Newness of Life

Romans 6:4
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Have you ever wondered why some people left you high and dry? Have you ever felt like great and bad things were happening to you and at the same time? Have you ever lost something or someone and couldn't understand what was actually going on in your life?

Well, I wanna let you know that God is giving you newness of life. God is doing a new thing in your life right now. God is positioning you because it's time to walk in a new season of life. It may be summer in the physical world...but fall in your natural life. There is a shedding of some things that were near and dear to your heart. God is removing everything you depended on outside of Him. God is taking you to a new level of growth and maturity in Him. These are the times where we seek God the hardest because we want answers. You wanna know what's next, and you know that there has to be more to life than what you're seeing right now.

My brother or sister, you're in a great place because God is putting pressure on you to keep you moving forward. Why? Because there is purpose in you and the more comfortable you are, the less you'll push to go further. So my word for you is don't question God. He's growing you up and giving you NEWNESS of LIFE. Embrace it and continue to worship Him and seek His face. Your life was already predestined and your steps are already ordered...but you have to seek Him so He can give you the next step for your life. He doesn't give it to you all at once. This is a faith journey and process. When you can't see your way, just keep following the ONE who is THE WAY.

Yes, they hurt you. Yes he/she left you. Yes your back is against the wall. Yes, they lied on you and lied to you. Yes, you have more bills than money. Yes, you have to cry yourself to sleep. Yes, you're afraid and can't trust anyone. Yes, things didn't go as planned. But God is with you every step. Walk into your new season. Let Go of dead weight and be free. It's your time.

God Bless You and Be Encouraged,
