We have just entered into the new year. Last year has been hard for many families. Many went through terrible financial problems, different kinds of sicknesses and other problems. Last year was as well difficult for us. Enemy tried to humiliate, intimidate, threaten and even to kill but victory was on our side because we obeyed God in every step.

Bible tells us about many who obeyed God and did what God asked them to do and because of that they had to lose their lives. As they loved the Lord so much, they did not consider their lives to be important. Sometimes it is not easy to obey God and sometimes it is not easy to stand in the very center of the storm and still survive. When I look back and reflect on the unhappy occurrences of last year, my heart is filled with gratitude towards our loving Lord who graciously granted us one more year in our lives to glorify His holy name.

Despite all the promises of God, there were disappointing times in our lives. But God did mighty things and made us victorious in our battles. Apostle Paul says in 2 Cor 4:8-9, "We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed."

Also the Psalmist says in Psa 124:2-8, "If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, When men rose up against us, then they would have swallowed us alive, When their wrath was kindled against us; then the waters would have overwhelmed us, The stream would have gone over our soul; then the swollen waters Would have gone over our soul. Blessed be the LORD, Who has not given us as prey to their teeth. Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers; The snare is broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the LORD, Who made heaven and earth."

I am sure that this New Year will bring new and may be even more powerful challenges in our lives but the same God who protected us, took care of us, did not allow us to fall and the same God who brought us this far, will uphold us with His mighty right hand and help us to walk through this year also.

Yes, my friend, we have one brand new year before us. You might have gone through terrible times in the past year. You might have lost all your hope. You may be crying in your heart today. You might have seen only failure in your life in the past year. But look to Jesus, He can help you. He can wipe away all your tears. Forget your past failures, heartbreaks and your problems and look to Jesus. Trust in Him, He will make a way for you. Bible says in Psa 22:4-5, "Our fathers trusted in You; They trusted, and You delivered them. They cried to You, and were delivered; They trusted in You, and were not ashamed."

In the midst of problems and in the midst of trouble, He will not leave you alone but He will walk with you and give you rest.

We wish you all a very happy and blessed New Year 2004. May God hear from above and may all your dreams come true in this New Year. Visit for a very special greeting card: Click here

Promise for the year 2004

By Sherly Isaac

While I was praying God told me what will happen in this New Year.

Economy has started growing. It will grow stronger and stronger. Many new jobs will be created in this new year. Nation and people will prosper. This year will be an year of plenty.

Many parts of the world will experience great Revival. Revival that never happened in the history of the Church will take place. God will do mighty things. Many mighty miracles will take place in this year.

Those who are walking in the ways of God will flourish and will become great. God will bless those Christians who fear Him and He will bless their businesses, the works of their hand and their labor. Christian businesses will flourish and great prosperity and riches will come in the lives of people just as the Bible says about Job whom God blessed. We read in Job 1:10, "Have You not made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land."

Bible also says about Job, "this man was the greatest of all the people of the East."

In this year God will bless the work of your hand and make you great among others. Your possessions will increase and you will be blessed. And God will protect you and yours making hedge around you and your household and around all that you have. You will feel the divine protection of God wherever you go and on whatever you do.

Favor of God will go before you and do mighty things for you. God will bless you so that you will find favor in the eyes of people as Esther obtained favor in the sight of all who saw her and also the king. Esther found favor of the king and was selected to be queen. She found favor in the sight of the king and because of that she could plead for the Jews and could save them from destruction. In this New Year God will do the same thing for you. His favor will turn impossible situations into a possibility for you.

A very special Greeting Card for you!

We wish you all a very happy and blessed new year 2004!
