What are your New Year’s resolutions for 2015? Exercise more, eat less, set a budget or pay off bills? It is a great time of year to evaluate what we would like to do in the New Year. But what are your Godly New Year resolution or do you even set any? What is God calling you do different in 2015.
God wants us to be more deliberate about His mission to the world and to line up our resolutions with His plans. We can resolve to help more people in the coming year by being the hands and feet of Jesus to a suffering world. Resolutions can include starting a Bible study, attending church more regularly, helping a sick neighbor, visiting the sick in hospital, or donating to a worthy cause each month like ours at Orphan Relief Effort. They are so many ways to make a difference. Seek God in prayer to find out how He is calling you. Isaiah 43:18-19 tells us
18 “Do not call to mind the former things,
Or ponder things of the past.
19 “Behold, I will do something new,
Now it will spring forth;
Will you not be aware of it?
I will even make a roadway in the wilderness,
Rivers in the desert.
God has put His plans for 2015 into motion, He is doing something new. Will you join with Him in this work? He is calling you to join Him. Will you answer that call for 2015?
