As I was doing my devotional the other day, I was completely blessed so I want to share it with you all. Here is the scripture that blessed me. Even though I have read it before, it has a new meaning this year.
Mark 2:21-22. It says, “No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; otherwise the
patch pulls away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear
results. No one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the wine
will burst the skins, and the wine is lost and the skins as well; but
one puts new wine into fresh wineskins.”
So what does this mean you ask? It means that in order to do what we are called to do, we can’t bring our old ideas and ways of doing things with us. God wants us to have new “wineskins” or mindset. We cannot come into new things this year with last years mindsets, old ways and habits. If there are some things that need to change in your life, you are the only one that has the power to change it. We must embrace those mindset changes and not resist them!
It is the old ways that keep us stuck in a rut. The old ways that you think about your job, money, business, children, significant other, YOURSELF have to leave! Now if some of those categories that I just meantioned need to change then do it! You can’t move yourself forward if there is a blockage holding you back.
Are you brave enough to make those changes necessary to move you forward this year or will 2013 be the same as 2012?
It is simply your choice. January isn’t over yet so there is PLENTY of time to say out with the old and in with the new. Don’t talk about it, be about it!
So what are you willing to do differently this year? Leave me a comment on this page or come find me on facebook and lets make 2013 the year that things changed for good!
