He Makes All Things New
Updated: Mar 9
And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. (Revelation 21:5)
Do you feel as if this last year was less than what you hoped it would be? Were there situations that brought grief, devastation or disappointment?
Do you feel as if certain circumstances or relationship dynamics were not in the will of God? Take heart. God is the maker and initiator of New Things!
Just take a moment and think about some of the ways that God has made all things new. When the Old Covenant had served its purpose- God established a New Covenant.
A superior covenant with superior promises.
When we were dead in our sins, God did a new thing and made us alive with Christ.
When the demoniac’s soul and spirit was broken and fragmented from evil oppression, Jesus set him free; He made him a new person.
When all natural evidence pointed to defeat when Christ was crucified, died and was buried, God did a new thing and raised Him up unto Resurrection Life!
God’s eternal power to create, and recreate is boundless. His mercies are new every morning .
New is God’s idea. God is the original author of the new. From Genesis through Revelation, He is redeeming. Making whole. Transforming.
In light of God’s exceeding great power ...do it now. Make a list of all of the things in your life that you would like to see God TO MAKE NEW. Don’t hold back. List your disappointments, your shattered dreams, your relationships- anything that pertains to your life.
Do you need a new perspective? Write it down. Do you need a new and better attitude? Write it down. Do you need relationships transformed? Write it down. Do you need new and creative ways to teach? Write it down. New ways to pray? Write it down. Newness of faith? Yes! Believe for it.
After you do this, lift the concerns up to God and thank Him ahead of time for the newness He is bringing into the situations. Then watch and wait. He will do it. He’s true and faithful. We have the very words of Jesus himself to testify: “Behold, I make all things new.”
