Today is the last day of the decade… wow! 

You may be excited, or anxious, about this new beginning. 

The unknown aspect of a new year, especially a new decade, can generate many questions that leave us feeling unprepared or anxious. 

But I have good news for you!

God already knows where you will be in the next year, even the next 10 years, and He has good plans for you. He has plans to prosper you, plans to make your heart’s desires come to pass, even plans of redemption when we inevitably mess up or make the wrong choices. 

Take a moment to encourage yourself with these verses from God’s Word:

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ ” ~ Isaiah 41:10 NKJV

“In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul.” ~ Psalm 94:19 NKJV

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;” ~ Philippians 4:6 NKJV

God’s got you in 2020. Cast your anxious thoughts on Him and let His peace wash over you. 

The unknown can tempt us to be anxious or fearful but focus on God’s good plans for you and the scriptures written above. You are precious to God and He has wonderful things in store for you in the 52 weeks that are ahead.
