During this time of the year everyone change their habits. We think for a while about things we want to change from the previous year, but also things we want to achieve during the current year. Some are big decisions, some small adjustments. Either way, they all add up in the greater scheme of where we want to be later on in life.
I would hope that somewhere on everyones list there is a space for our faith as well... Whether it is to do more bible study, to go to church more often, to have an honest relationship, or to recommit to Him, they all count.
It is already 3 January, time does not stand still at all. These plans have to go be actioned at some stage. While we are at it, God also has plans for us. See what He says in His word:
Jeremiah 29:11 in the amplified version:
For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.
Jeremiah 29:11 in the NIV of 1984:
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
We can trust Him, He does what He says
