Will the year 2009 be mine or divine? Of course God is God and He is Lord, whether I make Him Lord or not. But the answer to the question really lies in the court of the individual. The most mind boggling theological truth I have yet confronted is “the One person that could make me do right…doesn’t.” God has given me the ability to ‘choose.’
I often choose correctly. Occasionally I choose poorly. As I grow in my faith I know that I am never sinless, but certainly a mature Christian should sin less.
I want to choose God this year. May He be glorified in all that I do and say.
Blessings on your new year. Have you taken the time to set some goals for 2009? Today is the first day of the rest of my life. I get a fresh start! What a great God!
