You don’t wait for a change; you create the change that you desire. Most people claim that they are waiting, not knowing that they are wasting away. Waiting without doing something is wasting without knowing! The longer you wait doing nothing, the more failure overtakes you. If God was waiting for a change, heaven and earth would not be in existence today. You have waited long enough, start doing something!
“… The earth was without form, and void… and the Spirit of God moved…” God is a mover. The earth was without form and void but He didn’t watch it. The Spirit of God moved and in that movement, creation resulted. Without a movement there cannot be a move.
Every move is initiated by someone! You have sat down and folded your hands long enough; you have prayed long enough, it is time to move! From now, you are receiving a release of the power of God to make you move forward!
I believe the reason God created days, weeks, months and years is for demarcation, so that we can have the opportunity of a fresh start, to change or improve on the previous.
God is a God of new beginnings, every waking day, He gives us the opportunity to push the mistakes and failures of yesterday behind us and embrace the bright future that is set before us. Why do we have the night? It is so that you can sleep over the failure of the day, and wake up with a refreshed mind for greater achievements. Why do you have the sun rising every 24 hours? It is to give you hope that you are face to face with a new opportunity. Why do we have a new year 12 months? It is to close the chapter of the previous year and open a new one.
At every new beginning, God is simply saying to you, “Forget the past and create something new”. So, if you enter a new day, New Year or new phase of your life with the mentality of the past, you are only cheating yourself. Your future is ahead of you, it’s up to you to start creating a new beginning.
No matter how bad your past has been, there can be a new beginning for you! There are people whose lives and businesses were emptier than yours, but they are now employers of labor. The fact that you are sleeping on a mat today does not mean that the end has come for you. There was a time I slept on a bench (arm-chair) for months, but I am no longer there. The story is different now because I was determined to find a way out and create a new beginning in my life.
Until you create a new beginning for yourself, your life remains in chaos and confusion. Have you ever asked yourself, why is everybody NOT affected by global economic recess? Why are some businesses or churches increasing while others are diminishing? The difference is that some are creating a way out of no way, while others have accepted their circumstances as the end of the road.
You may see failure all around you, but don’t let it get to you. You can create a new beginning for yourself. Stop wishing for a wonderful job, create one for yourself! Rather than fold your hands, waiting for that crisis in your home to stop on its own, you can create the sweet home that you desire. You can’t afford to wait for accidental occurrences, rise up and put an end to failure in your life! Create the success that you desire!
You determine your beginning! A new beginning also means turning a season of emptiness and dependence into that of productivity and relevance. Life begins with what you are able to offer to your world, so you have no right to talk of your beginning if you have nothing to show for your existence. Your actual beginning is when you have something to show forth to your world. There is a difference between existence and beginning. Something existed before God created the heaven and the earth, but the former was of no relevance because it was void. It was only after God had turned it into a place of relevance through His creativity that the Bible said, “In the beginning…” That means, your beginning does not necessary commence at birth. The birth of a child is his entrance into the world, but as he grows up, he defines his own beginning through his effect. Each person determines his beginning in life. Jesus was born, but it was not until after 30years that He had a beginning. In John 2:11closeJohn 2:11 11 This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory. And his disciples believed in him. (ESV) closeJohn 2:11closeJohn 2:11 11 This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory. And his disciples believed in him. (ESV) 11 This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory. And his disciples believed in him. (ESV) , the Bible says: “This beginning of miracle did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory…” That means Jesus only has a beginning when He had something to show forth. Never mistake an existence for a beginning. So many have existed for 60 chronological years but are yet to begin living.
May be you are a young person reading this article and you are still living with your parents at age 25 or more. You even get angry when they don’t provide food for you. For your information, you have been left behind! There are many millionaires today, who are younger than you, yet they are not thieves or dupes, they labored to make a way out of no way, fighting every adversity on their ways to create a life of relevance for themselves! Stop merely existing; you too can create a beginning for yourself! The greatest problem facing many people who find themselves on the ground is the thought of how or where to begin again. Some feel there are no use trying and others believed it is too late, so they settle with failure. But it may interest you to know that God called Abraham at age 75, when it looked as if the greater part of his life was gone. God gave him a new beginning. So, it is never too late or impossible to have a new beginning in life.
