“It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness.”(v. 22-23, KJV)
I got into His Holy Word and suddenly saw that our Creator God does not repeat Himself. He always renews; everything He ever created had likenesses but never were “the same”!
Creation power set the gift of growth into everything that comes from God. That truth applies on all three levels for His children who are born-again and have received a “new” spirit, a “new” heart, and live under a “new” time arrangement. We do have eternity in our heart!
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11, NKJV)
The understanding most of us have about that divine “newness” is very limited and Satan is very eager to keep “new“ insights within the “old” concepts and as repetitious traditionalism and legalism, teaches “sameness”, never “newness”!
Newness belongs to the future and creates fears of the unknown! The older a person gets, the more we try to hold on to routine and repetition and pray about the good “old” times to return.
God has no such things to give! He is not giving us warmed up leftover coffee from yesterday for our new morning! He has something “new” every new day if we look for it – better yet, if we ask for it! And, He has it ready for us, and on all three levels – if we dare to receive and anticipate what God has for us – and it is all good! Our Heavenly Father has only good gifts to give, but so many of His most wonderful packages are never opened by us!
As I pack and get ready for a “new” mission trip, things are different this time! Now, every morning I praise God for a “new” morning and thank Him for all I have received so far. Next, I ask for a “new” willingness provided by His Holy Spirit to look for His “new” gifts of that day – and I see them, even on the physical level and in my emotions!
“Healing” is another word for “renewal” and I see small restorations in body and soul and spirit, although Satan tries to ‘steal” what Jesus gives me moment by moment!
Fears try to bring back “old” memories of hardship and sadness and I do not accept them. God has “new” plans, “new” joy, “new” happenings, “new” people, “new” experiences, and every day is something brand new. I never saw it before!
My beloved Friend, will you give “new” plans of a loving God a chance? Will you dare to believe that His Love is every day “new” and does not depend on your limitations and mistakes for daily growth? Remember, the past is under Christ’s Blood and all forgiven. He has a “new” beginning and wonderful new things for us, and His best is yet ahead!
Join me in my “new” praise and gratitude. Let’s sing together a “new” song!
Joy and Peace to you,
Greetings and blessings of “newness”, fellow Travelers along life’s sometimes weary path!
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17, NKJV)
You may look at the above verse as one that was quoted to you when you first became a follower of Christ. Your “old” life, your “old” way of doing things, was over. Jesus has made you into a “new” being. You rejoiced that your name was now written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. You were no longer a slave to the “old” way of life. Indeed, you have now become a “slave to righteousness”, as Paul says in Romans 6:18.
However, I think we are all prone to falling back into the “old” way of thinking talking, and doing. We may not be committing what we think of as “egregious” sins, especially once we start comparing ourselves with, well, just about anyone else! We forget that any and every sin put Jesus to death on that cross. Sometimes, the “old” way is just an ungrateful heart! Sometimes, we are stuck in a rut and we do not even realize that we are forgetting to look up and see the new things that God has for us. Or, perhaps, that His mercies are new every morning, and great is His faithfulness!”
Paul tells us in Ephesians 4 to “be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.” (v. 23, 24)
It is in the mind that renewal must begin. Draw near to God by choosing to talk with Him. Resist the enemy of our souls by refusing to listen to his lies. Speak God’s Truth over your daily circumstances, whether it is your or your loved one’s health, your child’s behavior, or ...!
I love how Grandma Hansi has phrased it: “Dare to believe…!” Let your “daring” begin with a prayer to God. Ask Him to help you to see the new things that He has planned for you, and ask Him to give you the courage to trust Him! You and I are “crucified with Christ; and it is no longer (we) who live, but Christ lives in (us)...” (Galatians 2:20)
