Today we are stormy weather and gives us a great opportunity to set back with a cup of coffee or hot tea and ponder on God’s Word and reflect on our lives.
“For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.”
Isaiah 43:19 NLT
“For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.”
Romans 6:4 NLT
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT
This may be hard to believe, but we are creatures of habit and don’t like change. Yes, we do the same thing over and over again, even if it’s harmful to us. You may feel like you don’t have a choice, this is who I am. But you do have a choice! The way of God is the way of newness and change. You can’t know God and not be changed by knowing Him. God’s will for you is of change, of new beginnings, of breaking out of the old ways. But to have change in your life you must choose. You must choose not to live in your old habits and lifestyle, but choose to live and walk in the power of God who makes all things new. Folks, you will walk in the newness of life. So, today, step out of your old ways and habits. Do what you’ve never done before but should have. Walk in the newness of the Spirit.
