2 Corinthians 4 : 16, Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. NKJV
Take a look around you. Everything you see is aging; and considering the alternative, it is good that we are getting older as well. I enjoy watching someone’s reaction when God blesses them with a new car or house. They are so excited and want to spend as much time as possible with their brand-new treasure. We, humans, certainly enjoy new things in life, but it doesn’t take long for the new to begin to fade.
We’re told many times in the Word of God that the things of this world are quickly fading away. When our possessions get some age on them, it’s easy to grow tired of them and lose interest. I bring up this point to illustrate how life can also have a way of losing its zest and its enjoyment. When a person loses their passion for life because nothing new or exciting is happening to them, they have a tendency to forget just how blessed they are. You may think, “Given the recent turn of events in my life, I certainly don’t feel blessed.” Well, hold on and allow me to share the Word that the Holy Spirit revealed to me for you today.
As I stated previously, everything in this world is growing older by the second. Even so, there is great news for the believer in Christ; our spirit man is being renewed daily. However, if that isn’t enough to encourage you, take a moment to remember when you used to be lost in your sins and had no hope; God forgave you, placed His Spirit into your spirit, and gave you a brand-new life that is eternal. Nevertheless, if that still isn’t sufficient, Paul teaches us in 2 Corinthians 5 that if we be in Christ, then old things have passed away (because our old man was crucified with Christ) and behold all things become new in Him.
Are you getting a hold of what the Holy Spirit is telling you today? Let go of the dead things from your past, and open your heart to God so that He can give you a glorious future. Yes, it can be done through Christ because God has promised us in Jeremiah 29 : 11 that He would give us a hope and a future. All things can become new today. How many times did God do a “new thing” in the Bible? How many times did God allow men and women, whom He had called, to get a brand-new start in life “after” they had failed Him? You, too, can choose today as being the “new beginning” or genesis in your life. If this a “right now” word for you, then faith will explode in your spirit, so that you can receive the manifestation in your life. Now start praising the Lord for a new day, a new beginning, and a renewed spirit that will never age or die. I’m getting happy just writing this to you. Somebody shout to the Lord!
Feeling Happy about Your New Beginning,
