A New Thing!

 Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert”. Isaiah 43:19

As the new year begins 2024 let's embrace together all the good promises that God has for us each day. We need to continually remind ourselves that we are not forgiving the way blindly, that God already has offered our steps and we follow after him. He makes the way where there is no way. 

We can reflect on the fact that Jesus was the new thing. That no longer would God's people have the same path to atonement of sacrifice, but that God would do all that was necessary for total atonement and sacrifice. What new things is he doing this year on your behalf?

Many people all around the world look forward to a new year. This is because the previous year was not their best. The new year means new things. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is an annual observance celebrated by Jesish people across the world. Translated from Hebrew it means “head of the year”. Rosh Hashanah marks the beginning of 10 days of repentance of Judaism. This period culminates with Yom Kippur, a holiday which sees Jewish people fast and pray to atone for their sins. In the Hebrew calendar we are in year 5,784 and in the Roman calendar we are in 3,2024. It's very important to know where in the calendar we are. 

As followers of Jesus Christ we can trust God's words. This should help us get through 2024. We should trust his promises and know that God always keeps his promises because “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: he said, and should he not do it? We desire for every little thing to be right, but when selfish desires overlap that's impossible. We cannot do this ourselves. We have to rely on him, the one who is perfect and knows our hearts. He is perfect, holy and righteous. Let's take time this year to make a difference in someone's life. Today I would like for you to think about forgiveness. Let’s do this together. I would like to share soon my big testimony with all readers. Take time to think about someone who hurt you, betrayed you perhaps, broke your heart. Think about those we hurt in the past. Let's read the bible everyday and ask for the eyes that see all. 

This year, God is doing something new in you. Just Believe.

Lets pray,

Father God, thank you for the new year. Thank you for a new year full of opportunities and purpose. I will embrace your promises. I will follow you, father God. Help me not fall into temptation. Help me to forgive those who really left scars in my heart. Lord, this year help me get closer to you by praying and fasting. Help me read the word of God for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. Lord, help me forgive. I refuse to start this year in bitterness. I refuse to stay the same. Give me the eyes that can see the good in people. Help me have the hunger for you everyday to seek in you in prayer and thanksgiving. I love you Jesus. I praise your holy name, In the name of Jesus. Amen.
