Good morning and many blessings to you this new year!
A co worker asked me while we were clocking into work, “What’s your new year resolution for 2020?” I answered by saying “I don’t have any.” That is something I may done once or twice growing up. By now as an adult, lost interest. I will say it is less of stress to not put yourself thru something like that.
Which then gave me a curious mindset to wonder why people go through making these kinds of “promises” or goals.
From what I have learned that is an ancient Babylionan thing of worship to thier gods.
Babylonians made promises to their gods at the start of each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay their debts. The Romans began each year by making promises to the god Janus, for whom the month of January is named.
Now from the mindset of a Christian who knows there is only one GOD, the goal to having success in any goal is to know we can not make it without our GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS our savior. I know I can not for sure!
“For with God nothing shall be impossible.”
King James Version (KJV)
If we do not ask GOD to lead us and we so things in the flesh and not the spirit then we are in a position where we can fail. Look at how the Babylonians failed from praying to false gods.
There is only one and only true living GOD who is the creator of all heaven and earth. Period. With GOD we can succeed. Here are some Bible verses to encourage you as only the word can.
