Seven Blessings For The New Year

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!


Seven Blessings For The New Year

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."
(Deuteronomy 4:39)

UNDERNEATH- to support.
"The eternal God is thy refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms."
(Deuteronomy 33:27)

BEHIND- as a rereward.
"The God of Israel will be your rereward."
(Isaiah 52:12)

AT YOUR RIGHT HAND- to protect.
"Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved."
(Psalm 16:8)

BEFORE- to lead.
"I will go before thee and make the crooked places straight."
(Isaiah 45:2)

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."
(Psalm 125:2)

WITHIN- as Companion and Comforter.
"And I will put my Spirit within you."
(Ezekiel 36:27)
"I am crucified with Christ nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me"
(Galatians 2:20)

  1. This is such a blessing, Susan! Thanks for sharing. I personally think we can still do New Year things right through the month of January. I noticed that I had posted my goals for 2012 at the *end* of the month!

  2. These are great! I did a study one time about prepositions like this -- we are totally surrounded by God's love and care.


Thanks for taking a minute to read my ramblings and leave a comment! I appreciate it!
