If you send in a job application to a company that you have been wanting to be a part of, the normal thing that follows is, if you don't get a call for an interview within a week or two, you call the company. When they call you for the interview, you come dressed up for the occasion. You drop all your bad habits at home and present yourself in the best way possible. Most importantly, you always leave your contact information and collect theirs.
Similar to this event at the beginning of every year you write your New Year resolution you drop it in a basket at the church but the moment you drop it, you go back to your bed and your normal way of living as you expect God to somehow perform magic and make your wishes come true. You don't dress for the occasion to prove to God that you really want what you requested, you don't call in through prayers to ask and listen about your request if you are eligible. You don't show desperation through hard work and visible activities that are in the line of what you have requested. By the middle of the year, when none of your wishes come true you say, “I give up and leave it all for God to do.” Bruh!!! God is not a magician, He is a miracle worker plus He is too busy working on the things that are out of your power to do. He is busy working on the invisible, your own part is what makes your wishes visible. He will not give you hands, a stove, a pot, matches, fuel, rice, water, salt and still come down to cook for you.
If in your new year resolution, you ask for God to give you a new job, stand up, write a good resume/CV, search for companies that are employing, submit your application and God will play his part in making the employers deem you as best among the other applicants. Don't lie down on your bed expecting God to send companies to be calling you. Except you are Bill gates, you will grow like Methuselah on that bed. If you are a student and you want better grades, work very hard and very smart, spend more time with your books. The part that God will play, is to make the Holy Spirit keep you away from distraction and procrastination. Stop imagining that God himself will change your score on that sheet from zero to 100%.
Get tired of writing New Year resolutions that never come to pass!!! Get tired of blaming God for your own irresponsibility and leaving the things that you can do for God to fix.
