"Behold, I make all things New"

Then He who sat on the throne said,Behold, I make all things new.” 

[Revelation 21:5]

First Fruits First Day 1, 2020: Today marks the first day of the next year, the next decade, the rest of our lives. It’s a new beginning. Time to take stock of what we’ve learned, where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re going.

New Year’s Day is a pivot point. So much has transpired. So much is in process. So much is unknown. 

How do we view the upcoming season? Hope? Despair? Passion? Indifference?

The reality of life in the Kingdom of God is that every moment of our lives is in God’s hands. The ultimate question concerns whether we are willing to let Him decide what’s best for us.

This is not a sign of weakness. In fact, it’s a picture of great strength and confidence. The person with perfect peace is the one who has absolute trust in God.

We may face difficulties, but there is a Redeemer whose very purpose is to overcome every obstacle we face. His counsel is unfailing. Yeshua turns things around. He is our fresh start.

Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”

Do we have the genuine faith to let God make all things new? Are we willing to get out of the way and follow His lead? Will we observe, or will we behold? Observing is passive. Beholding is proactive. 

Behold means more than viewing. It means that we catch on to things, we comprehend their meaning, we respond to what’s going on, we grasp things through a deeper understanding. 

January 1, 2020 is Day 1. Today is a great day to Behold. Time to set our sets on Someone higher than ourself. 

Yeshua is willing. He is able. He is the Firstfruits of our Future. 

He is Alpha and Omega. He is the Beginning and one day will be the End.

Let’s allow our knowledge of the Holy One of Israel to become more than affirmation. Let’s start 2020 with a Vision for great things. Let’s Behold our King and begin to be proactive – to own and to declare the bright and radiant future given to us by God.

Now that’s a vision that is pleasing to God.

Let’s start today - First Fruits First, Day 1, 2020.
