I am doing something a little different with my Scripture Sunday posts this month. I am posting free printable Scripture prints featuring verses that correspond to my New Years resolutions.
“Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols. And I will give you a new heart with new and right desires, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony heart of sin and give you a new, obedient heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so you will obey my laws and do whatever I command.”
I would dare say most of us don’t bow down and worship an idol like in the Old Testament days, but if we’re honest, we do sometimes put things before God, right?
I must admit there are plenty of times when I haven’t read my Bible everyday, but I’ve been on Facebook everyday. Or maybe I’ve read design blogs, watched TV, but I didn’t read my Bible.
And yet another point from this scripture: “And I will give you a new heart with new and right desires, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony heart of sin and give you a new, obedient heart.”
Does anyone else ever feel anger and bitterness when you’re going through hard times? I have been known to throw myself a pity party and wallow instead of being hopeful and looking to God. That’s not a very obedient heart, is it?
In addition to my other three New Years resolutions, I am sharing this one as well: Trust God to give me a new, obedient heart.
As always, to download my free printable above, please right click and save to your device.
