Plain and simple, you can NOT expect to feel something NEW if you’re doing the same OLD things! Now newness and freedom go hand in hand. Walking in the freedom Jesus Christ purchased for you, you have the right to try any new thing, as long as it is a GOOD thing that’s pleasing in the sight of God. Trying new things reminds us that we are indeed free but when we are stuck in the “same old same old” we feel BOUND or RESTRICTED.
Now answer this question for me: what are you afraid of? Even God does new things! God Himself tells us in Isaiah 43:18-19 (New King James Version), “Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.” Now if God said it surely you should believe it. He is plainly telling us that He will do a new thing and cause the dullness, dryness, and the very deserts of our lives to SPRING forth with life.
So whatever you’ve been wanting to do (big or small) just do it! It can be as small as trying a new food or hairstyle; or it can be as big as putting a business plan into motion, traveling to a new place, or giving love a try again. Whatever it is, if it’s PLEASING in the sight of God, you have the right to try it! I say it all the time and I’m still saying it on today because it’s true. You are free my friends. So live like it…FEEL FREE my friends FEEL FREE!
