was exactly as He intended it to be and it was good. Each chosen person from Genesis to Matthew became a link in the passage of time that lead to the birth of the Messiah. Like evening and day, Matthew 1 records every life and death of each man and woman, from generation to generation, until one day the Promised Messiah finally came to earth.
Have you been waiting for a new season to finally begin and believe that with this new year it will?
God is a god of new beginnings but He is also trustworthy to finish what He has started. You may not have been able to see it in the past but whatever blessings He ordained for your life, you can be sure that it will come to pass.
Today, we start 2016 filled with promises and hopeful expectations yet we can’t forget that all of our days are in constant need of God’s mercy and grace. Jesus was at the dawn of creation and the very reason for the new covenant we get to be apart of today.
As you meditate and hope for what the upcoming days and months will bring, remember that Jesus is in this new beginning and in all the days ahead.
