About All Things New Series
We like the familiar by thinking it's 'all there is.' God is the Creator, exploding with imagination and bursting with plans, unexpected and beyond our dreams. Are we ready? Will we receive the new?
Lamentations 3:22, 23 NIV
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.
The manna of the wilderness speaks many things that reveal how God gives and what God values. Manna speaks. It means yesterday is irrelevant and tomorrow doesn’t exist yet. In this day only – actually for just this moment – is God’s sweet supply and inner nourishment.
Jesus prayed, “Give us THIS DAY our daily bread.” To ‘eat the new’ of God’s mercies, the old must go… And that means my past and my future.
NOW is the NEW!
