Happy New Year! Today is a day of ‘newness’ as an old year has gone and new year has come. Check out some of the ‘new’ things that God has for you as you trust in Him in a deeper way in 2013:
He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God ; Many will see and fear And will trust in the LORD.
Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength ; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.
“Behold, the former things have come to pass, Now I declare new things ; Before they spring forth I proclaim them to you.
“Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth ; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.
22 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 23They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
“And I will give them one heart, and put a new spirit within them. And I will take the heart of stone out of their flesh and give them a heart of flesh
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth
May you receive the new song, the new strength, the new things, the new ways, the new mercies, the new spirit and heart, the new way of living, and the new identity that comes from a life resting upon Jesus!
Let’s dedicate this year to Him,
