More people make resolutions on January 1, than any other day. What will you resolve to do in 2020? Paul says in Phil 4:11, “Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content.” Many will resolve to lose weight, or stop smoking or get back in shape.
Before setting any goals or resolutions, spend some quiet time with the Father thanking him for what He has done. Thank Him for coming as a baby and bringing hope to the world. Thank God for who He is, who you are and acknowledge that He is more than enough. Regardless of your state: in debt, family health issues, homelessness, no job – God is enough for you. It’s difficult to find that place but it can be accomplished through prayer and worship. God would rather have you to be complete in Him with zero resolutions than discontent in Him and hit every resolution you set.
Psalm 37:4 says: “Delight yourself in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
When we delight ourselves in the Lord, our desires will begin to align with His desires. Find that special place of contentment where the Father can show you just how complete in Him you are. Delight yourself in His ways! When you do this, any goal or resolution you set will be one that God can bless!
I Timothy 6:6: “Now godliness with contentment is great gain.”
