TIME FOR RESOLUTION
Many people who claim they don’t make New Year resolution still make resolution. Don’t be deceived by them and decide not to make resolution. As a matter of fact, there is nobody on earth that does not make resolution. The difference is just timing. In this article, I want to talk about time and resolution especially helping you see the times that making resolution is every important.
There are two most important times I believe you should make resolution.
TIME OF CONVICTION
One of such time is the time of conviction. As a young person who wants to become a great man, you should always appraise yourself on regular basis to know what to starts doing and what to stop doing. When you realize areas you need to make adjustments in your lifestyle, make them. You don’t have to wait till the beginning of the year or month, just make a strong resolution at that point.
When you read a books, attend seminar or listen to a talk and realize that there are changes you need to make in your life at present, resolve to make them.
When you embark on a project or do certain things in certain manner and could not get desired result, analyse the process and if you find out what not to do again in your next project take note of it. Make strong resolution not to do them again.
JUST BEFORE A NEW SEASON
Another important time I believe you should make resolution is at the beginning of a new season. Notice that I said, ‘season’ not year. New seasons could be gaining admission into school, entering a realtionship, starting a business or starting a home. At such points, we should make resolution. Our resolution at this point is deciding what do and never do in the new season you are entering. As an example, if you are entering a relationships, you can resolve, among other things, not to stay in a solitary place with your lover, hug or kiss to avoid transmission of current… (you get?). Also, you could resolve to work for your boss with all your might not minding whether he treats you well but having in mind that it’s actually God you are working for.
See, you don’t make resolution at the point of pressure but when everything is going smoothly. You know it was reported that when Daniel entered Babylon, he resolved not to defile himself even before the offer was made to him. My friend, it’s risky to enter a new season in your life without making resolutions on your life style when you get there. You may find it very difficult to withstand pressure when you must have entered the season.
So, what about New Year Resolution?
I don’t believe in it at all!
I make resolution when I realize that there is a need for change of my lifestyle or before I enter a new season, if this falls within New Year, it’s just a mere coincidence.
May God strengthen you to keep you resolutions in Jesus name.
