Do you ever lose your resolve? I do. I looked in the back bedroom closet and it wasn’t there. Nor was it under my bed or even stowed in the trunk of the car.
Do you know what I mean? I start out with great resolution to do the vacuuming and whish—before I know it; I am reading the latest bestseller or checking my email. Where on earth does resolve go? Even the internet doesn’t know. (I looked!) Anyway, here is a picture of what true resolve looks like:
But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the royal food and wine, and he asked the chief official for permission not to defile himself this way.(Daniel 1:8, NIV)
I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. (1 Corinthians 2:2, NIV)
Prayer – Lord, help us to resolve and mean it just like Daniel and Paul did.
