My wish for your #2020RESOLVE:
For those of you planning your fantabulous resolution(s) as 2020 approaches, think about making a RESOLVE to be like Daniel and his three friends, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego who were committed to action no matter the consequences.
Resolve to be loyal to God’s kingdom. Refuse to bow down to any earthly image or anything or anyone that does not honor God. Resolve to obey God. Make the right choices that he may be glorified. Resolve to trust God. Refuse to give up your convictions or quit to please the world. Resolve to stay faithful to God. Make a habit to communicate with God and put into practice your convictions and do what He says no matter what happens.
Resolve to not judge, gossip about, or dwell on the opinions of others. Dismiss the haters and naysayers who will throw you in a den of hungry lions to devour you because they want nothing but to see you fail. Resolve to let them go and wish them well.
Resolve to have some ride or die friends like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in your inner circle who are committed, dedicated, and determined to serve God regardless of the consequences. Resolve to never compromise your faith in God. No matter how difficult the journey you will travel in a foreign land not knowing the outcome. Resolve to not despair no matter what you’re facing or the trials you may endure. Persist in prayer and not in power for personal glory.
Watch how God work on your behalf. Watch how He intervene and stop the enemy in his tracks. Watch how He save you. Watch how He protect you. He’s sovereign. He got your back. RESOLVE 2020 is gone be better than ever before. RESOLVE to live a godly life for God’s glory! #Selah
Be blessed! – JD
Daniel 3:16-18 “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied to the king, ‘O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king. But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.'” (NIV)
