Here's another little New Year's gem I came across the other day. Since it's only January 3rd, we can still do New Year things, right?! I liked this because it is scriptural, each blessing straight from God's Word. I hope you enjoy it!
May the Lord's presence this coming year be:
ABOVE YOU- to guard.
"Know therefore this day...that the Lord He is God in heaven above."
UNDERNEATH- to support.
"The eternal God is thy refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms."
BEHIND- as a rereward.
"The God of Israel will be your rereward."
AT YOUR RIGHT HAND- to protect.
"Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved."
BEFORE- to lead.
"I will go before thee and make the crooked places straight."
ROUND ABOUT- to shield from storms.
"As the mountains are round about Jerusalem so the Lord is round about His people from henceforth even forever."
WITHIN- as Companion and Comforter.
"And I will put my Spirit within you."
"I am crucified with Christ nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me"
