“No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse. Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”
(Matthew 9:16-17 (NIV))
With all that we have faced this last year, many people feel hopeless. We have a great hope. We simply must be open and receptive to whatever God has planned. With the approaching new year, we must be prepared for whatever God sends to us that is new to our way of thinking. Just like the old wineskins that will burst if they attempt to hold new wine, our hearts will not contain what God has in store for us if we do not soften our hearts.
Look forward to the new year with much anticipation of what God can and will do. Whatever we may face, we must never forget who controls it all.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
(Romans 8:28 (NIV))
Are you prepared for what God is doing?
Happy New Year!
