Every year we pledge to “do better” whether that’s a pound or two off our mid-section, or an unrealistic exercise regimen. Focusing on our New Year’s resolution has become easier by what God has said. “But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
Instead of living life and improving ourselves within our own strength, as a Body, let’s seek His righteousness of faithfulness first. Here’s what I mean. A woman in my church frequently talks about all of the ways she needs to improve. Constantly, this blessed child of God would make plans to eat better, but hours of research and preparation later she would be back to eating a stack of pancakes with extra syrup and butter.
If we become faithful through the righteousness of Christ the victory is ours. This New Year lets strive to seek out the Kingdom of God and His righteousness first, and begin to live life, His life in ours! Remember that “He that dwelleth n the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” Psalms 91:1
