The New has Come...

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” (2 Corinthians 5:17, NIV)

As a believer in Jesus, you are a new creation! The crazy part is we have DNA that is infused by God. We are marked by the Holy Spirit to have a future and to be filled with hope! But it all begins when Christ comes and knocks on our hearts door and we let him in to take control. We are grafted into new life with a new spirit, and a new walk!

There may be “old” things in your life that you are trying to get rid of. Maybe you have old habits or addictions that you want to change. If you’re like me, you have attitudes and patterns that have been developed that need to be changed. Choosing the God way of life is the way to go. Remember today that the new has come. It’s a new year with new opportunities and responsibilities. It’s time for you to be the new you.
We pray that you choose this to be the year that you break old habits and addictions. Let this be the year that you move forward into a new life of victory. Let this be the year that you take hold of all the spiritual blessings the Lord has promised—peace, health, protection and victory.

Be encouraged today because no matter what is happening in your life right now, you have a chance for a new beginning. Choose today to leave the old behind—leave behind old behaviors, old thinking, and old words—and embrace the new by faith because this is your year to experience the new life that He has prepared for you!

When you begin to make new choices that produce new results, you will be amazed at how much life can be fulfilling at all levels! Remember the new only happens when we are choosing to allow Christ consume all parts of our lives then the new comes! Truthfully this is the best journey that we can choose, it is definitely not easy but it is worthwhile! So let’s choose “God first” living!!!!
