Embrace New Changes

by Hazel Straub

The season in which we find ourselves is one of change. No longer business as usual, treading well-worn paths and living in the status quo. Instead we experience new challenges in new unfamiliar settings with new relationships. Life, as we knew it, is gone. We are going over to the other side of the mountain to live, in an unfamiliar setting, where God is in control not us.

God tells us to let the past go and not to hang on to old victories, ways of thinking, grudges, and habits. He is doing something new and it requires letting go of toxic thought patterns, unforgiveness, regrets and living the familiar comfortable way. No longer coping as a survivor, but thriving in abundant life. When you let it all go, there is room for new relationships, new life in unfamiliar places and blessings you could not imagine. It is time for new beginnings, seeing new rivers flowing in the former desert and exploring new paths you would not have considered earlier.

Embrace the new and leave the past in the past!

“Stop dwelling on the past.
    Don’t even remember these former things.
I am doing something brand new, something unheard of.
    Even now it 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 TPT)

  1. This is why there is a verse that tells you that entering into the kingdom of heaven is through being reborn with water and spirit…
    The indirect meaning or hidden meaning is rebirth and revival and renewal of character and motivation To be better …( water symbolizes purification , watering living beings to multiply , reproduce and give birth into new emerging living being whether plants , animals or humans …) This is a metaphoric and figurative expression as well as Christian faith …


    • It is important to leave the past behind so you can embrace what God has for you today.
      Too many times, we cling to the old and miss what God has for us through Christ Jesus!
      We die to our fleshly nature and come to new life through Jesus!


  2. Amen! I feel like you’re speaking to me, thank you for the ministration

  3. Amen! With His leading, and for His glory alone, my soul strives to follow a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson . . .

    “Don’t go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” . . . for others to follow to Him.

    Be Blessed!
