Topic: The God Of New Beginning At Work
SCRIPTURE: Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God always has something new to offer – new manifestations, new strategies, new power and new ability.
Earlier, we saw that God proves Himself at the beginning of new phases and seasons of life. We noted three scenarios where God proved Himself as the God of new beginnings in Scripture.
Today, we shall look at three more instances where God proved Himself as the God of new beginnings:
At the Lake of Gennesaret (Luke 5:1-6).
At the lake of Gennesaret, Simon Peter and other fishermen toiled all night but could not catch even a fish. They concluded that they had failed, and were already washing their nets to go home. Then Jesus, the God of new beginnings, stepped in and said to Peter, “Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.” (Luke 5:4). They did as instructed and caught a multitude of fishes and their net broke. That was the God of new beginnings at work.
Beloved, you might have toiled all night like Peter and failed. You might have done your best, yet nothing seems to work; and you may have concluded that you will not succeed anymore. I want to let you know that God is giving you a new beginning and you shall have bountiful harvests like Peter.
At the Wedding in Cana of Galilee – John 2:1-11.
At the wedding in Cana of Galilee, the wine finished. When Mary told Jesus that the people had no wine, Jesus told the servants to fill the water pots with water, and after they had done that, the water miraculously turned to wine. A new “unfinishable” or “finishless” wine arrived because the God of new beginnings was at work (John 2:1-11).
The Change in the Life of Job – Job 42:10.
Job was afflicted by the devil and lost everything he had. He came down to nothing. Then the God of new beginnings showed up and changed his life (Job 42:10). And the latter end of Job became better than his beginning (Job 42:12).
Please understand that God never runs out of news things. God always has something new to offer – new manifestations, new strategies, new power and new ability. I decree that you shall experience a new beginning with God, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: God always has something new to offer – new manifestations, new strategies, new power and new ability.
Make demands on the God of new beginnings to cause a new beginning in your life.
Persist with God as Job did to experience a breakthrough in life (Job 13:15).
Locate a Word from God and obey it in order to experience a new beginning in life (Luke 5:4-6, John 2:6-8).
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your plan to give me a new beginning. I ask that You show Yourself in my life as the God of new beginnings, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
QUOTE: It is important for us to know the things God hates so that we can hate what He hates and love what He loves. That becomes the beginning of our success and triumph on the face of the earth. Culled from “Who Are You” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Proverbs 13-15
AMAZING FACT: Blood pressure and church attendance were assessed in a probability sample of 3,963 persons aged sixty-five years or older who participated in a Duke EPESE survey. It was discovered that religiously active adults tend to have lower blood pressures than those who are less active. This applies to people who attend church services and other private religious activities regularly.
PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: The God of new beginnings show up in your life and do something new in your spiritual life, in Jesus’ Name.
