People spout out funny things for their New Year’s resolutions with the best intentions. Sadly, many times they fade to forgotten indifference by the end of January. We believe in New Year’s REVELATIONS at The Bridge. Revelation is a fresh understanding of God’s truth in your life.
REVELATION: disclosure of truth or instruction concerning things once unknown; made visible or manifest (New Testament Greek Lexicon)
Resolution is our will-power or RESOLVE to change ourselves; Revelation is God’s PERSPECTIVE and POWER to change us!
The beginning of the year is a great time to pray and discern God’s leading and purposes for the next year. That’s why every year we ask people to join us in some kind of fast, whether it’s food (many of us do the Daniel Fast), coffee (oh Lord, help me!) TV, Facebook, or whatever the Lord directs you in. Read and pray Ephesians 1:17-19 every day in January, believing that God is “enlightening” the eyes of your heart and aligning it with His.
Goals are great, we all need to them to keep us focused and from following the shiny objects appearing along the way. The great thing about REVELATION is realizing when my goals line up with God’s plan, then HIS POWER backs it up–not my resolve and fading will power!

Need a great Bible reading plan for the New Year? I love this one by NavPress. It mixes it up with a reading section from the Old Testament, the Gospels, the Epistles and then Psalm and Proverbs. The other great thing is each month has 25 readings, so if you miss a day it’s easy to catch up. Check it out… The Discipleship Journal Bible Reading Plan
