Leave the old

Devotional:


You want to know the scariest part about transitioning? Walking into something completely new and cutting off all ties to the past. You’d think the new would bring great joy, but it honestly brings the human mind much anxiety.


During the Great Exodus, we experienced the great pain transition can cause. With so much fear concerning the new, the Israelites began to hunger for the old again. Because the new was something God desired for them, and not them for themselves, their perception was tainted. Though Canaan would be their "more than enough", they couldn't get themselves to renew their mind to embrace that new.


Are you finding yourself in the same place? Have you grown so accustomed to the old, you don’t even desire the new? If that’s the case, know that this is an area that needs your attention. If you want what God has for you, it will require a perspective shift on your behalf. This isn’t like the last time because the last time it was you deciding what would happen next. Just like with Israel, God Himself has crafted this new for you. Because it’s Him doing the acting, all you need to do is trust that everything will work out for your good.


I know it may be hard, and honestly no transition is easy. But this time you have the great El Shaddai on your side. You aren’t walking into this or through this alone. God Himself is ahead of you. As hard as it may be, it’s time for you to leave the old.


Scripture(s) Meditation:


“Then they said to Moses, “Because there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you so dealt with us, to bring us up out of Egypt? Is this not the word that we told you in Egypt, saying, ‘Let us alone that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than that we should die in the wilderness.””

‭‭Exodus‬ ‭14‬:‭11‬-‭12‬ ‭NKJV‬‬


““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.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭43‬:‭18‬-‭19‬ ‭NKJV‬‬


Reflection Question(s): We invite you to discuss below.


What does your old look like? How about the new? What is keeping your mind stuck in the old and from embracing the new? What can you do to shift your perception?

FURTHER REVELATION


ABBA RECENTLY REVEALED TO ME TO ALWAYS BE JOYFUL AND GRATEFUL… HE HAS ALWAYS DONE SOMETHING, IS ALWAYS DOING SOMETHING, AND IS ALWAYS GOING TO DO SOMETHING (WITH RESPECT TO MY JOURNEY).


MEANING, I JUST CAME OUT OF A SEASON (EGYPT), AM IN A SEASON (WILDERNESS), AND AM GOING INTO A SEASON (PROMISED LAND). AND THIS STATEMENT WILL ALWAYS BE TRUE AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT.


  • FOR EXAMPLE… IF I JUST LEFT A FINANCIAL EGYPT THEN I AM NOW IN A FINANCIAL WILDERNESS. IF I JUST LEFT A RELATIONAL (RELATIONSHIPS) WILDERNESS, THEN I AM NOW IN A RELATIONAL PROMISED LAND.


THUS, I HAVE TO LEARN TO BE ACCUSTOMED TO BALANCING TRIALS/HARDSHIPS WITH REST/JOY.


SCRIPTURES


PSALMS 30:5, PHILIPPIANS 4:8

Last fall my apostle told my sister and I that this will be the last time we live together. Although I've been wanting my own place there are things that kept me worried about finding my own place, but as I am trying to keep my faith, my sister is talking about "we" in this next season (October the lease is renewed) as easy as it would be I am trying to keep faith that God will work out the thing that is keeping me from having my own place. 🙏🏾 Love your TikTok

My old looks like repeating cycles. My old looks like being naive about people that I know didn't want the best for me but only came around because of their benefit. My old looks like me people pleasing to be validated, by them all for them to turn around and betray me. My New Looks like a taking a stand for Jesus. Setting healthy boundaries for myself and my children. My new also looks like being about my Fathers business and not giving in to temptation or distractions. My new looks like moving forward with no regrets knowing that God works All things together for my Good!!!! What was keeping my mind stuck in the old, and from embracing the…
