Making Room For The New
For many of us we have been saved for some time now, and are grateful for our salvation. We have experienced a new life in Christ like never before, and since that very day we gave our lives to Christ we can testify that we have never been the same. Although we are saved and have professed Christ as our Savior if we are not careful we can become caught up in the motions of being saved, and not live out the newness of our salvation daily. If we are not careful we can slip back to old habits and old ways and forget that we are new creations in Christ. The Scripture reminds us that, if anyone be in Christ, they are a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. I encourage you today to remember you are a new creature in Christ and because you are, old things are passing away and other things are becoming new. No matter how long you have been saved, God is doing new things in your life. No matter how long you have been on the road of salvation there are some old things that need to pass away, so you can begin to make room for the new things that God is doing in your life. As we are in the last month of the year, allow some old things to pass away, and faith enough to make room for the new things that God wants to do in your life. You are a new creature, not just when you gave your life to Christ, but you are a new creature now and God is doing new things in your life, and He wants to continue to do great things for you. I am so grateful that God changed my life so many years ago, and I am also grateful that He continues to change my life even right now. As I allow the old things to pass away, I am being prepared to receive all of the new things God is going to do in my life. Since I know I am a new creature, and things are becoming new daily in my life I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Lord thank you for making me a new creature. Give me the strength to allow old things to pass away, and prepare me for the new things in you that are coming my way. In Jesus Name Amen.
