BRAND NEW, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 7/29/19, (Across my desk this morning.)
“And He who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new…”Rev. 21:5,
He Makes All Things New
When God puts a dream in your heart, when He puts a promise on the inside, He deposits within you everything you need to accomplish that dream. He wouldn’t give you the desire to do something without giving you the ability to fulfill it. In fact, the Scripture tells us that God gives us the desires of our heart. In other words, He puts the desire inside of us and then works with us to bring it to pass. Oftentimes people set out to accomplish their dreams, but they face a setback or disappointment, and then they feel as though their time has passed. But know today that no matter where you’ve come from, no matter what’s happened in your past, God wants to make you new. He wants to give you a “do over,” a fresh start. If you feel like you’ve missed opportunities in your life, if you feel like your time has passed, remember that today is a new day. You are a new person, and God has new opportunities in store for you. If one dream has died, it’s time to dream a new dream. He makes all things new in your life today!
A Prayer for Today
“Father in heaven, thank You for making all things new. I give You this day and invite You to have Your way in every area of my life. I choose to receive all the promises You have in store for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen”
While growing up in my world when something was very special it was called “Brand New” which meant the best that could be found to do what it did. And the 21st Chapter of The Revelation is well worth the time to consider as it is The Creator’s promise to not only make all things “Brand New” but us as well so that we are able to live with HIM in HIS timeless dimension of eternity. And that promise and vision that He has shared, if we believe it, helps up to prepare for that event while here in time.
We live in a dying world full of corruption and degradation. But it is an exceptional gymnasium to help us to grow spiritually if we have the long view. And the changes that are needed start in us as we make Christ Jesus our LORD and receive HIS forgiveness for our pride, rebellion and many sins. And as we saturate ourselves with the Good Book and find HIS commandments and keep them we begin to change to be in HIS IMAGE and LIKENESS. Of course many of our friends and family will think we have lost all our marbles and began to shun us and talk stink about us. When you turn on the light, the night creatures will all head for the darkness. But some of us want to live in the light and those are the ones that the Holy Spirit will help to not only find the light but grow in the light. I have a tract that I am very fond of called, “Let There Be Light” so will add it. So getting the “LONG VIEW” is extremely important for finding your way there. Where there is no vision, the people die. LIFE is not about all the stuff, but in following the light to God. He is LIGHT and in HIM there is no darkness at all.
Be ye followers of the light and make Heaven your ultimate home. Be Blessed in your day, Ken<><
Let There Be Light
And God said, let there be light and there was light: (1). Arise, shine: for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee (2). Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead and Christ shall give thee light (3). This is the message which we have heard and declare unto you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all (4). He that doeth the truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God (5). If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin (6). This is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil (7). For everyone that doeth evil hateth the light neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved (8). But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light (9). Thy Light shall break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward (10). Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. (11). The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light (12). The city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the Light thereof (13). And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever (14).

You are an eternal soul, according to the Holy Bible. And in this life only, you have an opportunity to choose God’s Light for eternity.
May you choose wisely.
