I usually post once a week, but thought I’d add this one since it deals with the New Year:
As many people do at the New Year, I was thinking about resolutions. I realized that many of the Psalms contain “I will (or shall)” or “I will (or shall) not”. That sounded like resolutions to me, so here is a list of 10 New Year’s resolutions from The Psalms.
Psalms 4:8 – I will lie down, both in peace and in sleep. For You alone, Jehovah, make me dwell in safety.
Psalms 5:3 – My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Jehovah; in the morning I will direct my prayer to You, and I will look up.
Psalms 18:2 – Jehovah is my strength, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my rock; I will trust in Him; He is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower.
Psalms 26:1 – Judge me, O Jehovah; for I have walked in my truthfulness. I have trusted also in Jehovah; I shall not slide.
Psalms 42:5 – Why are you cast down, O my soul, and moan within me? Hope in God; for I shall praise Him for the salvation of His face.
Psalms 44:6 – For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.
Psalms 56:4 – In God I will praise His Word; in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do to me.
Psalms 62:6 – He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my strong tower; I shall not be shaken.
Psalms 119:33 – Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.
Psalms 119:34 – Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your Law; yea, I shall observe it with all my heart.
