“But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end;they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.’The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I will hope in him.’The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.” – Lam. 3:21-25
Every single day holds an opportunity for a fresh start. Don’t let the guilt of yesterday’s mistakes hold you down. Every morning when you wake up, God is ready with fresh grace, forgiveness, and love. Let’s look at 3 ways God gives a fresh start to your day:
I. FRESH OUTLOOK
One of the best ways that you can start off fresh is to spend time with God in the morning. Don’t hit the snooze button or resort to social media – choose instead to rest in God’s presence. Just spending a couple of minutes in prayer and reading a chapter from the Bible is huge. You’ll be amazed at how different your day will be when you start it seeking God!
II. FRESH PROVISION
God will be faithful to give you everything you need for the day ahead of you. Don’t rely on yesterday’s provision, because God wants to give you fresh grace, fresh joy, and fresh peace. Many people live from past victories or past experiences with God. The truth is, there is fresh life available to you every day.
III. FRESH MISSION
You don’t have to wander around your day without purpose. Every day you wake up God has given you an opportunity to change your world. When you go to work and have that meeting, God has a purpose for you. He’s called to bless your family, coworkers, and church. Every morning he refreshes your purpose and gives you a new outlook.
God has a big vision for your life, and He wants to use every day as a step to get there. Choose to have a fresh start, everyday.
