Dec 31 – What to Expect in 2014

It is New Year’s Eve. And a ‘Doomsday’ moment will take place in 2014 – and will determine whether the 21st century is full of violence and poverty or will be peaceful and prosperous, according to Professor Nicholas Boyle of Cambridge University. He says that in the last 500 years there has been a cataclysmic ‘Great Event’ of international significance at the start of each century, occurring in the middle of the second decade of each century. Time will tell if he is correct. Only God knows the future. But we can face 2014 with confidence if Christ is in our lives, and can say with the Psalmist, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want…” Ira Stanphill wrote a gospel song saying, “I don’t know about tomorrow, I just live from day to day. I don’t borrow from its sunshine, for its skies may turn to gray. I don’t worry o’er the future, for I know what Jesus said. And today I’ll walk beside Him for He knows what is ahead.”
