You’re Brand New Now…Ya Gotta Let Go Of Your Past!!

Standard

Isaiah 43:18-19

“Forget the former things;

do not dwell on the past. 

See, I am doing a new thing!

Now it springs up;

do you not perceive it?

I am making a way in the dessert

and streams in the wasteland.”

Brand new!!

Is that person in the mirror looking back at you?

It’s true!

But, you can’t see it…

‘Cause you’re stuck on what you’ve been through…

You got that white knuckle, red faced…

Kung fu grip on all your chains..

But, that’s not who are…

I’m here to let you know…

You gotta let it go…

You were made for something more…

So, come on…

And let it go!!

Tell me why…

You’d think that you deserve a life of just getting by…

You are alive!!!

Stop taking flowers to the grave of the old you that died…

If God can take your sin and free ya…

Forget, just like amnesia…

Why are you holding on?

I’m here to let you know…

You gotta let it go…

You were made for something more…

So, come on…

And let it go!!

Let it go!

Lessons From Noah’s Ark!

Standard

“Everything I Need To Know…I Learned From Noah’s Ark!”

(I saw this on e-mail today, author unknown, I added the Scriptures)

Genesis 5:32-10:1

6-12-13 Sunset-Rainbow 007

1.  Don’t miss the boat!  Find favor with the Lord! 

“But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.”

2.  Remember that we’re all in the same boat!  We need to walk faithfully with our Lord! 

Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time,

and he walked faithfully with God.”

3.  Plan ahead!  Pay attention to God!  It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark. 

So God said to Noah,

‘I am going to put an end to all people,

for the earth is filled with violence because of them.

I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth…. 

Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights,

and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.’”

4.  Stay fit and healthy! When you’re 60+ years old,  God may ask you to do something really big, too! 

So make yourself an ark of cypress wood...

I am going to bring flood waters on the earth

to destroy all life under the heavens,

every creature that has the breath of life in it. 

Everything on earth will perish.

5.  Don’t listen to critics!  Obey God!  Just get on with the job that He says needs to be done. 

Noah did everything just as God commanded him.”

6.  Build your future on the higher ground of the Lord! 

“But I will establish My covenant with you,

and you will enter the ark—

you and your sons and your wife and your sons’ wives with you…” 

The Lord then said to Noah,

“Go into the ark,

you and your whole family,

because I have found you righteous in this generation.”

7.  For safety’s sake, travel in pairs. 

You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures,

male and female,

to keep them alive with you. 

Two of every kind of bird,

of every kind of animal

and of every kind of creature

that moves along the ground

will come to you to be kept alive.”

8.  Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.

“Pairs of clean and unclean animals,

of birds and of all creatures

that move along the ground,

male and female,

came to Noah and entered the ark,

as God had commanded Noah.”

9.  When you’re stressed, float awhile. 

For forty days

the flood kept coming on the earth,

and as the waters increased

they lifted the ark high above the earth. 

The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth,

and the ark floated on the surface of the water.”

10.  Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.  Build your life according to God’s Plan! 

This is how you are to build it: 

The ark is to be three hundred cubits long,

fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high. 

Make a roof for it,

leaving below the roof an opening one cubit high all around. 

Put a door in the side of the ark

and make lower, middle and upper decks.”

11.  No matter the storm, when you’re with God, there’s always a rainbow waiting. 

And God said,

‘This is the sign of the covenant

I am making between Me and you

and every living creature with you,

a covenant for all generations to come: 

I have set my rainbow in the clouds,

and it will be the sign of the covenant

between Me and the earth.

Whenever I bring clouds over the earth

and the rainbow appears in the clouds,

I will remember My covenant between Me and you

and all living creatures of every kind. 

Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.

Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds,

I will see it

and remember the everlasting covenant

between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth…'”

“Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and,

taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds,

he sacrificed burnt offerings on it. 

The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma

and said in His heart:

‘Never again will I curse the ground because of humans,

even though every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood.

And never again will I destroy all living creatures,

as I have done.

As long as the earth endures…'”

Great God Almighty…Rock ‘n Roll For Your Soul!!

1 Corinthians 15:22

“For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.”

I just can’t believe
Where my life was at
All that I know is that my heart was broken
And I don’t ever wanna go back

Ain’t no explanation
How I saw the light
He found me and set me free
And it brought me back to life

Blame it on the transformation
Changed down to the core
His love is real
And I can’t sit still
‘Cause my name’s not shamed no more

Great God Almighty, gonna change this
Great God Almighty, He gonna change me

You gotta shake, shake, shake
Like you’re changed, changed, changed
Brand new looks so good on you
So shake like you’ve been changed

Come on and shake, shake, shake like you changed
Shake, shake, shake like you changed

Maybe He came to you
When everything seemed fine
Or maybe your world was upside down and hit you right between the eyes
No matter when it happened
At 7 or 95
Move your feet ’cause you are free
And you’ve never been more alive

Great God Almighty, gonna change me
Great God Almighty, He gonna change me
Great God Almighty, gonna change me
Great God Almighty, He gonna change me

Matthew 18:3

And He said:

“Truly I tell you,

unless you change and become like little children,

you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”
