Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (II Corinthians 5:17 NKJV)
This coming new year most of us will begin our New Years resolutions and most likely never follow through on them! It’s inevitable! It happens every year! I say, lets skip the resolutions and make a pledge instead! A pledge to follow Jesus! A pledge to put Christ front and center so the rest will flow naturally!
Jesus tells us, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:37-38 NKJV)
Truly believe in Jesus and follow Him in all your ways and you will be able to do all things! And you won’t need a New Years resolution! And out of your heart will flow rivers of living water!
Now make all things new by changing your ways today! Take the pledge! Ask Jesus into your heart and ask Him to enable you for His kingdom! Ask Jesus to be the Lord over your life so He can guide you and direct your paths! Take the pledge, read His word daily, and do what it says! You won’t regret it! It’s the best thing you’ll ever do for your life! I tell you the truth!
Today is the day that you heart will hear His voice! Listen closely, He’s calling you to come to Him! Pray to The Lord and ask Him to give you the strength you need to overcome all things!
I ask that You would come into my life; that You would dwell in my heart and be The Lord over my soul and my life. I am a sinner, there’s no doubt about that! Please forgive me of all my sins and help me to live a life that’s pleasing to You! A life that needs no failed attempts at New Years resolutions! A life that stores up treasures in heaven and glorifies You in all that I do! Help me to stay focused in Your word daily so I can overcome all things, and be all that I can be, in You! Help me to live the kingdom life, a righteous life that shows Your love through me! I can’t do it on my own! I need Your help! Not by my will, but Yours be done! And It is in Your name that I pray, amen!
