(Jeannie Nigro) What’s on your mind as you head into 2016? Are you feeling overwhelmed with all that lies ahead of you or uncertainties in your job, family and relationships? Are you fearful of the unknowns in our world today—who will win the elections? Will terrorism increase in the U.S.? Will the economy collapse? Will our borders remain secure? Will we lose more of our freedoms? Will immorality get worse? Well, I’ve got good news for you! The Lord wants you to focus on only one thing in the new year—and that is intimacy with Him! To gaze upon His beauty!
You are worried and upset about so many things; but only one thing is needed (Luke 10:41-42). “One thing I have asked from the Lord, that will I seek after—for me to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to see the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple” (Ps. 27:4). I wish I could find adequate words to express just how intensely He desires intimacy with you. It’s the very reason He took death upon Himself even though nothing was more contaminating than death! Intimacy with God is your primary purpose for living, it’s the only thing that can’t change or be taken away from you, it will shield you from the last days’ deception, and it will give you the identity and security to stand strong in the face of persecution.
