It's Time For New Things!

Good morning! Is. 43:18,19 Do not earnestly remember the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Quit looking back! Stop pining over the way things used to be, either good or bad. God wants to do a "new thing" in your life. He wants to take you up higher in Him. Our past successes and failures can act as a ball and chain that can hinder us from going to the next level in Christ. Many times we don't feel like we measure up because of past mistakes, repeated sin, and the lack of commitment to the things of God. Stop it! The blood of Jesus is a continual cleansing agent over our lives, if we will but apply it to every area, past, present, and future. He knew we would need something that was more powerful than the guilt of our sin, so He gave us His pure, redeeming blood to wash it all away. 1 Jn. 1:9 Let go of the past and press into the "new things" God has for you. Everyday is a new day in Him. He has awesome things in store for those who love Him, who trust Him, those who have given up all to follow hard after Him. He will make a way even in the wilderness season of our lives. He will flood our hearts with rivers of His goodness, in those dry desert places, if we will put our total trust and reliance in Him.
