Something New

Read Isaiah 43:14-19

This is what the Lord says—
    your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
“For your sake I will send to Babylon
    and bring down as fugitives all the Babylonians,
    in the ships in which they took pride.
15 I am the Lord, your Holy One,
    Israel’s Creator, your King.”

16 This is what the Lord says—
    he who made a way through the sea,
    a path through the mighty waters,
17 who drew out the chariots and horses,
    the army and reinforcements together,
and they lay there, never to rise again,
    extinguished, snuffed out like a wick:
18 “Forget the former things;
    do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing!
    Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
    and streams in the wasteland.

Big Idea: Our past does not have to dictate our future.

You take the cake out of the oven, flip it over and the stupid thing cracks down the middle. Is it ruined? Is it unable to be repaired or used? Should we just trash it and make another? No. You take the icing and cover over all of those cracks and imperfections making it into something new and fresh. Our past is like that cake and God can take any life and make it into something new! No matter what happened in your past, today we can start fresh with God.

In 1 Peter 4:8, the Bible says that , “Love covers a multitude of sins.” God’s love, forgiveness, and grace is ready and available covering your past, your sin, your mistakes, and your failures. Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose again becoming the perfect sacrifice for my sin and for yours. His love on the cross covers our past and makes us into something new. Pray to Him today giving Him your past, your life, and your future and get ready for something new!
