As we enter March 2018, if your year has been like mine, it has been a very busy time. Most people started off their year with New Year’s resolutions to make them a better person. The ancient Babylonians are said to have been the first people to make New Year’s resolutions, some 4,000 years ago. According to the Statistic Brain Research Institute in its January 2018 report, 42% of Americans make these resolutions. Americans determine to lose weight, start saving more money, start college or study harder, quit smoking, stop drinking or other good intentions. In the first week 72% are able to maintain our promise to yourself but by then end of January 58% of those good intentions have been broken. So if you were one of those who made a resolution and now have broken it, you are in the majority.
I am so glad that God didn’t make resolutions, but made promises! In 2 Corinthians 1:20 we read “For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us”
I praise God for his promises!
