2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” –Rom 12:2

 

As we usher in a New Year, many of us will make New Year’s Resolutions.  By definition, a resolution is “a firm decision to do or not do something” (dictionary.com).  The intent is to start a good behavior, or end a bad behavior.  Among the most common would be to lose weight or get in shape.  Unfortunately, only about 8% of all resolutions are achieved.  This is a pattern to which we as Christians are admonished not to conform.

In order for a resolution to have lasting effects, we must first realize that this is a long-term commitment that requires the following:

 

  • Make a commitment
  • Be serious about your decision
  • Be organized
  • Make a plan
  • Use your resources
  • Find an accountability partner
  • Be willing to make sacrifices
  • In order to change a behavior, you must learn to do without
  • Follow through
  • Just because it gets difficult, don’t give up…stay the course!

 

Don’t be afraid to step out in faith, and trust God to help you achieve a goal.

If you apply a little drive and tenacity to your resolution and stick to it, you might just be amazed at what God can achieve in your life.

 

Heavenly Father, give us the wisdom to make proper resolution in our lives.  Give us the desire to serve you and follow through with our commitments.  In Christ’s name, amen.
