Psalm 23:2 ‘He makes me lie down in green pastures.’
God wants to do something fresh and give us a fresh start.
3 ASPECTS TO TAKE NOTE OF:
God is the God of the fresh start.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Acts 3:19-20 Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.
LET THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD COME UPON YOU
Samson was one of the unusual characters of the Bible. He seemed to make lots of mistakes. But God used him in many ways. Even though he may have made his fair share of mistakes, when the Spirit of the Lord came upon him, awesome things happened.
Judges 15:14 The Spirit of the LORD came powerfully upon him. The ropes on his arms became like charred flax, and the bindings dropped from his hands.
The New Living Translation says it like this: ‘But the Spirit of the LORD came powerfully upon Samson, and he snapped the ropes on his arms as if they were burnt strands of flax, and they fell from his wrists.’ In the Holman Christian Standard Bible it says: ‘The Spirit of the LORD took control of him.’ The touch of the Spirit of the Lord on our lives makes all the difference. In fact, the touch of the Spirit of the Lord on Samson’s life led to great victory!
Judges 15:15 Finding a fresh jawbone of a donkey, he grabbed it and struck down a thousand men.
God has victory in store for you. Let His Spirit come upon you today. Receive a fresh infilling right now. Lord, I pray that You, by Your Holy Spirit will come upon us now. How we need Your Spirit. Give us strength to help us stand. Living water come and flow to us, shower down Your mercy and shower down Your grace on our lives. Amen.
Psalm 65:11 You crown the year with a bountiful harvest; even the hard pathways overflow with abundance.
How gracious is the Lord that He affords us the opportunity to make a fresh start, not only once a year, but each and every day.
