If you are going through difficulties or life trial seems to be a steep hill, have faith in all powerful God who will come to rescue.
Isaiah 40:29 (KJV 1900)
29 He giveth power to the faint;
And to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
God always gives enough strength for the next step
“From faith thus flow forth love and joy in the Lord, and from love a joyful, willing, and free mind that serves one’s neighbor willingly and takes no account of gratitude or ingratitude, of praise or blame, of gain or loss”
– Martin Luther
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) – Hebrews 10:23 (KJV)
It’s not easy. You will need to ask God for help to be faithful. Perhaps, this is a quick reminder that, we are dependent on our heavenly Father for everything. There is no need to boast about anything. The Psalmist long ago identified our dependency on God. Please keep praying in order to be faithful.
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. Psalm 51: 10-12 (KJV)
Our faith may be tested so that we may trust God’s faithfulness

Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another; and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. Malachi 3:16 (KJV)
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18 (KJV)
On account of what are we Christians? Everyone would say, “On account of faith”.
– St. Basil the Great
[The demon Screwtape writes:] Do not be deceived, Wormwood. Our cause is never more in danger than when a human, no longer desiring, but still intending, to do our Enemy’s will, looks round upon a universe from which every trace of Him seems to have vanished, and asks why he has been forsaken, and still obeys.
– C. S. Lewis (taken from The Screwtape Letters)
Have a wonderful new year as you start the new day with your family and friends.
Always remember to trust in God for He is faithful!
