"Stop dwelling on past events and brooding over times gone by; I am doing something NEW! It's springing up – can't you see it? I am making a road in the desert, rivers in the wasteland" - Isaiah 43"19.
A new thing can be happening, but in the midst of a beginning we can fail to perceive the change. Remember, an END always precedes a beginning. Therefore, the question becomes this: "How are we reacting when an END comes and a NEW BEGINNING starts?"
In all of our situations, circumstances, and endings, we need to let a worship posture be exhibited. This will move the heart of God and release a change in the atmosphere around us.
When it's time for the NEW our FOCUS should be: "Am I PREPARED to wait until a full manifestation occurs?"
To EVALUATE all new beginnings, ask yourself these questions:
1. Is the situation or circumstance you find yourself in causing you to question God's heart and love toward you and making you RESIST your new beginning?
2. Is the enemy using your reaction to stop you from moving into God's best?
3. Are you attempting to move in a way that Holy Spirit is developing checks in your spirit?
4. Is the situation or circumstance that is happening in your life initiating a chain of events leading to a new beginning? Sometimes one event in your life is a catalyst for many other things. Perhaps you have not seen the end of the thing that has begun to get you to your new place!
5. Is your situation or circumstance creating an offense that keeps you from advancing?
DAY 1: Read and memorize John 14:12-13. "Ask anything in MY NAME and I will do it!" Stop and celebrate over these verses. We must see a manifestation of the Lord and His Glory in our midst so we can see our future. To manifest means to reveal or cause something to shine or illuminate. The Lord is saying, "I will cause your way to shine!"
Rejoice each day as you speak this word forth into your atmosphere. Read these verses three times a day. Don't stop at your last blessing, but keep looking for new manifestations of God's blessings in your life. Break any mindset that says, "This is all there is. I cannot see the Lord blessing me in new ways!"
DAY 2: Read Matthew 24:32-36. Watch the NEW BUD that is coming forth! See what the fig tree teaches! How will what has dried up and not blossomed in the past begin to bear new fruit in your life? List on a sheet of paper what you wish to see blossom in your life. Review what has dried up and ask the Lord to show you a new "bud." Also read Isaiah 35 and Haggai 2. Be willing to be shaken and pressed so the latter glory will be greater than the former. Feel the weight and pressing of His glory that will produce the oil for your future.
DAY 3: Read Psalm 92. Declare that a new anointing will begin to manifest in you in the next several months. A nine month process is necessary for the olive tree to blossom, for its harvest to mature, and to be harvested for the production of oil. Decree that this month your blossoming begins. Expect the pressing and pouring out of your new anointing. Rejoice over the Latter Glory.
"That the God our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and REVELATION in the knowledge of him: the eyes of your understand being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritances in the saints." - Ephesians 1:17-18
Your anointing begins to be produced in a new way. Beware of falling into religious structures; trust for an anointing to come forth that will overthrow all old structures that have stopped you in the past. Memorize and meditate on Isaiah 10:27.
Fill your atmosphere with praise and seek the Lord for His blessing and receive a spirit of revelation -- revelation creates the entry way for your next occasion -- digest new revelation, and receive a new anointing.
"Behold, the former things have come to pass,
And new things I declare;
Before they spring forth I tell you of them."
Colossians 1:10 - "That you may walk (live and conduct yourselves) in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him and desiring to please Him in all things, bearing FRUIT in every good work and STEADILY GROWING AND INCREASING in and by the knowledge of God [with fuller, deeper, and clearer insight, acquaintance, and recognition]."
