New Year’s Resolution December 31

Scripture Selection: Ps. 59:16-17; Prov. 31:25; II Thessalonians 1:11-12

Food for Thought: Prov. 31:25

I really like New Year’s Eve. I guess it’s because I like new beginnings. I am a “morning person,” and I like Mondays for the same reason. The future is full of hope and excitement for the unforeseen adventures ahead.

I also like New Year’s resolutions. It is a good thing to do some soul-searching and make decisions that form me into a better person before the Lord and man. Some people do not like resolutions because they rarely keep them. If the resolutions aren’t kept, then they aren’t truly resolutions. A person who is resolute and resolved is one who is determined and decided, with a fixed purpose. That person achieves the resolution.

So go ahead. Get before the Lord today and let Him guide you in your resolutions and give you direction for the New Year. You may also want to use today’s scriptures as your declaration to daily praise God for His goodness, strength, protection, and unfailing love that He has shown you throughout the year and will continue to do in the one to come.

May God fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power in you so that Christ be glorified in the New Year. Happy New Year!

    Great Psalm. I am fond of most of the Psalms. As a child, we were told to memorize the 23rd Psalm. I will often use the Psalms in devotional service.
