Happy New Year!! Many may have been thinking about what they would like to see happen in the new year. Resolutions and goals were most likely part of the conversation of the New Year. Be sure to keep in mind when setting goals or resolutions that you should first take time to bathe the decision in prayer. God has a plan for each of us A plan of what our life is to be, what he would like for us to do, where he would like for us to be. The plan for us contains all but we were also allowed free will and that is where we get into trouble at times. Many times we think we would be happy if things were our own way but in reality if we had taken the time to pray about every decision we make in life our lives may be easier.
Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes James 4:14
James tells us in this verse that our lives are limited and we are only here for a short period of time. We do not know what tomorrow may bring or even if we will see another tomorrow. We should not make plans at whim as it is God's will that we live out.
Say "If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or do that" James 4:16
All decisions, resolutions and goals should be taken into prayer. So while you are creating that list of resolutions, plans for the new year and goals be sure to take it all into prayer.
