WEEKLY DEVOTION – March 21, 2021
“A New Thing”
I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.
The promise of God for the people of the covenant recorded in Isaiah 31:31-34, is a refreshing reminder of our new possibilities through faith. The promise of a new covenant with historical and spiritual meaning is a blessing.
This covenant will be more than an external religious system, ritual or doctrine. This covenant will be in the hearts and minds of those who trust in the Lord and receive his word. This promise was for Israel and it has become your promise and mine through Jesus Christ. Not only is God’s law in our minds and hearts, but God is also in us and we have received the abundant life.
Let the promises of God’s word become your promise of new things, rich blessings and spiritual fulfillment.
Dear Almighty God, thank you for the life you give us, and new things meant especially for us through faith in Jesus Christ. Amen
