At the beginning of a new year we often make resolutions to eliminate a bad habit or develop a new and good habit. That’s ok. Why not make it a biblical resolution? Here’s 3:
- Psalm 17:3 – “Though you probe my heart and examine me at night, though you test me, you will find nothing; I have resolved that my mouth will not sin.” Make a resolution to watch what comes out of your mouth. Ephesians 4:29 says, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”
- Daniel 1:8 – “But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the royal food and wine…” This was not a diet but to avoid food sacrificed to idols. Consider not eating foods that give you a guilty conscience or eating because you’re bored. 1 Corinthians 3:16 says, “Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s spirit lives in you?
- 1 Corinthians 2:2 – “For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. Desire nothing more than knowing Jesus better in 2021. Philippians 3:8 says, “What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ.”
Also be in prayer tomorrow for the 2 Senate races in Georgia that the election would be fair and honest. Pray Wednesday as Congress votes on whether to accept the electors votes or not. Pray that truth will be told in the presidential election.
