SPRING FORTH NOW
Leave Babylon, flee from the Babylonians! Announce this with shouts of joy and proclaim it. Send it out to the ends of the earth; say, “The Lord has redeemed his servant Jacob.” They did not thirst when he led them through the deserts; he made water flow for them from the rock; he split the rock and water gushed out.
Isaiah 48:20-21 (NIV)
Receive New Life by moving on from the old. If you continue to give permission to yourself and your space to operate the way you have always operated, you will continue to get what you always have gotten. Therefore, if you are to Receive New Life you must let go of the old; letting go of the old is a challenge that will impact us physically, emotionally, and spiritually, however, can be met because God has always been faithful, even in our new. To combat the challenge we must Breathe: New Life; cultivate our atmosphere so that it supports the preparation and/or actually living in the new life; inhaling what supports new life and exhaling what does not. The Lord has paid for us, redeemed us with the sacrifice of Jesus His Son, so that you and I can live in the newness of life, be resurrected from the old, and live in the new. Your new is not just defined as new but the pathway, the next level, the ordered steps of God for your life and life more abundantly. We cannot expect to continue in Babylon and live in the fullness of what God has promised for our land flowing with milk and honey, we must first let go of Babylon, in our hearts and thus our minds and spirit will follow. The transformation of our hearts leads to the renewing of our minds, empowering, from within - the Spirit, to act in ways that move us from Babylon to our next level of experiencing our land flowing with milk and honey, our promises!
