A Fresh Start
New month, fresh start.
The old month is coming to an end, the new one is about to begin! How do we have a fresh start?
Stop dwelling on the past. Don't even remember the former things. I am doing something brand new, something unheard of. Even now its sprouts and grows and matures. Don't you perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and open up flowing streams in the desert.
– Isaiah 43:18-19
This new month, God wants to start fresh with us right now. It doesn't matter where we are or what we've done, a new beginning can happen right now.
Get right with God
The first step to a fresh start is to get right with God. Ask for forgiveness of your sins – He forgives and forgets our past. Confess your sins and ask Him to forgive them, and move forward and get right with God.
Walk in the Holy Spirit
We are filled with the Holy Spirit at salvation, but a fresh filling is needed to help with this fresh start. Ask God to fill you with the power of the Holy Spirit – be overflowed in His power, and not just running on the fumes of it.
If we constantly dwell on the past, then there will be no new work in our lives. Start to establish new habits in your life – read your Bible daily, spend time in prayer, start to give of yourself, write your thoughts in a journal.
