Worship Oct. 2019 / Nov. 2019:
We are now in the month of Cheshvan 5780. Every month holds a blessing for us as we focus on God’s intention and appointed seasons for our lives. You choose either to neglect this focus or be energized by it.
This is a bitter month if you refuse to change your perspective on things. You will remain bitter until this season comes back around next year. If you direct your attention to transforming the bitter events and circumstances of your past to sweet ones, this month will be a major blessing for your life. Within the bitter, the sweet hides, but will you find it, receive it and enjoy the blessing it affords?
Cheshvan is the month by which God turned the darkness of man to light. In this month we see Noah walked with God by obeying all his commands. God chose Noah to turn the bitter into sweet. The flood produced a new world of light because Noah and his family obeyed God. The flood uprooted evil so new life could begin. Noah preserved the seed of the Messiah. Jesus makes all of this possible for us. It is through his grace and strength that we can do all things.
Will you get into the ark, which symbolizes a covenant relationship with Jesus Christ so the bitterness of your life will turn sweet? Only through seeing life the way God does will you be able to walk in a new world of light and blessing. This world is the realm of the Spirit.
God wants you to forget the past that shames you and makes you bitter to grab a hold of what He wants to give you. The question remains will you obey Him?
A new beginning is yours as you like Noah walk with God. You can only walk with God by walking in the Spirit. Will you die to your flesh to rise in the Spirit? New life comes when your old life dies. In Christ alone are you a new creation. The old man thrives in the flesh but the new man lives in the pure realm of the spirit. The new man sees by the Spirit, which gives life and peace, but the old man can only see in the flesh, which is death and destruction. Now is the time to come out of your old world into the new. The death of the previous order gives rise to new potential for growth.
I declare failure is not falling down, but staying down. For though righteous men fall seven times, they rise again. I put off my old man, which belongs to my destructive past. I am renewed in the spirit of my mind. I put on the new man, created in Christ Jesus after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness. Lord Jesus, thank you for the sweet life that I find only in you.
For All You've Done
Come Holy Spirit
