“And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.“
Happy New Year! It’s that time of year where many of us decide to change things or make resolutions for what we’ll do this coming year. Go to the gym, eat better, etc…these are all common resolutions that we make.
But, how often do we make spiritual resolutions? What’s our plan for becoming more like Christ?
Jeremiah 29:13 is my spiritual resolution for this New Year. I am committing to seeking the Lord in everything with all of my heart.
And I know that most of us are always trying to be closer to God. It’s something that we as believers know we should be doing. Yet, I think we often don’t zero in enough on it. We seem to think that praying every day and going to church will just make it happen. But I want to encourage you to join me and really focus on this resolution. Create a plan to help you accomplish your goal. Make it your highest priority. We can’t find ourselves with a general attitude of “trying to be more like Jesus.” Instead, we must develop action points we can measure ourselves by. Let’s commit to having our quiet time every day. Let’s commit to serving with a ministry consistently. Let’s commit to studying His Word in depth.
Specific actions will lead to results!
James 4:8 says, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” That is a promise! We are told throughout Scripture that we will find the Lord when we seek Him.
As the New Year has rolled in, commit with me to seek the Lord with all our beings. That’s a resolution to get excited about!
