TITLE: FREE YOURSELF FROM THE BURDEN OF GUILT
TEXT: ISAIAH 43:18-21 KJV
(18) Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
(19) Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
(20) The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen.
(21) This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.
KEY VERSE: PSALM 103:12
As far as the east is from the west, so far does He remove our transgressions from us.
Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
The sense of being renewed each day, and the hope which this brings, is so much part of living with Me. How often you have been aware of being saved from the consequences of your own foolishness and selfishness. Of being lifted clear of those consequences to a place where you can almost hear Me saying, “Yes, you can start again!”
My child, My forgiveness makes new. My peace makes new. All other “renewal” from earthly sources is limited and conditional upon so many things. My renewal is your birthright as a trusting child, growing in the knowledge of My way. There is a new factor in relationships, a new factor in long-standing problems when I am allowed to enter. Nothing is more precious for you, personally than the new beginnings without number, which you can enjoy; new beginnings which steadily reduce those times of failure. New beginnings shorten, drastically, the effects of the failures which do occur!
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Genuine repentances lead to a new relationship with God.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Lord prepare me, a sanctuary, pure and holy, tried and proved…
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Ecclesiastes 1-3; 2 Corinthians 9
