By the time you read this the New Year will be a month old and many of the resolutions we made will already be consigned to history.
The New Year is, of course, a time to make new starts and perhaps to look to the future with a degree of expectancy in our hearts. Wellspring Church often uses the start of a New Year to seek God for His plans and purposes for the months ahead. As our people prayed, there was agreement that God was wanting to do a new thing. The scripture many of us focussed on was found in the Book of Isaiah chapter 43 verse 19:
“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
God has plans for each and every one of us and that includes doing something new in our lives. As a church, we will continue to seek God as to what ‘new things’ He wants to do for us and we hope to report more on this in the coming months.
“Does God want to do something new in your life?”
Maybe you’ve been living the same life for many years and never seem to get out of the rut. Are you tired of the same old, same old?
Perhaps now is the time to make a change; time to ask God what plans and purposes He has for you.
In the Book of Jeremiah, chapter 29, God says:
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord; plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
If you are tired of the same old, same old, why not ask God what His plans are for your life?
We know many people who have felt abandoned by life, by their friends, by God. As they have fallen on their knees and asked God to come into their lives, they have had a life-changing experience and now walk with God on a daily basis. God know the plans He has for us and the positive message is that these are plans for our welfare and to give us a future and a hope.
Picking up on the original verse – God is wanting to do a new thing in your life. You may never have considered God as being part of your life, but He has been watching over you for many years, waiting for you to come to this moment when you are willing to be changed.
God is a God of infinite patience and equally he is the perfect gentleman. He doesn’t push in – He waits to be asked. God knows what is best for you. He has plans for you. He wants you to come to Him But – ah yes there is a but – He is waiting for you to turn to Him, to admit before Him that doing it ‘your way’ doesn’t really work and that you need His help.
If you feel the time has now come to turn away from the same old, same old and want to meet with God and His Son Jesus, we invite you to come along and join us any Sunday morning at 11am. We would love to meet you and tell you more of the Jesus we know and love.
