28 December 2022 ‘I am doing a new thing…do you not perceive it?’ Isaiah 43:19 NIV

Our lives will eventually show what we continually keep in the front of our minds. Paul says, ‘We have the mind of Christ’ (1 Corinthians 2:16 NIV), and creativity and vision are part of the package. A blind man asked St Anthony, ‘What could be worse than losing your sight?’ He replied, ‘Losing your vision.’ And a respected author added, ‘Maybe you’re not experiencing God’s best because your vision needs to be improved. You say, “I have problems…I’m in debt…I’m lonely.” Don’t let that image take root. Paint a new picture…See yourself stronger and healthier…rising higher…accomplishing your dreams…let the image of victory take hold. Get it on the inside…[Remind yourself] of these scriptural truths: “I can do all things through Christ” (Philippians 4:13 KJV); “This is the day the Lord has made” (Psalm 118:24 NKJV); “We are more than conquerors through [Christ]” (Romans 8:37 KJV); “God…always causes us to triumph in Christ” (see 2 Corinthians 2:14); “You bless the righteous; you surround them with your favour” (Psalm 5:12 NIVUK); “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life” (Psalm 23:6 NKJV).’ In Bible times wine was stored in leather wineskins, but as they aged, they lost their flexibility. New wine always needed new wineskins. And just like, ‘You can’t pour new wine into old wineskins’ (see Matthew 9:17), God can’t give us a new vision until we change the old images and attitudes we’re carrying around in our minds. God says, ‘I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?’ He’s ready to do something new in your life today. Are you ready to have a flexible mind that makes room for it?
