“I am the Lord, your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King…Thus says the Lord…Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” —Isaiah 43:15-16,19
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.” —2 Corinthians 5:17-18
When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see imperfections, inadequacies, past mistakes or hurts? Or do you see yourself as one completely and lavishly loved by God? He has reconciled us to Himself in Jesus. We are a new creation in Christ.
I love this quote by Elisabeth Elliot:
“If you dwell on your own feelings about things rather than dwelling on the faithfulness, the love, and the mercy of God, then you’re likely to have a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Our feelings are very fleeting and ephemeral, aren’t they? We can’t depend on them for five minutes at a time. But dwelling on the love, faithfulness, and mercy of God is always safe.” —Elisabeth Elliot
Walk in the truth of who God is and who you are in Christ Jesus!
Rejoicing in Him!
