He Makes Everything New

He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

(Revelation 21:5 NIV)

The new year is a great reminder of the fact that God is in the business of making new things. From Genesis to Revelation, we see the Creator at work, creating new things – a new covenant (Jeremiah 31:31), new hearts (Ezekiel 36:26), new creatures (2 Corinthians 5:17), a new heaven and a new earth (Revelation 21:1), to list a few. A quick search on the word “new” in the Bible reveals numerous passages with a positive implication. Thankfully, we don’t have to wait until we get to the book of Revelation to hear God’s declaration of making all things new because throughout the Word, He has been telling us and doing just that. “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” He asks (Isaiah 43:19).

I don’t know about you, but I’m excited about the new year and can’t wait to see what God has in store for me because knowing God, it’s nothing but His very best. I came across a quote the other day that said, “Our hope is not in the new year, but in the One who makes all things new.” Do you long for a new beginning? Do you have a new dream? The Creator instilled them in your heart for a reason. Put your hope in the One who promises to make everything new. His words are trustworthy and true.
