5 Bible Verses to Guide You into 2022
As you step into a new year, you can find confidence in a never-changing God
The start of a new year can bring a lot of different emotions.
Anticipation. Weariness. Fear. Excitement. Discouragement. Impatience.
You might be experiencing some of these emotions as we look forward to 2022. Maybe you’re tired after a long and difficult year and dreading what the next year holds. Maybe you’re feeling disheartened about something in your life and are unsure of how to move forward in 2022. Maybe you have big changes on the horizon and are filled with anxiety and doubt.
God’s Word offers encouragement for every season. In the Bible, we learn how much God loves us, the countless ways he cares for us, and the many blessings he offers us through Jesus Christ. But one of the most precious truths we can discover in the Bible, as we anticipate a new year, is this: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8 GNT).
While we can’t know what 2022 holds or how our lives may change this year, we can rest in the knowledge that Jesus—and his eternal love for us—will never change.
Here are five more verses to meditate on as you look to God’s Word to guide you into 2022.
You can rest securely in your salvation through Jesus Christ.
For it is by God’s grace that you have been saved through faith. It is not the result of your own efforts, but God’s gift, so that no one can boast about it.
