Each morning at sunrise and we wake, we see the beauty of a new day. A new morning. New opportunities. Compassion. As we begin the new day the Lord’s great love gives us hope! Acknowledge that you are on this journey and it’s not a one-time-fix -all. Today is a new day! It’s an opportunity for each of us to be grateful!
While Jesus was here on earth, even He was doing a new thing! The Lord taught believers a new way of living, a new commandment, a new covenant: to love as we have been loved.
Throughout the Old Testament, We can see that even God was doing a new thing. A new thing is a good thing. The Lord is making a WAY for us in the wilderness. It is He who gives us streams of living water in the times we are in the wastelands.
2 Corinthians 5:17
God’s Word tells us that we are being made new. It’s our choice to believe it and walk in that truth. Alternatively, we can deny the power of God and His power to change even the deadest of hearts into hearts softened with love. The Lord is making all things new, He is bringing the dead back to life!
Throughout the Psalms, we read words that are full of praise and singing NEW songs to God! There are times when you will find yourself in a daunting new place. In these times we need to sing a new song of praise to our God! Praise is our weapon against the enemy and fear.
As children of God, we are given a new spirit. He turns our hearts from stone to flesh. Now New beginnings. Now New mercies and newness of life.
The Lord Jesus Christ shared a very precious time with his disciples and brought in the new covenant. Through his very body and his blood he gives us new life. This newness of life and fresh beginnings isn’t anything we can bring together on our own. Christ Jesus is our only hope of new life! And He gave His very life for us to have that new life in Him.
If we are to put on the new self then we must put off the old ways and allow God to make us over in our new self. To be made new in true righteousness and holiness.
You are a new creation in Christ. That is what counts.
Many people relive that past regularly and it can overtake their life. If we are to become like Christ, then we need to let go of the past and embrace the new season. Just like God does.
