Jesus is altogether sufficient for 2019!

Posted by:clifford


As we come to the last Sunday of this year, I am reminded of the faithfulness of our Lord throughout 2018. The cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night led the children of Israel throughout their wilderness journey from Egypt to the promised land for 40 long years. The Lord has been good and faithful to each one of us too!!

The lyrics of a well loved song go this way - 

I know who goes before me, I know who stands behind.

The God of angel armies, is always by my side.

The One who reigns forever, He is a friend of mine,

The God of angel armies, is always by my side.


Jesus Christ is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. He is the author and finisher of our faith. He is incredibly sufficient to lead us in 2019!
