God has spoken once,
Twice I have heard this:
That power belongs to God.
Also to You, O Lord, belongs mercy;
For You render to each one according to his work. – Psalm 62.1-2

How are we going to deal with 2017? The year is ending on kind of a scary note. Things seem terribly unsettled, especially here in Europe. Brexit, the uncertainties about a new direction in the White House in foreign affairs, and recent terror attack on our cities have us all a little anxious.

Will we have the strength to deal with and get through the new year? What do all theses changes mean? Our culture which as traditionally supported and accepted Christian morality has gone from that to complacency to maybe even opposition in some circles.

Where are we going to find the strength to carry on?

God has said it – several times. Power belongs to the Lord. We don’t need to depend on our own power. ‘If we in our own strength confide our striving would be losing.’ Victory is assured. We need not fear that we are not strong enough because the Lord God is our strength for whatever may come our way.

Power belongs to the Lord. May we enter the new year confident of that truth.
