“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland…” Isaiah 43:18-19
Guys (& girls), one simple word for you today. Let’s let God be God. Stop trying to “help him” see through the plan He ordained for your life. He will see it through, at His timing. All He requires from you is small steps of obedience.
The question is… Are you ready to move when God says move? Well, you better be coz He’s always doing a new thing. & the speed at which you move with Him will be determined (amongst other things), by how much baggage is weighing you down that you are trying to carry over from your previous seasons. Shed it off, and do some serious spring cleaning. Let’s leave all those past hurts in the past and step into this new season afresh. Forgive, forget & heal, for last season’s stench can stink up the new season if we bring it with us.
Reminds me of this song I used to love when I was young called “BAG LADY”
Bag lady you gon hurt your back * Dragging all them bags like that * I guess nobody ever told you * All you must hold on to * is you, is you, is you…
One day all them bags, gon get in your way * So… PACK LIGHT
Bag lady you gon miss your bus * You can’t hurry up * Cause you got too much stuff ….
You owe yourself a new beginning. Leave the baggage at the foot of the cross, take God’s hand and let Him guide you into your promised land. He is the author & the finisher of all… & this new thing He’s started in you, only He can see it through – with your cooperation. So, travel light!
