(Change The Old Order)
TO THE BIBLE: Isaiah 43:18-19
“Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
One of the main reasons why revisions, tests and exams are done in school is to see how well the students are learning. It’s equally important for you to review from time to time the way things are going with you personally, so you can determine the areas where you need to do things differently and make improvements. You can’t keep doing the same things the same way you’ve always done them, and expect different results.
Even God at some point, said “…I will do a new thing…” (Isaiah 43:19). He gave the Israelites strict laws to follow, which they couldn’t. He thundered at Mount Sinai and they ran away from Him in fear! Finally, He changed the order, and won us over with love.
So, get this straight today, if you want something different from what you’re experiencing now, you’ve got to take some drastic steps and do things differently. You’ve got to change the old way of thinking and employ new ideas. Perhaps you’ve been noted as being the tardy, lazy student, but now you want to make a new impression and get sterling remarks from your teacher. Then, you’ve got to change the old order. Start waking up earlier so you can be ready in time and arrive at school early. Give more time and attention to your tasks and assignments, and present them at the right time. Do these things consistently and it won’t be long before you start seeing remarkable results and getting fantastic commendations.
Proverbs 22:29; Isaiah 43:18-19 GNB
Dear Father, thank you for helping me identify those areas where I must make definite changes, as I chart my course of success and greatness. I commit myself to diligently following through with the decisions and plans you inspire me to make today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
