NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS

by on Jan.01, 2013, under Personal, Worship

You’ve heard it all before. Next year I am going to:

“Eat less”, “Drink less”, “Quit smoking”, “Exercise more”, “Spend more time with the family”, ….

All well intentioned resolutions that rarely last the month, let alone the year.

What if you aligned your plans with God’s, so that they were more according to His will rather than yours?

God knows what’s best for us. We are made in His image and if we truly desire what He wants, our lives will be more fulfiling and honorable to Him:

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11

Consider Jesus’ prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane:

“Yet not as I will, but as You will.”

Now, there’s a new year’s resolution worth making and with God’s help worth keeping.
