Looking for wisdom in how to prepare for a new year?
I have a few suggestions.
Don’t make resolutions you know you won’t keep.
Pray first, ask questions later.
And then pray some more.
Listen to the broadcast in the post I did right before this one that actually appears below this one.
Look back to see God’s work in your life, then look up to see Jesus and ask what He wants to say to you today.
Ask Him to help you hear His voice and make the plans to do the things that are His will for your life in the coming days. Make sure you write down whatever He tells you. Write down the things that you really want to accomplish. That makes it much more likely that you will do them.
If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open. James 1:5-8
So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12
Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth. Proverbs 4:5
Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Proverbs 4:7
