New Plan: Made New (Day 1)

  “I am making everything new!” - Revelation 21:5  Have you ever wished you were different? Is there a part of your life that you wish you could change? Can you become more of the person you long to be?  There is something in all of us that longs to be different than who we currently are. We want to be more confident, to be braver, and to stand up for what’s right. We want to be free from the shame that grips us, and to believe we are truly loved as we are.  The truth is: who we are is within us; already built-in. When God created us, he stamped us with his own image — which means we are loved, and created with a purpose. God has a plan for you and it’s bigger than you think.  His plans begin with us being made new… transforming us from the inside out. Jesus promises in Scripture that he will make all things new. He says in Revelation, “I am making everything new!” That promise includes us. You can be different. Your life can change. You can become the person God has created you to be.

  Living in the moment can be hard. It’s difficult to simply enjoy  today , what we have  today , and who we get to experience it with  today . We have so many demands for our attention, demands on our schedules, and demands on our mental energy. Sometimes it feels like today is impossible to concentrate on because tomorrow is already tugging on us. Jesus told us to do something radical—He told us not to worry about tomorrow. He tells us in Matthew 6:34 that He will equip us to deal with today’s trouble  only —not tomorrow, next week, or next month. Some days this is harder than others. It’s easy for me not to worry about tomorrow when “tomorrow” is supposed to be a relaxing Saturday off. But it becomes a lot more difficult when “tomorrow” is the day that I have that big meeting (or dentist appointment!). If we worry about tomorrow and whatever we think it might bring, we’re trying to control something that’s actually under  His  control, and not ours. If we’re honest with ourselves, w

  In life, you will have trouble. Because of our sinful nature and the schemes of the enemy, trouble can be found all around. We shouldn’t be surprised by our troubles; Jesus tells us plainly that we will have trouble in this world. Why would He say that? Because He’s honest, and He loves us. By preparing us in advance, Jesus is helping us avoid doubt and fear when we do find ourselves in hard times. Jesus showed us what humble obedience looks like. He was obedient through far more difficult things than most of us will ever face—even to death on the cross. Now, He sits at the right hand of God the Father, interceding on our behalf. We can take comfort   in knowing we have a friend who sympathizes with our weaknesses. We can celebrate knowing that every difficult journey draws us closer to Christ and His everlasting kingdom. This is our hope: Jesus Christ has overcome sin and death forever. Death could not hold Him, the grave could not contain Him, the power of sin could not defeat Him,
