New Things For a New Year

Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it?  I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them.

Isaiah 48:6

I enjoy this part of the year because we can start to look forward to the New Year.  The New Year is an interesting time in which we can look back at the blessing, the triumphs and failures, the challenges, and the twists and turns from the past year.  But, at the same time, we can look forward to the next year.  No matter how good our previous year was, we can always be better!  In the next few days, we will look at some verses related to the New Year.

In this verse, we see that God says “I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them.”  This may come as a shock, but we do not know everything.  There are things that we do not know.  You might know some of the things that I don’t know and I might know some of the things you don’t know.  The point is, there are a lot of things that we do not know.

But God does know all things.  God can show us and teach us things, and He has promised to do so.  In this New Year, we can look forward to learning and receiving the things that God wants to show and teach us.  We can ask Him to show and teach us many things this year.  And He will, if we will only pay attention.  Those things may be hidden now, but He can and will reveal them.

What can we learn about the Lord and from the Lord in the New Year?  Whatever it is, we need to be ready to receive it!
