December 31, 2020. Do not fear. You have come to the end, but at the end of everything is the beginning of something new. Celebrate the end of this year, but look forward to next year with anticipation. I WILL do a new thing. I WILL cause your light to shine forth to the world in such desperate need of hope. I WILL reveal My glory to the earth through those who love Me and are determined to follow Me.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
In a vision I saw a warning sign (yellow diamond shape), which read “Slow”. I believe this means that the transition into the new year will be a slow process, and we need to cool our jets to alleviate frustration. God is still on the throne, and we can trust Him to take us one step at a time and one day at a time into the new season. We praise Him for His faithfulness to us.
Psalm 23:1-6 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.
December 31, 2020. New things are ahead. You were concerned that the way you were going was not going to be right. It is right to be concerned, but I have you covered and you have been covered for a long time. All will not be easy. You have been told that. It is true, but you know how to believe Me when I tell you that it will not be as hard as it could be. Keep your attitude in the positive vein.

December 31, 2020. Would it not be pretty fair to say the Apostle Paul, in spite of his shortcomings, had it going for him? Despite his early persecution of the Jews prior to his dramatic conversion, Paul had one of the largest pendulum swings in conduct of perhaps anyone ever on earth. As radical a Pharisee as he was, his humble devotion to Jesus Christ through servanthood speaks for itself. Besides Paul, find others whom you can imitate. Imitate Jesus.

Isaiah 43:19-21 (NASB) “Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert. “The beasts of the field will glorify Me, The jackals and the ostriches, Because I have given waters in the wilderness And rivers in the desert, To give drink to My chosen people. “The people whom I formed for Myself Will declare My praise.” Jonas Bohlin
