Revelation 21:5 Everything New #168
Happy 2017! I hope you had a great time ringing in the New Year.
I love reading verses about the NEW that the Lord is doing. One of my favorites is Isaiah 43:18-19, but read how powerful Revelation 21:5 is, which says, “The one sitting on the throne said, “I am making everything new.” He said, “Write this: ‘These words are faithful and true.'”
Revelation 21 captures the new heaven, new earth and new Jerusalem. The talk of all the “new” follows Revelation 21:4 which says, “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death will not exist any more–or mourning, or crying, or pain, for the former things have ceased to exist.”
You might have ended 2016 with many tears, but God wants to wipe them away. Just as when he spoke these words, God is still “the one sitting on the throne.”He declared that he is “making everything new.” His desire is to redeem the tears, the pain, the hurt and the loss. God ends verse 5 by telling John to “write.” God wanted this promise written down because the words he speaks are absolutely always faithful and true.
God loves to make all things new: new life, new healing, new joys, new families and new love. He will make everything new. I hope you approach the new year with high expectations of God restoring everything in your life including healing your heart, your body, your mind and ultimately answering the desires of your heart and your long-awaited prayers.
