Our cry for a fresh experience of God is at the core of being open to believe for something NEW.
Brick by brick, life by life, God is creating a kingdom, a "spiritual house" (1 Peter 2:5).
The Holy Spirit gives assignments to people, "to each according to each one's uinique ability (Matthew 25:15). As He calls, He equips. To discover this assignment we must be open to something NEW.
We have an uncommon call to an uncommon life. "The Spirit has given each of us a special way of serving others" (1 Corinthinas 12:7). We are to "Kindle afresh the gift of God which is in you" (2 Timothy 1:6)
We have build up in our reasoning faculties lots of support for not being convinced that NEW things can happen, even if we deeply want them to.
Newness is always possible to those who believe--I must believe God is working a NEW work in me.
New things require a NEW language. Our self talk draws us closer or drives us further from experiencing NEW things.
I kindle afresh the gift of God which is in me.
I have an uncommon call to an uncommon life.
Things have never been the way they are going to be because God is doing a NEW thing in me.
My New Language
Since I am engrafted in Christ, I am a new creature altogether; old things are passed away; behold all things are become NEW. (II Cor 5:17)
When I was baptized I went into the tomb with Him and joined Him in death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the Fathers glory, I too might live a NEW life. (Romans 6:4).
I am not conformed to this world; but I am transformed by the
re-NEWING of my mind; that I might know the will of God – what is good, and is pleasing to Him and is perfect. (Romans 12:2) .
My speech demonstrates the power of God’s spirit it my life.
(1 Cor 2:4)
I have put off the old man and put on the NEW man, which is
re-NEWED in the knowledge after the image if Him that created me. (Col 3:10)
I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and His incomparable great power for us who believe. (Ephesians 1:18,19).
Christ in me is the hope of glory. (Colossians 1:27)
Since Christ is in me, I have the power to help others with their spiritual needs. Galatians 1:16).
