With the new year comes fresh opportunities to pursue your God-given dreams and destiny. It’s essential to grow in your walk with the Lord and live a life that honors Him. Here’s a list of 10 commitments to consider making this year that will put you on a winning path!

Commit to:

Stay faithful to Jesus Christ. Make Him your top priority (Matt. 6:33).

Read your Bible and pray daily. Keep a prayer journal to remember how good God has been to you (Rom. 10:17; Phil. 4:6–7).

Share the Gospel daily with at least one person (Mark 16:15).

Resolve to change one habit, such as drinking more water, getting more sleep, exercising 30 minutes a day, or eating at least one balanced meal a day (1 Cor. 6:19–20).

Don’t let anything—a career, house, significant other, social media, or hobby—become an object of worship (Exod. 20:3–4).

Set aside one day a week to rest. Trust God to provide your needs and enjoy the time He’s given you (Exod. 20:8–11; Phil. 4:19).

Be thankful and content with what you have. Don’t worry about what others are accumulating (Phil. 4:11–12; Heb. 13:5).

Watch your language and don’t tear people down. Speak about others in love and don’t gossip (Eph. 4:29).

Manage your finances more wisely and be a good steward of what God has given you (Prov. 25:28 (NIV); Rom. 13:8).

Walk by faith. Believe that God’s Word is true, that He will fulfill His Word, and that He will take care of you every day (2 Cor. 5:7).

You Can Win

You cannot be defeated if you understand that the great unseen One is not only for you but also with you and in you. That happens when you know that God is with you at all times. Then you will get why Jesus said, “All things are possible to him that believeth” (Mark 9:23).

If you believe that God is for you, with you, and in you, you won’t talk negatively. You won’t talk about a lack of ability because you can tap into His ability. You won’t talk about a lack of power because He is the powerhouse. You won’t talk about what you can’t do because He can do anything.

Whenever you face impossible situations, confess in faith: “God is in me. God’s ability is mine. God’s strength is mine. God’s health is mine. God’s success is mine. I’m a winner. I’m a conqueror. I’m a success!”

Your confession of the Greater One living in you enables you to overcome anything that comes against you.
