Pressing forward into the New
This is a time of pressing forward in to the new creation. Letting old things pass away, we are to follow the new beginnings the Lord has spoken. All things become new. As the seeds planted in the past start to emerge, behold the new beginnings. For the time of rest is over, reset has come, now we emerge from our houses of prayer. Only do not be entangled with religion, nor unequally yoked with the unbeliever. For the just shall live by faith. Nurture the new born homes of God, and allow Him to take you on an exciting adventure.
(A prophetic word of encouragement for 2021. Please take it to the Lord Jesus Christ in prayer, and let that which is of Him remain).
For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again. Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (2 Corinthians 5:14-17)
Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:8-14)
