A New Beginning

This week as we've entered the new year, the idea of new beginnings has a been on my heart. So many made New Year Resolutions and perhaps many of them have already been broken. Others, at only 3 days in, are starting to feel the pressure of the commitments they have made and are considering quitting.

The Bible tells us in Revelation 21:5, And he who was seated on the throne said, "Behold I am making all things new." Also he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true." I have been encouraged through this word and the one written by the Old Testament Prophet, Isaiah, in chapter 43 and verse 19, Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. 

This new year brings more than a resolution. It brings the promise of all things new, now. Regardless of even what the last few days have held for your life in 2018; be encouraged today, take heart, He (Christ) wants to do something new in you.

What He makes new is perfect. Think about creation, recorded in Genesis 1. Everything was completely perfect. It was consummate, immaculate, and appropriate because He had made it.Then the fall of woman and man, who believed a lie about God, caused it to be spoiled, and tarnished. Just in the last day or two, I have read from a devotional, along with my daily Bible reading, that pointed out that before Adam or Eve sinned, they first believed a lie about God from the serpent (Satan.)

Regardless of what those around you are saying, what the current circumstance looks like or even how you feel about yourself...DON'T BELIEVE THE LIE OF SATAN! He (Christ Jesus) wants to do something NEW FOR YOU TODAY! It's the promise of His Word!

Seek Him in this new year, and watch as He unfolds the plans He has for you.
It may just be A New Beginning! 

Be blessed,
