God’s Resolutions

As we start to look forwards towards the New Year, this is often a time for reflection and to make resolutions. Many of us have struggled throughout 2021 and have mourned a lack of freedom in so many ways so what resolutions are you considering? For all they will be made in all sincerity, the statistics show that within two weeks a third of resolutions will be abandoned and by June over half will have been given up. So here is my recommendation for the best resolution for you to make this year—focus on God’s resolutions! Remember what Scripture declares about God; “19  God is not human, that he should lie,  not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfil?” – Numbers 23 vs 19. God’s resolution was made long before the beginning of a new year and His resolve will last longer than two weeks or six-months. God has resolved to never leave us or forsake us. When we have God, we have all we need. Material things can decay, disappear, and disappoint. They can be superficial, stained and stolen. But God will never leave us or forsake us. The promises of God are fulfilled to us in Jesus Christ, so we can claim His promises for ourselves. When you focus on God’s resolution, His firm decision to never abandon you or leave you, His promise can become your source of peace. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” –Romans 8:28. Because of God’s Resolution you can live with confidence that no matter what happens (yes even the bad things) God is working for your good and His divine purpose! Because of God’s unwavering, unchanging, unfailing resolve you can live with the assurance that nothing can ever separate you from the God who loves you and has resolved to never abandon you! Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed 2022.
