God Will Give You a New Beginning
Reading for the Day: 2 Corinthians 5:17
“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”
Have you ever wished that you could have a “do over”? Kids often call this when they make a mistake playing a game. They just start again as if the unfortunate incident never happened.
As you get older, this concept takes on new meaning. As adults, we lack the childlike freedom that a “do over” can bring. We just don’t believe that such things are possible anymore.
God is in the “do over” business. When you accept Jesus Christ into your life, you get a second chance to make a first impression. Some of us may be thinking like Nicodemus when he asked Jesus if a man could reenter the womb and be born again. Our new beginning comes in the form of a spiritual birth that changes us from the inside out.
Our past wrongs are forgiven. Unlike people who can hold a grudge for years, God simply forgets our wrongs and lovingly gives us a new path to follow. It seems too incredible to believe but God is not complicated.
This change isn’t about feelings but about focus. As long as we strive and desire to take our lead from God, He is faithful to give us a clean heart and a new lease on life. Others may notice it in us before we do. God doesn’t change our appearance, but people do “see” us differently.
Are you tired of living a life of defeat and regret? Go to God and ask for a new life.
Prayer Suggestions: Create in me a clean heart, Lord. I know that if You change me I will be changed forever.
