God is always faithful, and if we look at the past, we’ll find that he has been with us, guiding us, fighting for us, when we were broken His hands were always there to hold us back in Faith and strength.he has been working in our lives in so many ways – even when we don’t realize it!
Every year we celebrate New Year, why we call this a “New”? Because This word creates the excitement of Looking and Hoping the New Things which we have not seen. It’s Like taking off your old clothes, old sadness, old sufferings clothes of the past year and Wear New clothes of new hopes.
The word New plays a very important role in our lives.
Wheather we talk about New clothes, new house, new car, new job etc etc.. Whenever we talked about New it gives excitement, we started feeling good.
Isn’t it true?.
If we look into the Scriptures, in Genesis 1:3-5 “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first days.”
Imagine when God was happy to saw that light, he divided darkness from that light…the same way we see the past and New, as When God was a Happy same way we enjoy that New…as we all are his creation.
We need to see what the word of God says in 1 Chronicles 16:12 “ Remember his marvelous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;”.If We Look into the past God was there in all our ups and downs, he was our guiding light in all our work of hands and in our ways when we suffered his words were our hope and strength.
God gave us courage and strength and Hope to stand still in all the circumstances…Every day every moment he has done miracles in our lives, as there is a New beginning, there will be great and amazing Blessings for us, for me and everybody.his plans to Prosper us.Apostle Paul says in 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new.”,isn’t it great and marvelous things which God has done for us that through His son’s blood we all should be cleaned and present in a New form in front him, acceptable.
Our lives are no longer worldly; they are now spiritual. Our “death” is that of the old sin nature which was nailed to the cross with Christ.It was buried with Him, and just as He was raised up by the Father, so are we raised up to “walk in newness of life.and this a marvelous work.
God says in Isaiah 43:18-19 “Remember ye, not the former things, neither consider the things of old.Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.”
It’s God’s promise for us that as he says “I will do a New Thing shall spring forth and I will make the way in the wilderness…the Wilderness of our lives, the way we are living.he said clearly do not consider the former things as they are past now.
So in our lives, we all should look forward keep the word of God with us and he will show us mighty things and things Wich are unimaginable, that no eyes have seen no ear has heard those are the things which he kept for the people who love him, obey him.
We did not inherit the new nature, nor did we decide to recreate ourselves anew, nor did God simply clean up our old nature; He created something entirely fresh and unique. The new creation is completely new, brought about by nothing, just as the whole universe was created by God from nothing.
We need to be thankful to God as the scriptures say in 1 Chronicles 16:8 “ Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.”
The Former things, the Past or the old things have passed away. The Pastor former refers to everything that is part of our old nature, pride, love of sin, reliance on works, and our former opinions, habits, and passions. Most significantly, what we loved and passionate about has passed away, the love of self and with it self-righteousness, self-promotion, and self-justification. The new creature looks outwardly toward Christ instead of inwardly.Along with the old passing away, The new light, New Day, New Creation has come in us and as New Enter, the Old and former dead things are started replacing with new things, which is full of life and the glory of God. Our purposes, feelings, desires, hopes and understandings, opinions are fresh, New and different. Now We see the world differently in a New Perspective.
As in Romans 13:11-12 “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us, therefore, cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.”
There are enough Blessings given by God to his people if we start reading it our soul will be thrilled.
Jabez Prayed to God in 1 Chronicles 4:10 “And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.”
Yes we need to be thankful to God,For this New Creation, we should make known his marvelous works among the people which he has done for us we should pray him with wholeheartedly,and he will listen to our prayers the way he listened to Jabez prayer and prospered him the same way he prosper us and increase our borders..
In Jeremiah 29:11-12 “For I know the thoughts that I think of you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.”
Yes, that’s his promises and expectations from us that we should come to him humbly and put forth our prayers, requests as he knows our thoughts, our needs our expectations.
What a Great blessing from him if we look onto Psalms 65:10-11 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.Thou crownest the year with thy goodness, and thy paths drop fatness.May our Lord God Almighty “ Yahweh” bless you, prosper you and be his light in your lives… May The Light and Wine of Life of His Son “Yahshua” flows in us to make us fruit bearing branches as “Yahshua” Jesus is Fig tree and We are his Branches ,for this I must quote one Beautiful verse of Jermiah which says Jeremiah 17:8 “For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
May God Bless each and everyone in this New Beginnings of New Season, Let our New Creation which is through “Yahshua” Jesus bear bountiful fruits in their lives.
