The Only Resolution-Monday Motivation

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” -Matthew 6:33 (NKJV)

God will handle your entire life, if you just hand it over to Him. We try and try to fix our own lives. This is impossible. I saw a comic strip last week with two characters. One asked, “What are New Year’s resolutions?” The other character replied, “People’s to-do list for the first week of January.” Most people’s resolutions fade out so soon because people are trying to fix their lives in their own strength. Thankfully we don’t have to do that.

Jesus essentially says that if you just follow Him, then He will take care of the rest. If you do what He says, you won’t have anything to worry about. He will handle the bills, the job, the children, the relationships, and everything else. When Christ said, “all these things” that is EXACTLY what He meant! You don’t have to get everything under control in your life. That’s God’s job and He is more than qualified. Rest in Him. The only resolution you need to make is to put God first.
