Yes, my resolution is still alive, strong, and growing within me. How is your resolution (if you’re into that kind of thing)?
My resolution is to let the Spirit of Jesus become a greater part of my life, and have my self-centered self become a lesser part. As John the Baptist said of Jesus, “He must become greater; I must become less.” (John 3:30)
Am I doing any better at letting Jesus become a greater part of my life? Well, I’m not sure. My selfish ego is pretty stubborn, wanting all my attention, all the time. And lifelong habits are hard to change. But I take comfort in God’s promises, which are scattered generously throughout the bible. One of my favorites is…
“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalm 37:4)
God will work my resolution within me. Can you trust God with your resolution?
