As we are about to begin a new year, many are making resolutions. List of goals. Things they are wishing to accomplish in this new year.
The word new means something that is experienced for the first time. Some synonyms of new are different, unfamiliar, unknown, and strange.
So in this new year, why not declare something different. Something that is unfamiliar and unknown by the world. Something that just seems strange to everyone else.
A new heart.
A new outlook.
A new spirit.
Ezekiel 36:26-27 says that the Lord “will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I [the Lord] will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.”
In this new year, why not ask the Lord to give you a new heart? A new outlook of life.
