Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new. Now it will spring forth. Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:18-19.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

Each morning is like a mini-resurrection where you start anew with a clean slate. Let us write the story of your day together and let us make it a beautiful story. And as you add each new day with Me to the story it will go from glory to glory until your assignment is complete. You will smile and with Jesus and with My apostle Paul be able to say that you have finished the work I gave you to do and come running into My arms for your rewards.

Each day seek My direction and My protection so you stay on track and are not pulled aside into a distracting detour. But above all, seek My face so you are always in fellowship with Me and ready to be directed by My eyes upon you. Don’t get caught in routine. Even in your routine I am always doing something new to take you up to a higher level.

And this is today’s step to having perfect joy that no one and nothing can take from you: “Joy in New Beginnings.” No matter what sins, what foolish things, what unwise things, what mistakes and what evil things you have done, I give you the opportunity each day to begin anew, and at a higher level, not going backwards. When the past is over, it is over and gone, except for the good you have done, but each morning My mercies are new. Come with confidence to My throne and find mercy and grace for help in time of need just when you need it.

Everyone loves to hear, do and see new things. But not everyone believes wonderful new things are available to them every day. They are trapped and oppressed with past sins, addictions, financial lack, and things of the curse and the mediocrity of an unrenewed mind. Even though I have rescued you who believe in My Son from darkness and translated you into the Light of the kingdom of My beloved Son, many of you have not taken hold of this and received it.

But, you My children, Do you not know? Have you not heard? I, the Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, do not become weary or tired. My understanding is inscrutable. I give strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might I increase power. My grace is more than sufficient for you. Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, yet those who wait upon Me will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary. Isaiah 40:28-31.

If you are willing to leave your past behind and go forward with Me, your life will become new.

Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new. Now it will spring forth. Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:18-19.

Many of you are limiting yourself and not doing your assignment. Do not leave the earth without having finished the work I gave you to do. It has great reward. Do not leave unfinished business so that someone else has to complete your assignment and do their assignment as well.

Do not say you cannot, I gave you the assignment that fits you exactly with the talents, gifts, and potential I gave you, it is all built into you when I formed you in the womb and planned from everlasting. You were born for such a time as this. And no matter how long you have veered from your assignment, it is time to take it up anew. Because I have given waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My chosen people. The people whom I formed for Myself will declare My praise.

Do you not know that Jesus has released you from your sins by His blood and made you a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of My own? A Kingdom people, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of My glory, for I have called you out of darkness into My marvelous light! Children of Light in whom there is no longer any darkness at all in My sight. For you once were not a people, but now you are My people; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. 1 Peter 2:9-10.

I have called you to My glory and My Kingdom. You have a high calling in Christ and an inheritance that is joint with His. Go forward each morning in a new beginning and each day will be better than the one before.

There are places you should have gone that you did not. It is time to start accelerating, for it is a new beginning for you. It is time to go for it all. It is time to cultivate the hundred-fold.

I have rescued you out of our past and made you kings and priests in My Kingdom. Jesus came on a rescue mission and He finished the work I gave Him to do. Take advantage of His finished work and go forward to do the works He did and greater that I prepared for you in advance that you might live in them. And these works will give you joy, exceedingly great joy for they were prepared just for you.

No matter what you have done or what time you have wasted, it does not matter. Behold, I am doing something new and fresh for you. And this is not hard for Me. Look at the sun, the moon, ad the stars, I set those in place and hold them right where they should be and set up laws that govern them that they cannot break. I made them and set them in place. They are huge in size but I made them of very small particles that are too small for your eye to see. Everything I make is of intricate detail. Think of a butterfly wing with all its colors and capability to fly and to flutter. And the metamorphosis that makes it.

There is so much I have made in the vast universe that you do not even see or know. There are colors you cannot see yet and sounds you cannot hear. And I made all this by My Word. And when I speak that Word, such as “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them,” it was so. The earth brought forth what I spoke, but in My Word there was all that was in them to produce, reproduce, and the systems that produced those things. It was all just in the one Word, “tree” that everything was in it for life.

My plans generate in Me, as thoughts and designs, and when I speak it and it comes into existence it is complete with all it needs for life and for godliness within it for all generations. My thoughts generate My Words which then birth that thought into the earth and it is complete with all its intricate details, inner systems, organs and parts when it comes forth.

I made everything that is made by My Word. And I have given you the privilege and honor of speaking My Word and getting the plans and results within it released in your life. I have put My Words in your mouth, this is Covenant with Me. And My Spirit is in you and on you as My gift.

This is vaster than the universe because it also contains Heaven because I have given you clear access to Me in Jesus by the Spirit.

And though I fill the universe and hold it together by My Word, I see you and know all your thoughts and words, I know when you sit and when you stand. And I love you and reconciled you to Me in Jesus. I am mindful of you.

David sang, “When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained. What is man that You take thought of him, and the son of man that You care for him?” Psalm 8:3-4.

The years that are past of oppression, fears, and tears that have so grieved you, it is time you put that all away and see Me for who I AM. I am with you, in you, for you, and I want you to be that overcomer who sits on My throne with Me, I want to reward you, I want to bless you. I want to bring you home a champion. Will you let Me do that with you? Are you willing to start something new? Are you willing to have a new beginning?

Moses hid out in desert land for forty years and then I came and spoke to him. He did not think he even wanted to get out of the rut he had put himself in, but when he did I gave him forty years of adventures like no one has ever had.

And Joshua, he thought he would just be a servant to Moses and stay with Me in the tent of the meeting, but I called him out to be a leader of a myriad of people to conquer the Promised Land, and I told him how—by My Words in his heart and in his mouth. And he went with the new beginning.

And Caleb, at eighty-five began a new adventure after being held in the wilderness with those who had no faith in My Word for forty years. And I renewed his youth, as I had for Moses, and he conquered giants single handedly.

And think of Lydia, a hard working dyer of purple goods went down to a place of prayer by the river and met My apostle Paul, but she also met Me, and her life had a new beginning. She even had a church in her home where new believers met to worship and learn of Jesus.

And My apostle Paul himself had a new beginning when Jesus appeared to him and changed the course of his life forever. And he was willing to run in the new beginning. He wrote, “Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14.

People who thought they were trapped, like Gideon, I showed up and they had a new beginning.

Isn’t it time for you to wake up from your sleep to the righteousness you have in Christ and Christ will light your way to a new beginning.

I took My people out of the slavery of Egypt to give them a new beginning in a new and beautiful land. But they got stuck in the desert by fear and ingratitude and would not enter their beautiful promised land with Me. They limited Me and it grieved Me.

Wake up to who I am and I can give you a new beginning. I did it for the humble Esther. She thought she was a prisoner and orphan that would never be much of anything and I gave her a new beginning as the queen of the vast empire of Persia in order to save My people Israel. She was on assignment and she completed hers.

Abraham heard My voice and followed Me and I gave him a new beginning. And I gave you all a new beginning in  him for his obedience to My Word made him the one chosen to father the line of the Messiah.

Do not be like Peter who started to sink in the water, be willing to walk with Me on the water.

But later, after he denied Jesus three times, I gave him a new beginning that he loved and cherished.

It is pure joy to find out you are not stuck in what you have done. I want to give you a new beginning. Peter found that out, Noah found that out, Jonah found it out. Have you?

I am always making things new. Even in Heaven this will be so. I always have a new project ready. I make all things new. Nothing is too hard for Me, nothing is too wonderful for Me, and nothing is impossible for Me. But it is by My Word I do all these things.

And you can never have a new beginning if you do not know Me and what I have done for you in Christ. Otherwise you will stay stuck in your sins, your addictions, your anger and your past. You will see Me as against you and not with you. As a withholder and not a generous provider that has already given you all you need to succeed and have days of Heaven on earth.

I had to introduce Myself to Abraham and show him all I would do for him and he believed Me and walked it out with Me to the finish line. But I had to show him the lesson of the stars.

Let Me show you who I am. I love to introduce Myself to you by My Word.

I love you. Do you want a new beginning? I have it for you, you just have to walk it out. Each morning My mercies are new.

Remember my affliction and my wandering, the wormwood and bitterness. Surely my soul remembers and is bowed down within me. This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope. The LORD’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is Your faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I have hope in Him.” The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him. Lamentations 3:19-25.
