He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!”
The word “new” can cause various reactions. Some people get excited about new things. If you have ever had to work with an outdated and slow computer, the thought of getting a new one would surely bring a jolt of excitement. If you are driving a 20-year-old vehicle, there might be more than a little desire to upgrade to a new model.
At the same time, the thought of having to deal with something new can bring anxiety and fear into our lives. Getting a new computer means learning newer versions of software. A person might not be as comfortable with the newer system. Driving a newer vehicle could mean paying more money for insurance. The desire and enthusiasm for “new” could easily be diminished in our thoughts.
I pray that we will not let our reluctance and fear keep us from pursuing what God wants to do in our lives. God wants to do something new in all of us. There is a breakthrough in our faith. There is a transformation of our minds. There is a journey of growth in our relationship with Him.
At its core, faith is the belief in things unseen (yet to be realized). It requires a substantial amount of trust on our part. Let’s begin this new year of 2022 on the right foot. Join me in asking the question, “God, what do YOU want to accomplish in and through my life this year?” As our Heavenly Father answers, may you be courageous and faithful enough to step into the “new” that God has for you.
I am constantly praying for God’s renewal and restoration in all our lives.
I love you all,
