John 10:9 – I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The world is struggling to enter into a New Year! People are thinking, planning, scheming and dreaming of a better situation or condition during the year that lies ahead. But the door they choose might be a mirage. Their schemes often go awry, their castles crumble and their dreams become ashes or vapor. Thus they struggle harder and harder to create newer doors and ways to only find more disappointments. When man sinks into the quagmire of such unfulfilled dreams and schemes, God comes to offer the perfect door for man to enter into the New Year which is the Lord Jesus Christ. God invites us to enter into the unknown and unfamiliar year that is ahead with confidence and courage through Jesus and abide by the plans and programs He has for you. His plans are perfect and His schedules are most certain to reach the right destination. His ways give us peace, rest and satisfaction in all that He directs us to do. He walks with us as we tread the pathways into the New Year. He meets all our emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual needs as we walk the miles with Him. His hands of protection will be around us throughout our lives. He will not leave nor forsake us no matter what we go through. His resources are available and adequate for us to enjoy each day as it unfolds. Not only that, He invites us to go to Him and through Him at no cost of ours because He has paid the price of our entry into a future with Him through His very life which He sacrificed on the cross at Calvary. All we have to do is to go to Him and knock at His door. If we knock, it will be opened for us. Once we walk into the future through Jesus, our entire unknown future will be looked after by Him. But it involves our willingness to abide by His ways and walk according to His has plans for us. It demands a willing obedience to walk with Jesus.
