Anywho, I'm excited about the new year. I'm usually not a resolution person, so the New Year just brings a sense of anticipation for me. But this new year was a little different. I started contemplating what I could do differently. I even thought it would be a good idea to see what the Scriptures suggest I do differently. Boy, there's a lot! But the more I began to dig, the more I realized that the changes I'd make are ones that God has to make... It seemed pointless to me to make a resolution to do God's job for Him! So, I really began to dig in for my part. What can I really do? I came across a Scripture I'd read before, but it jumped at me this time. The Scripture is John 6: 28-29. Some folks have come to Jesus and basically asked about making a resolution that would please God. 28Then they asked him, "What must we do to do the works God requires?" 29Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent." When you couple that with Galatians 5: 22-23, Philippians 1:6, 2 Cor. 5:17, Galatians 6:15 it becomes clear that every area of my life that could be better would be better if I'd just let God be God to me in that area. If I would simply allow my belief in the one God has sent to consume my need to be my own deity, then those areas that need "resolution" would be resolved! So, I made one resolution this year. I will believe. I will believe more, more passionately, more consumingly, more deeply. I am resolved to believe!
