“Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.“ Isaiah 42:9
God always takes pleasure and delight in making new things! That is why it is well declared in 2 Corinthians 5:17 that when a man receives Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour into your life, God makes all things new for you!
God gives you a new chance to repent of all your mistakes and sins in life. Sin makes you deserve death because the wages of sin is death according to Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.“
But God is saying through the blood of Jesus Christ that you are redeemed from your sins and all things are new the moment you turn to Jesus and make Him the Lord of your life. Ephesians 1:7 “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.“ Colossians 1:14 “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.“
Now you start a new life by renewing your mind with the Word of God and understanding that everything has become new in your life. “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.“ Romans 12:2 As you start renewing your mind with the Word of God, you’ll begin to see new things coming to pass in your life such as “by His stripes you are healed.” Isaiah 53:5 “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.“ 1 Peter 2:24
God makes all things new in your life and you become a new creation in Christ. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.“ 2 Corinthians 5:17. In much same way, your physical body can also be quickened by the Spirit of God and He makes you healthy in your new life. “But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.“ Romans 8:11
That is why you must renew your mind through His word, so that you can grow and become everything God wants or wills for you in this new life. There must be a transformation in all areas of your life. That is why it is written by the Holy Spirit in the third letter of John “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.“ 3John 2 He said above all things God wants you well, material level, spiritual level and even in your health, because that is the reason Jesus came to destroy all the works of the devil that destroys people’s lives.
“He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.“ 1 John 3:8 He came to make all things new for you. Therefore by redemption you are entitled to total freedom in all areas of your life. “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.“ John 8:36.
This month of January and the year 2016 is our year of restoration, that means whatever is missing or you have lost in your past, God is going to restore them back in Jesus’ Name. “He sent His word and healed them.” Ps107:20
Don’t miss it for anything
