[PC-USA] 2002-01-06 - Passages Related to Resolutions

It's the beginning of a new year, and many of us are making "resolutions." Today we will look at some passages that relate to resolutions, goals or plans.

Proverbs 16:3 (NASB) Commit your works to the LORD and your plans will be established.

Jeremiah 29:11 (NASB) "For I know the plans that I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans for welfare and not for calamity, to give you a future and a hope."

Proverbs 15:21-22 (NASB) Folly is joy to him who lacks sense, but a man of understanding walks straight. Without consultation, plans are frustrated, but with many counselors they succeed.

Luke 14:28-29 (NASB) For which one of you, when he wants to build a tower, does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who observe it begin to ridicule him.

Philippians 3:13-15 (NASB) Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended. But this one thing I do: Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded, and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.

Ecclesiastes 9:10 (NASB) Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might; for there is no activity or planning or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol where you are going.
