Promises in 2020 and 2021

Devotion 29 Dec 2020

Luke 2:26-35

“Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you may now dismiss your servant in peace..." Luke 2:29

As we are about to end 2020 and enter 2021, there is a deep sense of uncertainty. Yet as a son or daughter of God, we hold on to God's promises.

In the verse above Simeon, a man of God, praised God for the fulfilment of God's promise to him, that he would not die until he saw the Messiah. For a long time this promise of the Messiah and salvation had not been promised. When would it be fulfilled? Or is it even real? Is it just a false hope? Yet God's promise is yes and amen because God is a faithful God and He never break His promise. He fulfilled His promise to Simeon. Let me repeat, God is a faithful God and He keeps His promises.

As the year end, would you take time to reflect on God's faithfulness and how He has fulfilled His promises to you. And as we enter the new year, what are God's promises in the Bible you want to keep in your heart? Take time to remember God's promises in the bible to you.

Prayer: Lord, I am grateful that You are great and faithful. I give thanks for your hand upon my life in 2020. Thank you that you do not break your promises. Not in 2020 and not any time. Thus I look forward to 2021 with hope because I have you with me. From a grateful son / daughter to you my Heavenly Father. Amen
