A Holy New Year’s Resolution!

A Holy New Year’s Resolution!

(Matthew Henry)

“My times are in Your hand!” Psalm 31:15

Firmly believing that my times are in God’s hand, I here submit myself and all my affairs for the ensuing year, to the wise and gracious disposal of God’s divine providence. Whether God appoints for me . . . .

health β€” or sickness,
peace β€” or trouble,
comforts β€” or crosses,
life β€” or death

β€” may His holy will be done!

All my time, strength, and service, I devote to the honor of the Lord Jesus β€” and even my common actions. It is my earnest expectation, hope, and desire, my constant aim and endeavor β€” that Jesus Christ may be magnified in me.

In everything I have to do β€” my entire dependence is upon Jesus Christ for strength. And whatever I do in word or deed, I desire to do all in His name, to make Him my Alpha and Omega. I have all from Him β€” and I would use all for Him.

If this should prove a year of affliction, a sorrowful year to me β€” I will fetch all my supports and comforts from the Lord Jesus and stay myself upon Him, His everlasting consolations, and the good hope I have in Him through grace.

And if it should be my dying year β€” then my times are in the hand of the Lord Jesus. And with a humble reliance upon His mediation, I would venture into the eternal world looking for the blessed hope. Dying as well as living β€” Jesus Christ will, I trust, be gain and advantage to me.

Oh, that the grace of God may be sufficient for me, to keep me always in a humble sense of my own unworthiness, weakness, folly, and infirmity β€” together with a humble dependence upon the Lord Jesus Christ for daily grace and strength.
