A New Year is a great time to hit the restart button, and many of us do, but by the time April rolls around, the majority of us will have gone back to old habits. Why? Because we typically strive for improvement in our own strength, which fails us every time. This is especially true of our spiritual lives. As we are reminded in Zechariah 4:6, “Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit,” says the LORD Almighty. Only God’s Spirit is able to replace the darkness in our lives with his light.
