It is that time of the year again, the beginning of the year where everything is brand new. New year brings with it new hopes and dreams. At times, new year also brings with it reminders of buried dreams and failures.
Now that January is here, we will no doubt be hearing of the latest fad diets and must have books. Now i know we are supposed to be in the world but not of the world (John 17:14-15), but i cannot help but want to jump on this band wagon. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having faith and hope and having hopes for the new year.
Habakkuk 2:2 says , ‘And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, so he may run that reads it.’ I love this verse because it encourages us as believers to write our visions down and it ties nicely with Hebrews 11:1 which says, ‘Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see’. These verses are amazing because they show the starting ground of any dream or any hope and that is the planning stage where you write it all down and as time progresses you see yourself stepping out in faith and acting out what you have written. I believe writing down our visions is a bit like having a drawing board so that we can keep going back to it for pointers should we get stuck.
The Bible also tells us that we must act out because faith without works is dead so i encourage you and myself to write those resolutions down and act it out throughout the year. You will be amazed by what you will accomplish (With God’s help of course)
