Have you made New Year’s Resolutions yet?
Sometimes I make Resolutions with the best intentions, but all too quickly they are forgotten.
Does He have a plan?
Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord.So, how do I live out these plans, WITHOUT wasting precious time?
“Plans for hope and a future. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you.”
Paul writes in Ephesians, “Be careful how you live, not as fools but as those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity for doing good in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but try to understand what the Lord wants you to do.”
Have you ever thought about it? Maybe you’re thinking, “I didn’t know the Lord wanted me to do anything!”
So often, we only allow God into the “spiritual” part of our lives. We go to church on Sundays. We have our “quiet times.” We even are reading through the Bible. But, God wants so much more than that- He wants it all- my whole life. Not just the areas that I think are “OK” to give to Him, the “churchy things, GOING TO CHURCH, GOING TO LADIES BIBLE STUDY, RETREATS, SERVING IN THE CHURCH, NOT JUST THOSE THINGS, but every area, my marriage, my relationship with my kids, my home, my friends, my work, my free time. He wants every thought, every decision, every choice to be surrendered to Him, totally making Him Lord of my life!
