I see posts on Facebook all the time about how you can click on the image to find out what the next year will bring. Will it be marriage? A new baby? A new career? Lots of money? Granted, it’s not meant to be taken seriously, but I doubt very much that I’ll be having a new baby at any point in 2023.

What will happen? Only God knows.

That doesn’t mean I shouldn’t make realistic goals and set a plan to meet those goals. That goes for any of us. But ultimately, the best plan is to fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, the only one who really knows what 2023 holds.

I know that in good or bad seasons, I’m in good hands. As Job said, the Lord gives and takes away, but either way, I’ll bless His name. Either way, God is good.

If you go to the end of the Bible, you read that the outcome is already certain. God wins, and all those who trust in Him will overcome. So if you know the ending is secure, anything that happens between now and then, as hard as it may seem at the time, can only lead to good because God is working all things together for good.

So I’m hoping for a good 2023, but I’m counting on a good God in 2023.
