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
The New Year has arrived and what are we thinking about. How are we going to make it in this New Year? I guess we cannot exclude Covid-19 anymore since a new variant has entered upon the world. Along with Covid-19 came conspiracy theories that promote an agenda for their own benefit in selling products that are a cure, but no cure has been proven. Whatever you are hearing today may be an alternate reality game due to what people are believing or hearing on social media sites. The biggest culprit is the mouth.
“Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.”Matthew 15:11
Let us remember the words of Jesus that it is our mouth that pollutes, degrades, and impairs us as human beings. Our God is concerned about our heart and what we put into our minds. This is what can pollute our actions towards death instead of health. Conspiracy theories bring confusion, fear, anxiety, and stress. Be careful how you respond. Step back and reconsider. Guard your tongue and pray for revelation of the truth in everything that comes your way. Remember as a Christian we are not to walk by sight, but by faith [see 2 Corinthians 5:7]. God is in the business of doing a new thing. He wants to birth in us a new heart and spirit. He will make a way through the wilderness and desert that many Christians are experiencing. Our God is making new wine to flow out of our belly. Job exclaimed, “Behold, my belly is as wine which hath no vent; it is ready to burst like new bottles [see Job 32:19].”
What did Job experience when he said his belly is as wine and was ready to burst like new bottles? He was speaking about the Spirit of God. Jesus spoke about it in John 7:38, “If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. We need the living waters to flow within our human bodies. This will be the awakening that many have been praying for regarding the movement of the Holy Spirit. But we need to remember that it begins within everyone’s heart. This begins by setting aside all doubts and believing in who Jesus is and being thirsty for more of His Prescence. “Are you thirsty, asked Jesus? Then come unto me and drink.” Drink of the new wine of the Holy Spirit. This is what Ezekiel was talking about in chapter 36. I urge you all to read it. In verse 17, Ezekiel said, “Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their own way and by their doings. “
Going your own way and doing what you want will bring destruction because you are not following God. There are many people who are scattered because they have no true guide to guide them back into the light of the revelations of God. God is wanting to cleanse us and put a new heart and spirit within us, so that we will not devour one another anymore.
A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.Ezekiel 36:26
God is not interested in a get rich theme church, he is interested in a body that belongs to him through Jesus Christ. Will we deny self and pick up the cross of Christ and walk in the Spirit? Will we carry the new wine within our bellies? This is the time to think about the true direction of God and his provisions. We need to trust and obey God for the time of harvest. Pray for the harvest of souls. Pray for your own soul to be renewed and restored. His supply is inexhaustible when we hear and obey His word. We each need to be a new man and women renewed in the knowledge after His image and not the image of any other man who does not walk in the love of Christ [see Colossians 3:10]. It is time to get out of the cycle of doing the same thing repeatedly. You cannot go back to the way things were, for God is creating a new thing and way to go.
The fear response is to protect yourself, but God wants you to trust him. He wants to build your faith in Him. He will make all things new for He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is thirsty a fountain of the water of life freely [Revelation 21:6]. Are you ready to let go and trust Him for everything you need? Are you thirsty for the fountain of living water to flow in your life? Pray and get ready for the fountain to flow within you. Ask and receive it in Jesus’ name.
Know that every day, you are standing on Holy ground.
When I walked through the door
I sensed His presence
And I knew this was a place
Where love abounds
For this is a temple
Jehovah God abides here
And we are standing in His presence
On holy ground
We are standing on holy ground
And I know that there
Are angels all around
Let us praise Jesus now
We are standing in His presence
On holy ground
