Life can be challenging.
Sometimes in life GOD will take away everything dear to us. Most times we don’t understand. All the time we want it all back. We want our old comfortable existence back. But what GOD wants, is to prepare us for the “New”.
In order to do that a refining process must take place. This process involves removing people, places, things, habits and thoughts that keep us from a deeper relationship with GOD. The removal of every interest or inclination that has kept us in a place we unknowingly, or even knowingly had outgrown.
Lets stop being resistant to our change. We hinder ourselves by constantly turning around, looking back and reaching back for what GOD purposefully put behind us to prepare us for what lies ahead of us.
I’m often reminded of a powerful sermon given by my pastor Jeffrey Reaves a few years ago on the first Sunday of that year. In the message he was persistently thought invoking with this special announcement: “GOD wants you…to make a NEW start!” This message spoke volumes then, and it still does. So on that note I would like to make an announcement:
“GOD wants you….to make a New Start!”
And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.” (Revelation 21:5 NLT)
I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope. (Jeremiah 29:11 GWT)
Ich Liebe Dich Alle!
