Newness in the New Year

3 01 2012

Do not remember the things that have happened before. Do not think about the things of the past.  See, I will do a new thing. It will begin happening now. Will you not know about it? I will even make a road in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.  Isaiah 43:18-19

I am so thankful for the opportunity to turn the page as we enter the New Year. This morning, I was reminded of the powerful God that we serve. Our Heavenly Father is able to take our lives and create something new. The enemy would like for us to dwell on the past and remind of us of shortcomings and where we were may have missed the mark but we can give thanks to God that through Jesus Christ we are new creation. Through Him we can have renewed minds, bodies and souls.

This scripture in Isaiah is a directive to think about the new things that God will do in our lives. Even the God, that has already provided so much for us, is doing even a new thing in our lives. We can look with anticipation in the future about how God will provide direction, provision and will sustain us to achieve His purpose for our lives. Our prayer today is that we will approach this year with thanksgiving and a renewed spirit in great anticipation of what God is yet doing in our lives.
