God doesn’t waste our pain and neither should we. He is working His purposes in and through your suffering. Take time to meditate on the wisdom and ways of God as He works out His perfect will through your suffering.
Jonathan Edwards not only starts and finishes his resolutions differently from self-help gurus, he also has something unique to say in between. His goal in making and keeping resolutions isn’t self-fulfillment but the glory of God.
Jonathan Edwards drew up seventy resolutions, committing himself to a God-centered life lived in harmony with others. They are not laws to be kept but resolutions to point us toward godliness in daily living by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
