Resolutions for a New Year

Many Christians make New Year’s resolutions to pray everyday, to read the Bible everyday, and to attend church regularly.  These are fantastic resolutions.  However, these are things that we, as Christians are supposed to be doing anyway!  So, what sort of New Year’s resolution should a Christian make?  Here are some suggestions:  (1) Pray to the Lord for wisdom (James 1:5) in regards to what resolutions, if any, He would have us to make; (2) Pray for wisdom as to how to fulfill the goals God gives us; (3) Rely on God’s strength to help us; (4) Find an accountability partner who will help us and encourage us; (5) Don’t become discouraged with occasional failures; instead allow them to motivate us further; (6) Don’t become proud or vain, but give God the glory.  “Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun” (Psalm 37:5-6).  Happy New Year!
