Old is Gone, New Has Come

Posted on Posted in devotions

A new year represents a fresh start. It’s as if someone pressed reset and everyone is given a chance to forget the past and start over. There are naysayers and those who would frown at a new year because they think, “why get excited? It’s just going to be like it always was.” Daughter of the most high King, don’t let this be you. You have a reason to be excited. You have a reason to rejoice and smile because you are not the same person you once were. Just as entering into this new year affords you the opportunity to start afresh, receiving Jesus in your heart makes you a new person entirely. Your old previous condition is gone, and a new life in Christ has come. No matter what you have experienced last year, through Him, life always gets better and better, sweeter and sweeter!

“Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!” 2 Corinthians 5:17 (AMP)

Father God,
Thank You for making all things new in my life. I’m so excited I can’t hardly sit still because the old me is gone and a new life has begun. A new mindset, a new heart, and a fresh start is what I’ve always wanted. You have given me this through Jesus and I am so thankful. Empower me to go into this new year with a confidence in Your ability to make all things new. This will be the best year of my life! In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen

A sincere thank you to our Daughters of the King Daily Devotional Writers.
