God is the way in 2021

As year 2020 ends and year 2021 begins, first I want to say congratulations! I also can’t resist shouting Hallelujah! At the same time, I am equally asking what the hullabaloo is about. I mean, New Year day is just another day; just one hour between 2020 and 2021 and yet so much can happen in an hour. So, I am not taking this privilege for granted, it is truly a miracle to be alive, God be praised! While we are on that topic, I wonder what God is thinking right now? Does he think the way we do? Obviously not; Isaiah 55: 9 says, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways, my ways” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my thoughts than your thoughts.”
So instead of making New Year resolutions that we often do not keep, I feel we should listen closely to what God will want us to do this year. Psalm 32:8 says, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.” What is God saying to you? What has he laid on your heart? Jeremiah 33:3 equally says, “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” So folks, God is the way this 2021.
I wish I could tell you that all the problems in the world right now (hunger, poverty, diseases, environmental degradation, moral decay etc.) will miraculously disappear; I wish I could tell you that our socio political slash economic and security problems in Nigeria will equally disappear but that will be telling a blatant lie, and will you even believe me? I know how in Nigeria, we are quick to crucify the people who tell the truth; people who are bold enough to say Nigeria is a failed state are being bashed right , left and center. People who are bold enough to tell the government to wake up from its slumber are being harassed endlessly; nonetheless, the truth cannot be hidden for long, one day it will prevail. And until we begin to call a spade a spade, there is no progress to be made in our polity. However, as a people, we must keep our hope strong, truly, hope cannot disappoint, as long as you don’t give up!
To the rest of the world, remember God’s got you no matter what! His grace which was sufficient in year 2020 is still abundantly available this year 2021, tap into it. If you have previously joked with your relationship with God, I want to encourage you; please make amends this New Year. Every good thing you are searching for can be found in Him. Happy New Year Folks! May your lips sing praises, may your hearts rejoice and may your feet dance now and always! Amen.
