Day EighteenPastor Kathy Vance
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.
Isaiah 43:18-19 (NLT)
We are all a “work in progress.” We all have a past where we have messed up or fallen short. Get over it; You’re not alone! God knows where we have been, what we have been through and where we are now. And His love for us never fails, never gives up, and never runs out! He sees all our imperfections and loves us anyway. In Christ, we all have a future that is bright with promise. “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” (I Corinthians 2:9) You have no idea how great your future is! But to walk in our blessing we must let go of the past.
In the above verse, God is speaking to us and telling us that He wants to rekindle our fire and passion for Him like never before! Right this very moment God is at work in you and at work around you. He is working in your life for good, and He is moving things out of your pathway that have tried to keep you from moving forward! He is making a way where there has seemed to be no way, and He will get you safely to where you need to go. So as this new year begins, it’s time to get excited about the new things that God is doing in your life. It’s time to stir up the Spirit within you and look with great hope and expectation to what the Lord has in store for you in 2019!
Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me to let go of the past. Open my eyes so that I may see that new thing you are doing in my life. I know your thoughts toward me are of peace, to give me a future and a hope and I trust that You who began a good work in me will continue to bring it to completion. In Jesus name, Amen.
