He Is Making All Things New

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! | 2 Corinthians 5:17

There are many who are feeling as though they are “dying to their flesh,” experiencing intense stretching from a prolonged season that they have been in. People of God, I encourage you to remember the truth of the Father: death gives way to new life. Even the death of self that you are experiencing is giving way to new life: the life that God intends for you to have. As it says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”

Your pain has not been in vain. Indeed I tell you, the Lord has not been blind to your tears, nor deaf to your cries. The tears that you have cried have been watering and fertilizing the very ground from which your harvest will spring forth! As it is written, “Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds” (John 12:24).

Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.
As they pass through the Valley of Baka,
they make it a place of springs;
the autumn rains also cover it with pools.
They go from strength to strength,
till each appears before God in Zion (Psalm 84:5-7)

Be reminded that the Lord’s grace is sufficient for you, for His power is made perfect in weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). Though you feel weary from battle, the truth is that the Lord is strengthening you in this hour. Indeed, He is fortifying you, even now. The Lord is getting ready to take your very desert place—that which has been causing you the most pain and heartache—and turn it into a fruitful, lush field. It will become a place of abundant harvest!

God has been depositing much into you during this season, and you have grown and made amazing progress. Keep moving forward; do not look back. Be encouraged, and keep your hand to the plow. Lean into the Father during this time of transition, and allow His grace to carry you through this final stretch.

Once again I tell you, the tears of your intersession have been watering the harvest that you are about to come into. Watch, as it will spring forth suddenly! That which was barren is about to produce new life. Get ready, for He is about to make all things new, and beauty will rise out of the ashes.

To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair (Isaiah 61:3 NLT).

  1. I read you words and I can’t tell you how I look forward to them…we are in a difficult place and the Lord encourages me every time I read every single word you put to “paper”!!! My spirit is encouraged to go on another day trusting my beautiful Savior to help me continue to praise Him because I love Him and my life is his good or bad….I know He is with me and can’t wait to cast this mountain into the sea…and get on with God’s plans for us…we die daily and now the Lord will bring new life out of it all…
    I just wanted to thank you for your ministry ….and all that I am receiving from our Father…be blessed abundantly in all you

      I have been in a long season of waiting upon the Lord. I believe that now is the time God is making all things new. I sense the heart of God in you, so please continue to speak whatever the Lord says to you. You have been a true blessing to me.

    Dear Angie, bless you for your most timely confirmation. For the past few months the Lord truly has been calling his body to die to this wicked flesh. I’ve been standing on Romans 13:14. Put on the Lord Jesus Christ and make no provision for the flesh. It’s so exciting to wait for His promises to walk in HIS Purpose for our lives. We are now living in the most exciting times ever!!! BLESS YOU for your obedience in sharing His heart!!
