I keep hearing God say ‘I am doing a new thing’. I had to sit with that for a minute – maybe I have even been sitting with it for ninety days. A new thing you say?!!
When we think of new we don’t think of anything old being changed or transformed. We think of God staring over – at least I do. This morning I was absolutely corrected by God.
‘I am doing a new thing in You’ same old Chris with New things happening. Dang it – so many times I don’t want to be the same old Chris with new things happening.
I am struggling because when God does the new thing I literally have to let the old Chris die so the new Chris can live and enjoy the new thing.
Oh goodness – I feel like this isn’t making much sense but I am sitting in the revelation that I still need the old to recognize the new. It’s a package deal. That is hard for me to comprehend. It’s easier to know God let stuff go He cleaned me up and set me free.
The Truth is when I am forced to look at my old and look at the new it shows me who God is and who I am to Him. I am now grateful He chose to keep the old while He was giving me a new identity.
Heavenly Father as You replace our old identity and give us a new one I pray that we live on Your word, Your identity, Your peace l, Your comfort, and Your love.
Remind us that our identity always belongs to You. The labels this world gives us will pass away but what You give us lasts an eternity.
Father as we become more kingdom mind focused I pray that You are finding a space in our lives to move and do something new without us getting in Your way.
Father God I rejoice that You are all together worthy of all the things both great and small. I dance out of my bed singing songs of praise, I bow then kneel in full submission of Your mighty hand in my home.
I give You all power in and around my home. I pray all these prayers fall in your will in the mighty name of Jesus amen.
