Resolution One: I will live for God. Resolution Two: If no one else does, I still will. ~Jonathan Edwards

When you look forward to the New Year, know that I am here in this minute. When you set your sights on your goals,you move about your life without Me. Instead, bring to Me in prayerful submission, all your hearts desires. Write them and leave them. Lay your dreams at My feet with reverence for all I Am. Trust Me with a heart that is grateful for all that you have, all you have endured and all you are enduring, because I am here. Feel my Holy Presence in all you do;Let that calm you and give you hope. Look forward to My blessings, because I long to shower you with many. You are My precious child. You are bought and paid for at such a great price because I love you. See your value, that I pursued You. You are My beloved, an heiress to the richest of blessings, beyond anything you can imagine, accept that and because of that: Be wise, be frugal, be content, be kind, be patient, be prayerful, but most of all, be aware of Me in all you do.

Prayer
Matthew 7:7-8(NIV)
Ask, Seek, Knock
7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
Philippians 4:6(NIV)
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Romans 8:26(NIV)
26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.
Romans 8:26(AMP)
26 So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance.

Psalm 37:5(MSG)
5-6
Open up before God, keep nothing back;
 he’ll do whatever needs to be done:
He’ll validate your life in the clear light of day
 and stamp you with approval at high noon.

Philippians 4:6(AMP)
6 Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition ([a]definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.

Matthew 7:7-8(AMP)
7 [a]Keep on asking and it will be given you; [b] keep on seeking and you will find; [c]keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking, [the door] will be opened.

Understanding your Inheritance and His Promise
Psalm 18:30(NIV)
30 As for God, his way is perfect:
The Lord’s word is flawless;
he shields all who take refuge in him.

Matthew 7:11(NIV)
11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!

Psalm 54:4(NIV)
4 Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.

Psalm 16:6(NIV)
6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.

Endurance, Hope, and Trust
Isaiah 26:4(NIV)
4 Trust in the Lord forever,
 for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.

Psalm 54:4(NIV)
4 Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.

Psalm 118:8(NIV)
8 It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans.

Psalm 37:5(NIV)
5 Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this:

Psalm 62:8(NIV)
8 Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge.

Gratitude:
Hebrews 13:5(NIV)
5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,“Never will I leave you;
 never will I forsake you.”

Hebrews 13:5(MSG)
5-6 Don’t be obsessed with getting more material things. Be relaxed with what you have. Since God assured us, “I’ll never let you down, never walk off and leave you,” we can boldly quote,
God is there, ready to help;
I’m fearless no matter what.
Who or what can get to me?

Colossians 3:23-24(NIV)
23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

If this is to be a Happy New Year, a year of usefulness, a year in which we shall live to make this earth better, it is because God will direct our pathway. How important then, to feel our dependence upon Him! ~Matthew Simpson
