It is good to make godly resolutions, and these steps will help to keep on the right road with God through the year.
Reaffirm your relationship with God
He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Michah 6:8
Look back on the past year and ask God to show you areas of sin and weakness that might have hindered your spiritual growth. Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139:23-24
Confess your sin and ask God to forgive you. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
Ask God to refresh you and to give you a new vision for the year ahead.
“For I know the plans I have you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Ask God to help you see your life from His perspective, and renew your commitment to His vision and purpose for your life. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
Resolve to be faithful to God’s purpose in your life and to glorify Him in the areas that He has revealed to you as you have prayed to Him. I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14
Write down the things that God has revealed to you in prayer, and review them frequently, remembering that it is only by His grave that you are able to grow in Him. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:16
