I pray you had an amazing celebration of our most important and awesome day of the year!!!
This song by Hillsong is amazing...
Make Me a vessel.. Make me an offering.. Make me whatever you want me to be.God, I came here with nothing, with all you have given me, Jesus bring new life out of me.
Jesus bring new life out of me..
WOW... He is making all things new through the difficulties we are facing... Do you see it?
Old things are being cleared away, making way for the new.
📖 Luke 5:37
37 And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined.
In Luke 5:33-39 Jesus was responding to the Pharisees and the scribes, when they complained about Him and His disciples not fasting, as John the Baptist’s disciples did. The Pharisees were so set in the old ways that they didn’t recognise the time of their visitation. They were comfortable with the tradition of the elders. But Jesus was bringing something new, which they weren’t ready for. Instead of being open and receptive, they tried to find mistakes about the things Jesus did.
Yet this isn’t a new thing. We see it over and over again in history. When the children of Israel left Egypt they kept looking back to what they would have had in Egypt, and failed to recognise what God was doing for them on their journey to the Promised Land.
God is always on the move, doing something, but if we’re comfortable with the old then we’ll fight the new God’s bringing. We should be willing to move as the cloud moves, be willing to adjust and be flexible, always listening to what the Lord is saying or doing now.
Wine stretches wineskins as it ferments. When we say "yes" to the call of Jesus, and when we open our lives to his new wine, we embark on an adventure of discipleship. Then we have the extraordinary privilege of participating in God's kingdom work, and there's nothing better in life than this. It’s not just about moving into the new, but also having to wait instead of rushing on. It’s about taking each step with Him
What is God saying now, and are you willing to walk into the new thing? What is the condition of the atmosphere? Do you need to abort take off? Should you wait for God before you move? Isaiah 43:18-19 says ‘Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert’.
What things are new in your life since the quarantine? Quiet time with our Lord, Family time, fervent prayer, exercise, cleaning out clutter? What new things have you started doing since this quarantine? I encourage us all to keep doing it when the quarantine is over. All distractions and idols have been removed. We are being reset. God is showing us what is truly important.
Make us new Jesus. Make us more like You. New life brings new power, new freedom...
Please list to this song from Hillsong..
We have a new fire! We have a new day... We came here with nothing... Jesus is bringing new life out of us!!
Doesn't matter how young or old we are...
PLEASE PROMISE ME YOU WILL LISTEN TO THIS SONG FROM HILLSONG...WOW.. ITS JUST THERE ARE NO WORDS NEEDED... BE BLESSED:
New Wine- Brooke Ligertwood Brasil
For many of us, this quarantine is a time of refining. In the pressing and crushing, God is making new wine. And with the new wine, new wineskins are needed.
Prayer: Lord, teach me to listen to Your voice. Renew my mind daily so I can hear Your will. I’m sorry for when I’ve insisted on my old ways while You’re doing a new thing. I’m willing to be flexible and obedient to what You’re doing now. Amen.
