"If this be a happy new year, a year of usefulness, a year in which we shall live to make this earth better, it is because God will direct our pathway. How important, then, to feel our dependence upon Him!" – Matthew Simpson

Simple: If this is a happy new year, that is useful and that we will make earth a better place, it is because God directed us that way. It is then even more important to be dependent on God.
