All Things New/Series

part 1

With every new year is like a fresh start, for me it is anyways. I get out the planner and try at least to sketch out my biggest plans and ideas for the year. Sometimes I fall short. The momentum I have in the beginning starts to slack off and I’m in a rut. Ever feel this way? But reading throughout the Bible we start to see that God’s character is all about making things new. From the Earth He created & the Heavens. And His most prized possession, us.

REVELATION 21:5 “And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” 

ALL THROUGH TIME WE SEE THAT GOD LOVES NEW THINGS:

LEVITICUS — ASKS FOR A NEW GRAIN OFFERING

NUMBERS — GOD GAVE ISREAL NEW WINE AND NEW GRAIN

PSALMS — GOD TOLD US THAT HE LOVES A NEW SONG

ISAIAH — GOD DECLARES NEW THINGS FOR HIS PEOPLE, HE GIVES US A NEW NAME AND PROMISES TO MAKE A NEW HEAVENS AND NEW EARTH

JEREMIAH — GOD MAKES US PART OF A NEW COVENANT

LAMENTATIONS — GODS MERCIES ARE NEW EVERY MORNING

EZEKIEL —  GOD GIVES US A NEW HEART AND A NEW SPIRIT

MATTHEW — JESUS LOOKS FOR NEW WINE SKINS TO USE

JOHN — JESUS GAVE US A NEW COMMANDMENT

2 COR — GOD MAKES US A NEW CREATION AND PROMISES TO MAKE ALL THINGS NEW

REVELATIONS —GOD PROMISES A NEW JERUSALEM


LOOKING AT THE WORLD TODAY WE MAY THINK FOR A MOMENT THAT HE IS DONE MAKING NEW THINGS. BUT ITS PART OF HIS NATURE, HIS BEHAVIOR, HIS CHARACTER.

HE’S NOT DONE MAKING HIS BRIDE NEW

HE’S NOT DONE MAKING THIS COUNTRY NEW

HE’S NOT DONE MAKING THIS WORLD NEW

IN THE BOOK OF GENESIS, THE FIRST FEW VERSES WE CAN SEE THAT GOD IS SUPREME IN HIS PERSON — AS A TRIUNE GOD; HIS POWER – IN ACTIVITY AND WORD; 

AND HIS PURPOSE – AS CREATOR, DESIGNER, REBUILDER, RESTORER. HE CREATED OUR WORLD AND US WITH A PURPOSE.

IN THE FIRST CHAPTER OF GENESIS WE READ THAT

  • GOD CREATED  
  • THE SPIRIT OF GOD HOVERED
  • GOD SPOKE
  • GOD NAMED

THIS YEAR LETS ENGAGE WITH THESE 4 ACTIONS OF GOD

  1. WHAT DO YOU NEED GOD TO CREATE IN YOU?
  2. AS THE SPIRIT HOVERED OVER THE DARK AND EMPTY WATERS, WAITING TO CREATE — WHAT ARE THE DARK AND EMPTY PLACES OF YOUR OWN LIFE AND WHERE DO YOU NEED THE SPIRIT OF GOD TO HOVER AND MOVE?
  3. WHAT WORDS DO YOU NEED TO HEAR HIM SPEAK OVER YOU OR WHAT TRUTH DO YOU NEED TO SPEAK INTO YOUR OWN SITUATION?
  4. HE SEES YOU, HE LOVES YOU, HE CREATED YOU – ON PURPOSE AND FOR A PURPOSE.
