How did it go, and how will it go.. in 2019? Thinkin' about King Saul and how he wasted so much time -- he failed and early on failed to inquire of the Lord. 1 Chronicles 10:14

So, how was your Christmas? Did you get all you needed or wanted? 

Grateful and content! I feel amped and upbeat. Are you going to make any New Year's resolutions? Question for you. Are you going to follow Jesus this year or want Jesus to follow you? Sounds kind of crazy, but many people do that.. even asking Him to do that with so many words. We do what we want to do and sometimes we ask God to bless it. Been there, done that.
Are you going to inquire of Him for direction?
God chose to send Jesus to earth to save us from the penalty of our sins. But why did He do it the way He did?
Jesus submitted to the Father's plan; He chose to go with the Message that all people really need -- the Gospel. Need even now, and through this new year. The Spirit led Him all the way to the Cross.
"My soul magnifies the LORD, and my spirit rejoices in God my SAVIOR, for He has looked on the HUMBLE estate of his SERVANT. For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed; for he who is mighty has done GREAT things for me..” ~ Mary, Luke 1:46-49 #emph.mine
Mary said, “Behold, I am the SERVANT of the Lord; let it be to me according to your Word." Luke 1:38a
Not a rebel or selfish. Mary submitted to and really loved the Word -- she was godly and blessed! Stoked! Let's all of the Word and live enthusiastically! She saw herself as a saved servant of God instead of being prideful about being chosen to carry Jesus to term. She pointed people to Jesus. She never wants prayer directed to her -- don't do it. Glorify God like she did. 
All need to be forgiven, saved, and humbly obedient -- daily led by the Lord. You can make it right and inquire right now. 

How should we view Him, and ourselves in 2019 if God gives us really important directives and tasks? You know he has a good plan for you!
