Get Ready for the New

Saturday, May 11, 2013


ďAnd no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined.Ē
(Luke 5:37, NIV)

TODAYíS WORD from Joel and Victoria

Are you ready for a new chapter in your life? Sometimes, in order to move forward into the blessing God has for you, you have to be willing to let go of the old. The things that are behind you are not nearly as important as what is out in front of you. Itís time to get ready for the new!

You may have had some unfair things happen, things that you donít understand; but let me tell you, you have come too far to stop now. Instead of allowing those things to hold you back, why donít you let go and take a step of faith into the new? Itís time to get a new, bigger vision; itís time to get a new, fresher outlook; itís time to rise up with a new attitude! Instead of settling where you are, pick up and move forward. Have the attitude that says, ďI may not understand it; it may not have been fair, but I am not getting stuck on this page. I know God has a new chapter for me ó a chapter filled with blessings, favor and victory!Ē


Father, thank You for Your faithfulness in my life. Today, I choose to trust You with my past, present and future. Give me wisdom to discern the seasons of my life and teach me to embrace the new things You have in store for me in Jesusí name. Amen.

ó Joel & Victoria Osteen

    Thank you and this message has real world importance for those of us on our journey to healthier lifestyles. Sometimes we have to give up the OLD clothes that are getting baggy, the old ways that are getting in the way of our NEW chapters that God has planned for us.
