The best resolutions

Updated on January 3, 2013

Ones you can keep.

Every new years day many people make new years resolutions. Some it will be to lose weight, some it will be to stop a bad habit like smoking and the list goes on. Almost all will fail within a week.

Why nor make the best new years resolution this year?

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.”
Proverbs 3: 5 & 6

Instead of stubbornly, foolishly insisting on going your own way, give all your situations over to the wisest guidance councilor, Jehovah God.

Learn from the mistakes of others.

Moses, when God informed him he was going to deliver Israel took matters into his own hands and killed an Egyptian instead of waiting for God. It cost him forty years in the desert.

Jacob and his mother schemed to trick his father into giving him the blessing. It cost him separation from his mother and war between the Jews and Arabs to this day. His mother never saw her beloved son again.

The widow trusted God in 1 Kings 17 during a terrible famine and not only had all her physical needs met her only son was raised from the dead and would take care of her in her old age.

The little boy trusted Jesus with two fish and five loaves of bread and Jesus fed five thousand plus.

These are not quaint little Bible stories, they are real events.

So, doesn’t it make sense to trust Jesus with every decision in your life?

Speaking from personal experience, whenever I went my way it led to a lot of hardship, pain and ultimately failure. Whenever I went Gods way, although it was difficult, it led to great things being accomplished for Gods glory and a better life for me.

Prayer: Please Jesus Rohi (Jesus our Shepherd) help this little sheep to always be attentive to the sweet voice of my beloved Shepherd and to follow His command. I ask this in the name of the grestest Shepard Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

      Such a beautiful hub. It is really hard to trust now a days because you don't know who tells the truth. The little boy showed us a good example of trusting Jesus.

      Thanks for the reminder. :-)
