Proverbs 19:21 A person may have many ideas concerning God’s plan for his/her life, but only the designs of HIS purpose will succeed in the end.
Many people make resolutions: lose weight, read the Bible, clear out the clutter, exercise more, get married, get a new job, etc. Those are human hopes for 2019. While some of those hopes may happen, God’s timing trumps our resolutions. His path may have different twists and turns than our plan.
Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path.
Isaiah 55:9 As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, My thoughts higher than your thoughts.
We have to stay in-step with God. We must be intentional in seeking His path. We need to unplug from social media, games, life’s distractions and turn to God’s word – the Bible – for guidance. We need to be still and listen for His voice.
Personally, I stopped making resolutions years ago. I want to be my best everyday. I don’t need to wait for a holiday to start managing my time or taking care of my body. Tomorrow never comes…there’s always another tomorrow. Or is there?
Here’s the take away: Focus on God and live as if today is the last day of your life.
May God richly bless your 2019! lg
