New Year’s Faith Filled Resolutions

Faith Filled Friday, January 1, 2021 by Connie Terpack

1. Put God first. Our final destination should be our primary focus. Having Jesus in your heart and knowing he has saved us from our sins is the most important step anyone can take. Jesus will help you deal with all your trials, tribulations, and temptations.

“For our conversation is in heaven, from whence also we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ” (Philippians 3:20).

2. Keep your faith on solid ground. Don’t let politics, your job or your family take away your faith in God. If you have to work on Sunday, try going to church on Sunday or Wednesday evening. Spend more time with your Christian friends than those who aren’t.

“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?” (1 John 5:4,5).

3. Make the Bible your standard. Not every Christian holds to the same beliefs. God has a different path for each of us. Read your Bible daily. It teaches you how you ought to live. When you feel confused or unsure turn to the infallible Word of God for direction and comfort.

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding.” (Proverbs 3:5)

4. Spend more time in prayer. How many hours did you spend on your cell phone? Or how much TV, Netflix, or YouTube do you fit into your hectic schedule? It is easy to get bombarded by the never ending parade of media. It is good and often necessary to stay informed, but not at the expense of not spending time with Jesus. The more time you spend with Jesus, the more time you will want to be with him.

“He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.” (Deuteronomy 32:4)

5. Thank the Lord often. We don’t always think about thanking the Lord for the things he does daily. I thank him when I wake up, or when I’m driving and arrive safely wherever I was going. I often fail to say grace at each meal, but I do thank him in my bedtime prayers for giving us enough to eat.

“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.” (Psalm 100:4)

For God so loved the world

that he gave his only begotten Son,

that whosoever believeth in him

should not perish but have everlasting life.

For God sent not his Son into the world

to condemn the world;

but that the world through him

might be saved.

John 3:16-17

May you all have a happy and blessed New Year.
