New year, New you. Probably one of the most common phrases uttered in the first week of January. We are all thinking about what new things lie ahead this year, resolutions are being made and goals are being jot down. Change is good and goals are important but the truth is, we can't change on our own, if we really want true change, we must commit ourselves to Christ, He and only He can create change in us. Several scriptures speak to this point, here are a few: "Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed." Proverbs 16:3 and "This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!" 2 Corinthians 5:17. Both of these scriptures illustrate for us the need for Jesus to achieve the change and goals we desire. When we follow Christ, our goals and plans change to align with his plans for our lives, things we previously desired, no longer seem as enticing, plans we once had no longer appeal to us. Not only does trusting Christ help us to achieve our goals but our goals change after trusting Christ.
