As 2019 comes to a close, many of us will take the time to reflect on the past and prepare for the future. The New Year can bear an array of emotional feelings – excitement, joy, accomplishment, but also regret, remorse, or mournful. Whether you accomplished all your 2019 New Year’s Resolutions or none of them, how do we prepare our hearts, our homes, and our ministries for 2020? May I suggest, that we begin with a 2020 vision.
It doesn’t matter what your goals are for 2020. They may be personal, spiritual, physical – they may be within your home, your church, or another ministry; whatever the case, if you want to accomplish them – and I mean REALLY accomplish them, you need a ‘game plan.’ There are many websites and articles about how to accomplish specific goals, but this post isn’t about that.
How we do have a TRUE 2020 vision and accomplish almost any goal you set out to achieve? Might I suggest a 2020 vision, a path, dedicated entirely to the Lord? You will wake up tomorrow with (God willing) 365 days ahead of you in this New Year. That’s 365 chances to wake up and say, “Good Morning, Lord.” That’s 365 chances to make a difference – to finally make the change.
It doesn’t matter what your goals are for 2020. Invite the Lord into ALL of them. And make Him a priority. Do you want Joy in the 2020 season? The Bible says,
Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night.Psalm 1:1-2
Delight in the law of the Lord by meditating on it day and night. Let Him in on your goals, your secrets, and your desires. He will give you the strength to accomplish anything!
You can be sure of this:
The Lord set apart the godly for himself.
The Lord will answer when I call to himPsalm 4:3
