This is a great resolution to exercise under the power and enabling of the Holy Spirit. In your devoted time with God, go through these items and lay open your soul to God. Casting your cares, admitting the fears, hopes and dreams of your heart to God. Talk to God differently this year. Not just about what you need supplied for your life. But talk to him about your soul and the care you need there from him and him alone.
Resolved, very much to exercise myself in this all my life long, viz. with the greatest openness I am capable of, to declare my ways to God, and lay open my soul to him: all my sins, temptations, difficulties, sorrows, fears, hopes, desires, and every thing, and every circumstance;
You fight sin,by exposing sin!
