Living in unprecedented times because of Covid-19 and the rise of the anti-racism protests, gives us a chance to stick a pin, move away from our past, and move into a new future. Are you ready for a new chapter in your life? In order to move forward into the blessing God has for you, you have to be willing to let go of the old. The things that are behind you are not nearly as important as what is out in front of you. Itâ€™s time to get ready for the â€œnewâ€!
Some unfair things may have happened during these strange times, things that you donâ€™t understand; donâ€™t look back, you havenâ€™t come this far to stop now. Instead of allowing those things to hold you back, why donâ€™t you let go and take a step of faith into the new?
Today, as we ease out of lockdown, itâ€™s time to get a new, bigger vision; itâ€™s time to get a new, fresher outlook; itâ€™s time to rise up with a new attitude! Instead of settling where you are, pick up and move forward. Have the attitude that says, â€œI may not understand it; it may not have been fair, but I am not getting stuck on this page of life. I know God has a new chapter for meâ€”a chapter filled with blessings, favour and victory!â€
â€œAnd no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined.â€(Luke 5:37, NIV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for Your faithfulness in my life. Father, today I will trust You with my past, present and future, looking beyond lockdown to a new experience with You. God, give me wisdom to discern the seasons of my life, and teach me to embrace the new things You have in store for me, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
