A Fresh, New Beginning

Isaiah 43:18-19 … don't remember what happened in the beginning. Don't think about what happened a long time ago, because I am doing something new! Now you will grow like a new plant. Surely you know this is true. I will even make a road in the desert, and rivers will flow through that dry land.

Here we are. A new day … a new year. What are you going to do with the year that lies ahead? Will it just be the same old, same old, or is it time for something … new?

The 1st of January is always a special day, because it brings with it this sense of a new beginning, which I guess is why so many people feel the need to make New Year’s resolutions. But as we saw yesterday, the hurts of the past have a way of robbing you of your hope for the future.

It’s time to let go of the past. You can’t change it; you can’t erase the bad choices that you perhaps made or the bad stuff that the world threw at you. But you and I both know that that’s not easy.

So, how do you let go of the past? How do you lay a hold of this future that begins for you today? Well, it turns out, that the answer comes in two parts:

Isaiah 43:18-19 … don’t remember what happened in the beginning. Don’t think about what happened a long time ago, because I am doing something new! Now you will grow like a new plant. Surely you know this is true. I will even make a road in the desert, and rivers will flow through that dry land.

It’s time to forget the past. I know, I know, that can be difficult. But the thing that makes it easier, much easier, is to focus on the new things that God’s doing. Perhaps your life is still a bit of a desert. Okay, but God’s plan is to build a road through that desert. His plan is for rivers of water to flow through your dry land.

I am doing a new thing. Surely you know this is true.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
