NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS…REALLY?

Raise your hand if you ever made a New Year’s resolution that you kept all year.

Yep. Just what I thought. I didn’t see any hands raised.

In the book of Proverbs, the wisest man in history wrote: “A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.” (Proverbs 16:9)

We can make the most important resolutions, and have the best intentions, but we fail to keep them. For the believer in Jesus Christ, starting the New Year isn’t about making resolutions and trying to keep them. It is about acknowledging Him in all our ways and letting Him direct our paths. It’s asking God for guidance and letting Him do what has to be done in and through us so that He gets the glory.

Let’s re-think our resolutions. Maybe the only resolution we should consider is submitting to God’s plan!
