That’s what God does. He always does something huge.
And so, as we stand, one foot in this new year, what new and big thing does He want to do in your life? What resolution have you started, that day two into it, you are already a little wishy-wash on? What life changing thing do God want to start right now, this instant, this moment? God is wanting to do something big. Listen to the words that were said by John the Baptist when he saw Jesus for the first time in John 1:29-30:
The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! This is he of whom I said, ‘After me comes a man who ranks before me, because he was before me.’
The Lamb of God that takes away the sins the world. Takes away the sins of the world. Takes away the sins the world.
That is what God longs to do, not just for me and for you, but for the entire world. Take away our sins. Start over. Start fresh. Begin again. Begin a new.
God wants to take away your sins. Do you really grasp that? In a world that remembers and holds onto and lets go, never forgives, God wants to take away your sins. And the sins of the world.
What is that something new that you can start in this new year? How about this? Let go. Let go.
Let Him do what He wants to do. Let Him take away your sins. Let Him let you start over.
Let’s try that
