Good New Year’s Resolutions
It seems that many resolutions are broken quickly. I always remember our children, when they were young, making New Year Resolutions. They resolved to give up green beans and turnip greens. They made resolutions they knew they could keep. Here are some good resolutions for you to make this coming year –
I resolve like…Noah to live righteous in a wicked world (Genesis 6:8-9).
I resolve like..Enoch to walk with God (Genesis 5:22).
I resolve like…Abraham to live by faith (Hebrews 11:8-10).
I resolve like…Aaron & Hur to uphold the hands of my spiritual leaders (Exodus 17:12).
I resolve like…Caleb & Joshua to refuse to let superior members lead me astray (Numbers 4:6-9).
I resolve like…Joshua that our family will serve the Lord (Joshua 24:15).
I resolve like…Esther to boldly speak for justice, whatever the consequences (Esther 4:16).
I resolve like…Job to trust in God when I do not understand His ways (Job 13:15).
I resolve like…Daniel to continue in prayer (Daniel 6:10).
I resolve like…Andrew to try to lead my relatives to the Lord (John 1:40-41).
I resolve like…Stephen to have a forgiving attitude toward those who hurt me (Acts 7:60).
I resolve like… Mary to obey God in heartache (Luke 1:38).
I resolve like…Onesiphorus to be refreshing to others.
I resolve like…Paul to forget the past and press toward the mark before me (Philippians 3:14).
I resolve like…Jesus to live for others (John 15:12).
I resolve like…the Disciples to fulfill the great commission to preach the Gospel and teach the Word of God (Mark 16:15).
I resolve…like John on that I will look forward for the Lord’s return (Revelation 22:20)
I resolve….That with God’s help I will seek to make this coming year my best ever!
