Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV)
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.
Out with the old in with the new. Be willing to be uncomfortable while God establishes you in a new normal. New can feel uncertain and big. Believe that God has made and equipped you to be in this place he has brought you to. Be free to discover this new place.
Remember, God will not bring you to a new level if you have not been groomed by the previous level. See yourself in your newness even if you still feel the residue of the old. Claim it by making the necessary adjustments evolution requires. Even if it knocks, do not let the old understanding and ways in, when walking on new roads and swimming in new waters. Learn your brand new and allow God to reveal your new normal all around you.
CHALLENGE, PRAYER OR FAST | Write about the new place God is bringing you into. The scripture listed above asks, “Shall you not know it?” Sometimes we are so focused on why things are changing and how they are different, that we miss what brand new brings. To truly LIVE in the brand-new, takes slowing down to recognize what has grown from seeds we have planted. Seek God and write what you see so far. Be hopeful and free to receive the wonders and things that are revealed.
