Proverbs 16:9 says, “The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.” At the stroke of midnight on January first we entered into a new year and a new decade. WOW, it seems that time really does fly! Do you even remember what you had hoped to do ten years ago? What was then a future hope is now a distant past. But what about now? What are your hopes, goals, and plans for the future at this point in your life? The New Years is the most common time for us to think about these things.
What gives me comfort in an uncomfortably changing culture is that my God already has everything figured out, from my simple little life to major world events. I am thankful that I can trust Him. As the membership of Scotsdale Baptist Church makes our plans, I trust that God will direct our steps.
