Summary: RESOLUTIONS ARE SELF IMPOSED –SELF WILLED AND SELF PROPELLED IDEAS THAT DO NOT INCLUDE THE POWER OF GOD BUT WHAT YOU REALLY NEED IS NOT ANOTHER NEW YEAR RESOLUTION BUT A NEW YEAR REVELATION

  Study Tools

Psalm 1:1-3 (KJV)

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

VERY BRIEFLY I WANT TO REASON WITH YOU ON THE THOUGHT

(NEW YEARS RESOLUTION OR NEW YEARS REVELATION)

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

ONCE AGAIN GOD HAS ALLOWED US TO SEE A NEW YEAR

AND IT`S NOT BECAUSE WE BEEN SO GOOD

BUT IT`S BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN SO GOOD

(ANYBODY KNOW HE`S BEEN GOOD)

BECAUSE WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT HOW THE LORD HAS

*HEARD YOUR PETITIONS

*ENTERTAINED YOUR SUPPLICATIONS

AND ANSWERED YOUR PRAYERS

*HEAL YOUR BODY

*DIRECTED YOU

*PREPARED YOU

*REDEEM YOU

*RESTORED YOU

*REVIVED YOU

*AND BLESS YOU IN 2016

(YOU OUGHT TO REACH OVER AND GIVE YOUR NEIGHBOR A HIGH 5)

(AND TELL THEM HE`S BEEN GOOD TO ME)

NOW-----NOW NEW YEARS IS A TIME

WHERE PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD OR MAKING NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS

AND IF THE TRUTH BE TOLD

WE HEAR ABOUT RESOLUTIONS EVERY NEW YEAR RANGING FROM

SPENDING MORE TIME WITH FAMILY

TO THE HALTING OF BAD HABITS

HABITS THAT WE SHOULD HAVE STOP YEARS AGO

AND THE END RESULTS OF MANY OF OUR RESOLUTIONS IS FAILURE ,TIME AND TIME AGAIN

BUT THE REASON WHY OUR RESOLUTION OFTEN FAIL

IS BECAUSE RESOLUTIONS ARE SELF IMPOSED –SELF WILLED AND SELF PROPELLED IDEAS

THAT DO NOT INCLUDE THE POWER OF GOD

BUT WHAT YOU REALLY NEED IS NOT ANOTHER NEW YEAR RESOLUTION

BUT A NEW YEAR REVELATION

BECAUSE IF THE TRUTH BE TOLD

THE BEST REVELATIONS COMES FROM GOD THROUGH THE SCRIPTURES THAT ARE DIVINELY INSPIRED BY HIM FOR US

YOU SEE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

A REVELATION CONTAINS GODS PLAN AND PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE

EVEN IN THE TEXT BEFORE US

THE PSALMIST PROVIDES US WITH A SPIRIT FILLED REVELATION

THAT WILL GUIDE US INTO 2017

NOTICE HOW HE STARTS THE REVELATION

BY SAYING BLESSED

AND THE IDEA OF BLESSED IN THE GENERAL SENSE CONNOTES THAT IT`S SOMETHING THAT GOD DOES FOR US

BUT IN THIS TEXT BEFORE US

THE PSALMIST REVALS TO US THAT IT`S SOMETHING WE MUST DO FOR OURSELVES

BY WATCHING THE COMPANY THAT WE KEEP IN 2017

AND WHAT THE PSALMIST IS TELLING US IS

IF YOU WANT TO BE BLESS IN 2017

YOU HAVE TO TREMINATE SOME PEOPLE IN YOUR CIRCLE AND DELETE SOME CONTACTS IN YOUR CELL PHONE

BECAUSE IN THE TEXT HE MENTIONS 3 GROUPS OF PEOPLE

THAT IS 1-THE UNGODLY 2-THE SINNER AND THE SCORNFUL

YOU SEE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

THE UNGODLY ARE THOSE WHO SINS KNOWINGLY AND FEEL NO COVICTION

THE SINNER ARE THOSE WHO SINS OPENLY

AND THE SCORNFUL ARE THOSE WHO SIN AND ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO JOIN THEM

AND WHAT THE PSALMIST IS TELLING US

IS IN 2017 YOU HAVE TO BLESS YOURSELF BY TERMINATING SOME PEOPLE WHO MEANS YOU NO GOOD AND DELETE SOME NUMBERS IN YOUR CELL PHONE

BECAUSE IF YOU HANG AROUND WOLVES

GUESS WHAT ?

YOU WILL START HOWLING LIKE A WOLF

I KNOW IT SOUND HARSH BUT IT`S HOLY

THAT`S WHY PAUL TELLS US IN HIS 2ND LETTER TO THE CHURCH AT CORINTH
