What the Bible Says About New Beginnings
Have you been a Christian for a while? Have you made some errors in judgment that led to sin? Do you know what the Bible says about new beginnings? There are many places in the Bible where new beginnings happen. God blesses starting over.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17. NIV
Many times, in the Old Testament, we have seen men and women of renown fall to sinful desires. For example, David lusted after another man’s wife, had her husband killed, and got her pregnant, but when he repented sincerely, God forgave him.
He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him Psalm 40:3. NIV
The Psalms are full of praise and singing NEW songs to God! When you find yourself in a scary new place, sing a new song of praise to our God! Praise is our weapon against the enemy and fear. Whenever the enemy makes you think you can’t start over with God, you just remember how much mercy and love our God has for his children. There is nothing you can do, short of turning your back completely on God, that is unforgivable. And I promise if you ever say “I can’t be forgiven for this” you’re wrong.
God’s love is unconditional. We only have an idea of what that means. It’s almost like a reflection in the water. We see the reflection of unconditional love, but God is the unconditional love perfected. That’s why we have such a problem with new beginnings. Unconditional love is so rare that we think God can’t possibly be able to forgive us. Well, that’s where the God Factor comes into play. God is transcendental and exists beyond our comprehension. That’s why He embodies His characteristics. He gave the Israelites many new beginnings. Jesus told those who sinned greatly to go and sin no more. The Father and the Son both forgive and offer a new beginning.
And he who was seated on the throne said, Behold, I am making all things new. Also, he said, Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true. Revelation 21:5. NIV
