All Things New..

All Things New – UpWords – Week of Mar. 11-17

by Max Lucado

People often say, “You can be anything you want to be! Be a butcher, a sales rep if you like. An ambassador if you really care. You can be anything you want to be—if you work hard enough.” But can you? I wonder… if God didn’t pack within you the meat sense of a butcher; the people skills of a salesperson; or the world vision of an ambassador; can you be one? An unhappy, dissatisfied one perhaps. But a fulfilled one? No.

Can an acorn become a rose, or a whale fly like a bird? Absolutely not. You cannot be anything you want to be. But you can be everything God wants you to be!

“I make all things new” He declares in Revelation 21:5. He didn’t hand you your granddad’s bag or your aunt’s life. He personally and deliberately packed you. Live out of the bag God gave you!

Who Will You Serve Today?

We serve a mighty God who loves us with His everlasting love, Our God is Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, the Prince of Peace, the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, the Bright and Morning Star, the Fairest of Ten Thousand. He is Faithful and True, His Faithfulness is New Every Morning. Indeed our God is Great!

In whom will you serve today?

I join with Joshua 24:15 and say….

And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

My prayer for you my friend’s is that you will chose to serve the Lord with all your hearts….
