Look closely at yourselves. Test yourselves to see if you are living in the faith.” 2 Corinthians 13:5
Nothing becomes transforming until it becomes specific. You can ask God anytime for a fresh start in your life. But you don’t just say, “God, I want you to change me.” He wants to know what you have in mind!
You cannot solve any problem until you first identify it as a problem and that means you have to admit that there are problems in your life. The more specific you are about what you want God to change in your life, the sooner it’s going to happen.
The Bible says it like this: “Look closely at yourselves. Test yourselves to see if you are living in the faith” (2 Corinthians 13:5).
Where do you need a reset? What would you like God to change in your life to give you a fresh start?
How about in your connection to God? If there has ever been a time in your life when you felt closer to God than you do right now, then you need a reset.
How about in your body? Do you need help with your metabolism or your fitness or your chronic illness? You can ask God for that!
Do you need a reset in your priorities? Have you started spending all your time doing things you know are not really important? You need a reset in your schedule.
What about a relationship? Do you need to reset a relationship that has grown stagnant or is deteriorating? You can ask God to help with that.
How about in your career? If you’re out of work right now or if your job is keeping you from pursuing Christ, then you need a reset.
Do you need a reset in your thought life? If you’re having thoughts that you know are wrong, that you can’t control, or that scare you, then you need God to help you reset your thoughts and give you new ones.
Maybe you need a reset in your habits, your parenting, your schedule, your finances, or even your dream.
Whatever needs a reset in your life, just ask God for it and be specific!
