The Road of Resolution

It is good to make godly resolutions, and these steps will help you to keep on the right road with God through the year. . .


Reaffirm your relationship with God.

He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? ~Micah 6:8


Look back on the past year and ask God to show you area of sin and weakness that might have hindered your spiritual growth.

Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. ~Psalm 139:23-24


Confess your sin and ask God to forgive you.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. ~1 John 1:9


Ask God to refresh you and to give you a new vision for the year ahead. 

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. ~Jeremiah 29:11


Ask God to help you see your life from His perspective, and renew your commitment to His vision and purpose for your life.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. ~Romans 12:2


Resolve to be faithful to God's purpose in your life and to glorify Him in the areas that He has revealed to you as you have prayed to Him.

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 3:14


Write down the things that God has revealed to you in prayer, and review them frequently, remembering that it is only by His grace that you are able to grow in Him.

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. ~Hebrews 4:16


I hope this will be of help to you as go about making and keeping your godly New Year's resolutions. Feel free to copy and print. Keep this in a place where you will see it every day. If you falter, don't fret -- just start over again. As a matter of fact, start over as many times as necessary for you to make this part of your daily life and walk with the Lord.  God's mercies are new each morning (Lam. 3:22-23) and He is with you (Matt. 28:20)

As a Christian, your relationship with God is the most important one and will help you in all your other relationships. So my prayer for you is that by using these steps you will go farther, reach higher, look lower, love greater, for Jesus Christ as we draw nearer to His return!

May God bless you today over and above what you are able to receive! 

For His Glory,
