God is releasing NEW BEGINNINGS in people's lives. I know you can experience that new beginning. No season is permanent. God is a God of restoration, forgiveness, healing and He is amazing at making all things new.
Maybe you need a new beginning in different ways. Maybe you have been going through a difficult season fighting spiritual warfare. Or maybe there has been a relationship conflict in your life. Or maybe you need some circumstances to shift and change. Or maybe you have been struggling with the flesh and need a fresh cleansing by the blood of Jesus.
One thing I have learned is that as Christians we have the power to co-labor with God and participate in the shifting of our season. What you accept in your life is what will be. When you begin to get a glimpse of God's amazing love, grace and goodness your faith is impacted and you begin to see that God has something GOOD for you.
Here are some simple steps you can apply to your life today to see a NEW BEGINNING released for you.
If you have been struggling with your flesh or a sin, spend time waiting on God. Confess your sin to Him. Ask Him for forgiveness and to cleanse you. Then ask Him to set you free and deliver you from any darkness you may have opened a door to.
Renew your mind with the truth that God is a good God and is working all things for your good. Lift your heart by focusing on the fact that God is working even when you can't see it. This is called trust. Trusting God will give you peace and release joy in your heart.
If you see something in your life that you don't like, first commit it to God in prayer. Ask God for His power, grace and strength. Then ask what changes you can make to participate in the shift you want to see. The Holy Spirit can give you one simple idea that can make a huge difference.
Prophecy out loud to the situation. You carry divine authority in your words. Don't just speak what you see in the natural. Speak the mind of God and the word of God over the situation. Command it to line up to God's truth.
- Then obey God in what He tells you to do. Usually in breakthrough and a shift of season God will lead you to take an action. As you step out in faith and obey God, you will see the change set into motion. The big key here is adding action to your faith. Many people miss this part and they end up in cycles of delay. You can break delay, by adding action to your faith.
God has a new beginning for YOU. Apply these principles to your life today and watch the new beginning take place!
