5 Day Devotional / NEW ROADS, NEW RIVERS

DAY 5: Stand in Awe and Be Amazed!     


This year, I believe God is declaring over your life:

“Behold, stand in awe and be amazed. God is going to give you a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”

Can you see something new and miraculous in your life? Do you believe it? Do you expect it? Can you lay hold of it? Shall you not know it?

The big question is what is in you? What is in you right now? What dreams and desires, hopes and miracles, prayers and petitions? It’s invisible and it’s unexplainable but it is born of God and the day is coming when it will spring up because God knows about it and declares it before it springs up.

2 Cor 5:17 testifies of the new thing that God has begun and is doing -

 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

Don’t underestimate the amazing things God has placed in you and what they can become when they spring forth. What are you beholding? The truth is that we become what we behold. If you are looking fully into His face then that is where the new and miraculous – the WOW - is going to come from. That is the place from where your ‘stand in awe and be amazed’ moments will come.

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Cor 3:18)

We are being changed from glory to glory.

Ecclesiastes reminds us that there is nothing new under the sun. That is why the only place that the new thing, transformation and supernatural moments come to pass is when we behold Him.

Remember as Christians, we walk by faith, not by what we see. You won’t find the new thing by looking at natural things “under the sun” but at supernatural things beyond and above in Jesus Name.

In your life, expect new roads of opportunity, new possibilities, unusual miracles, new horizons, pioneering again, places yet untouched. I believe God is opening up new heights from where you will have an amazing perspective. What you can conceive and believe, you can achieve.

“Look among the nations and watch— Be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days Which you would not believe, though it were told you. (Hab 1:5)

What is God doing across the earth right now? Do you want to be a part of it? Today is the day of the new road and the new river for your life. It is time to step into all the promises of God for you, trust in His ability to bring them to pass and - GO change your world!

All these new things are from God who brought us back to himself through what Christ Jesus did. And God has given us the privilege of urging everyone to come into his favor and be reconciled to him. (2 Cor 5:18 NLT)

Today I make the decision to behold Your face as I look to the future. Holy Spirit, I ask for the courage to represent Jesus to the world in all truth. I trust You to do new things in and through my life, and I pray that countless lives will be rescued and transformed through Your Church of which I am a part - in Jesus wonderful Name. Amen.
