As the rains are replenishing my garden, I pray that God's spiritual rain revive and renew my spirit
“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new person; the old life is past. A new life has begun.” (2 Cor 5:17)
The new life which we experience in Christ is so enriching and perfect that we become a new person in Him. This does not always mean that our old thought patterns and behaviours disappear automatically. What it does mean is that from God’s point of view we’ve been forgiven – He sees us as new beings. And by the might of the Holy Spirit we obtain the necessary power to bring total changes in every aspect of our lives.
During the past six weeks lots of rain has fallen, and continues to fall, on the Free State. In fact, many parts of South Africa have been blessed with abundant rain. As the earth has been washed clean and the countryside is verdant and lush, it's the perfect opportunity to be cleansed spiritually. Thank God for His mercy and bounty for giving you a new beginning.
May God bless you as you seek His will in your life.
