The God of New Beginnings

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.   ― Isaiah 43:18-19

 

Christmas is just past, and we have just rung in the New Year with all the excitement and joyful anticipation that we muster.  Many people take this time to do some soul searching, evaluate various aspects of their lives and perhaps attempt to make changes in their various patterns of living as they see fit.

That is all fine and good.  But isn’t exciting and encouraging to know that our God is the God of New Beginnings! That He brings new things into our lives to challenge us and help us to grow in our faith and become the man or woman He wants us to become.

Over the next several weeks we will be exploring ways in which God brings “new things” into our lives and hopefully we will begin to see them in a positive light as we come to experience Him as, “The God of New Beginnings.”
