TOPIC: A Whole New Beginning with God
SCRIPTURE: Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:18-19.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God proves Himself at the beginning of new phases of life.
I welcome you to the first day of this new month of September 2021. We thank God for His faithfulness in our lives from the beginning of the year till date.
In this new month, God is going to give you a new beginning in life. You might have lost many privileges and opportunities but God is ready to give you a fresh beginning for a total recovery and restoration in Jesus’ Name.
The Scripture makes it clear that we serve the God of new beginnings (Gen. 1:1). We serve the God of new things (Isa. 43:19). He is the God who proves Himself at the beginning of new phases and seasons of life. o
Now, we shall look at Scriptural examples of the places where God proved Himself as the God of new beginnings.
1. At Creation (Gen. 1:1-3).
Before creation, the earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. Everything was disorganised and stood still. And in that condition, God stepped into the scene and began to work. This made the earth to experience a new beginning.
2. In the life of Samson.
When Samson played himself into the hands of his enemies, they shaved off the seven locks of his head (Judges 16:18-19). The Scripture makes it clear that the hair of his head began to grow again after he was shaven (Judg. 16:22). Thus God gave Samson a new beginning.
Beloved, God might have done certain things in your life before but you lost them. You might have reached a great height in life before, but suddenly, you crashed. I decree today that the God of new beginnings will give you a new beginning; He will cause your life to blossom again, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember This: God proves Himself at the beginning of new phases of life.

QUOTE: There is a relationship between prayer and a new beginning – the beginning of a year, a marriage, a career, a business or whatever it may be. Culled from “PRINCIPLES AND POWER OF PRAYER” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Ezekiel 22-24
REFLECTION: God never runs out of new things. He never runs out of news. But He can only give or do what man sees. What do you see? What is your vision?
PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: I decree that the God of new beginnings is doing something new in your life in this season in Jesus’ Name.
