The journey ahead should be measured by the milestones we’ve already crossed. Looking back on these monumental pillars of our past, let’s keep fresh God’s grace and tender mercies—“the tears He has wiped away, the pains He has soothed, the anxieties removed, the fears dispelled, the wants supplied, the blessings bestowed” (E.G. White). There will be new perplexities in the journey ahead, but, as in the past, the trial will not exceed the strength that shall be given us to bear it: “As your days, so shall your strength be” (Deuteronomy 33:25). Therefore, whatever challenges may come, strength proportionate to the trial will be given. The secret of a happy New Year? Count your milestones.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
