A New Year’s resolution is a review of your work, conduct, achievements, and mistakes of the previous year – after you have done a checklist of your mistakes, then you seek for ways to improve in the following year. New Year’s resolutions are common among people, but the truth is that a lot of people soon go back to their mistakes and the flaws they had denounced when entering the New Year.
You need God to succeed
It will not be uncommon to see people talking about resolutions in the beginning of January, but after a while they return to their previous habits. To attain any greatness in life, you need God – not logic, wisdom, or academic qualification. 1 Corinthians 3:19-21 shares that the wisdom of the world is foolishness with God. Verse 21 says: “Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours.” You must understand that to achieve success in your New Year’s resolutions, you need God. Paul says in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Your strength to achieve success in 2020 depends on your relationship with the Almighty God and how disciplined you are with the things that concern God.
What are your resolutions?
Are you set to make uncommon achievements in 2020? Then Jesus is the way to follow. If you will allow the Lord to dwell in you, be assured that success is inevitable. John 15:5 says, “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” If you decide to walk alone without God, you must know that failure awaits you. No matter the resolutions and how disciplined you have cautioned yourself to be, they will all come to failure without Jesus. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He is the way to reach the greatness that awaits you in 2020, He is the truth about every situation that you will encounter in the New Year, and surely He is the life you must live in 2020 to reach the Promised Land.
God’s grace is sufficient
Congratulations people of God, as you see the year 2020, you will also enjoy God’s sufficient grace throughout the year. As you observe the instructions of the Lord and follow His leading, you will triumph over every flaw of your life. Every resolution you will set forth in 2020, the grace of God will uphold you to accomplish your targets.
Lean on God, trust in Him
When you surrender to the leading of the Lord and accept the guidance of the Holy Spirit, then you will enjoy the grace of the Lord that will make you to live up to the resolutions you have made. As you march into 2020, it is your year of great achievements; nothing will stand against your fulfilment. The God of all grace will uphold you with His hand of righteousness and will make you to shine for the world to see. You are blessed; go and possess the New Year.
