19 March - A Fresh Start

Neuroscience has discovered that every day we receive new baby neurons to use each day in a part of our brain called the Hippocampus. These neurons are for learning and forming new memories, and they connect to the rest of the neurons in our brain to help us look ahead and continually learn and develop.

God’s mercies really are new every morning, even in the makeup of our brains and the baby neurons in our brains are just another example of how He daily gives us the capacity for a fresh start. (Lamentations 3:22-23) If we choose to embrace the good and positive aspects of our day, learning from and leaving behind any of yesterday’s negative experiences, we can wake up every morning to a brand-new future. However, if we try to drag all the weights of our yesterday’s into today, we will run into trouble. You can’t “run and not grow weary” whilst carrying all the weight of yesterday. Plus, more often than not, we add to the weight with subsequent disappointments and failures. But God wants us to live totally free and unhindered from the past. He says, “Let my word and its promises wash you clean and renew you. Replace yesterday’s mistakes with my promises about the future.”

How we feel today is a sum of what we thought yesterday, and I encourage you to form thoughts upon what God says about your life.

Here are just a few of His promises to encourage you to look ahead to a brand new day: Cast all your cares and anxiety upon Jesus for He cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7)

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9) Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established”.(Proverbs 16:3) For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts”.(Isaiah 55:8-9)

“Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. (Luke 12:32) And I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6)

But one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13) Today, instead of looking behind, look ahead and form your future not on your past but on your hopes and dreams, on what Jesus has done for you, who He is and all He has promised!

Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for your promises. I can leave the past behind and look ahead knowing you go before me. I hold onto your promises and believe what you say about my future. In Jesus name Amen.
