“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine.” Isaiah 43:1 Jesus’ disciples encountered a stormy experience. They were on the Sea of Galilee when a windstorm whipped up. The storm was so violent that despite being experienced fishermen who know the lake well, they feared for their lives. But Jesus walked out to them and saved them. No one can predict with certainty how stormy the new year will be. We do know, however, that everyone will face storms. but we who have Jesus have our future securely moored to Him. Jesus, who did not fail us in the past, will not fail us in the future. How will you fare in the storms of the new year? If you’re anchored in Jesus, you have nothing to fear. Faith in Christ will keep us steady in the stormy sea of change.
