Have you ever lost anything into the bowels of your computer? Oh boy, this week I had most of these December devotionals written. When I went to retrieve them, the computer had digested them into oblivion.
I spent too much time looking for them. Finally, I just started over. Sometimes that’s the only way to deal with electronics. Just start it over.
In life, starting over is too often the easy way out. A new spouse will turn out to be just like the old one; because you are the same old you.
A new job with come with the same complications; because you are the same old you. And who are you, exactly?
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! (2 Corinthians 5:17, NIV)
God promises that we are new but it takes time to change fully, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Where are you in your newness?
Prayer- Oh God, don’t let us take the easy way out of honest, truthful, Godly living. Amen.
