Tonight, a lot of us will stay up later than usual, but others of us will go right to bed at the same time only to be wakened by the fireworks ushering in the New Year. By today, most people have set New Year's resolutions or are at least thinking about making changes in their life. I have found that resolutions don't work for me. But, what does work for me is making a commitment to God. I mean, I am going to try my best not to renege on my promise to Him. Without it, I'm more lenient on myself and more likely to release myself from it than I am if God is the one keeping me in check! Besides, when you have the Holy Spirit helping you, it's just easier. So this is my challenge to you: make a commitment to God to read your bible daily and spend some time in prayer talking to Him. I guarantee you that He will help you find the time. So what do you say, won't you join me and take on this challenge?
It is the LORD your God you shall fear. Him you shall serve and by his name you shall swear. Deuteronomy 6:13
