As we return home from this blessing of worshipping God where He has placed His name, we need to prepare to succeed in this coming year. Since we are the objects of God's mercy, He will give us the victory through stirring up the Spirit of the Holy God and continuing to rely on Jesus and fulfilling the mission we have been given in this age.
