New Plans, New Challenges

New Plans, New Challenges

“Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long”
Salms 25:4

After a 2020 that has changed our lives, we have many reasons to look forward. Furthermore, we must pay attention to the new opportunities that are presented to us. As usual, we start a new year full of plans and expectations. And this 2021 is no exception. However, from all the goals and objectives that we plan, we cannot leave out the most important one of all, wait and trust in the guidance of our sovereign God.

It is important to understand that God wants us to discern the times in which we live. We will have the assurance of our Lord’s guidance as long as our plans are in tune with His purposes.

There is nothing better than having our lives in God’s hands! When our lives rest in His hands, our times and plans will too. It is nice to know that our existence is not a waste, but that each day and each year is an extraordinary opportunity to receive what God has for us!

So, with a new year come new plans to fulfill and new challenges to overcome! It is a great joy for us to know that we have new opportunities to make the right decisions, as we follow His direction in our lives, like a boat following a lighthouse. For Global One80, our next challenge is to expand our borders, to have more leaders and continue our mission to serve the Lord in the world.

We invite you to continue your prayerful support and encourage you to plan a great 2021. What will you do with your life in this New Year that is about to begin?
