   In Haggai ch. 2, the prophet encourages the people to keep renewing the work of God, in several ways.  One way was he reminded them of God’s tremendous promises for a great future, that those promises are still valid.  For us too, we need to remember that the future really is as bright as the promises of God!    For the Christian the best really is yet ahead.  This short, brief life, as families thin out and graveyards fill up, is like a blip on the first page of our lives in view of eternity. 

 Life is a grand journey.  There are various seasons to everyone’s life.  Beyond that life is a series of new beginnings.  And each day there is a new sunrise.  God specializes in fresh starts.  Do you need a fresh start?

 When God is around, there is no room for pessimism!   No room at all.  Even when we have a temporary setback, and we all have them, sometimes too regularly, but that is all that it is, in light of eternity, a temporary setback.

     The victory has been won.  We know who wins!  The Lord Jesus doesn’t fight losing battles!  He has never lost a battle; He has never lost an argument.  And with Him, we’re on the winning side.        His side is already guaranteed to win.     Like 2 Cor. 2:14 says: ‘He always leads us in triumph.’

   Ask the Lord what your priorities should be, in this season of your life. Then don’t make excuses, but take that first step of obedience and then trust God to supply all that you will need to fulfill what He has planned for you.

   I hope you all can have a very joyful Thanksgiving season!
