After all the painful things that have happened in your past have come and gone, God still wants you to enjoy every single day of your life. This won’t happen, however, until you make up your mind to take hold of the abundant life that Jesus’ death and resurrection purchased for you. Until then, the devil will always try to take it away.
Jesus said, “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)” (John 10:10 AMP). Jesus came to this earth and died for us to have abundant life!
With the life He gives, you are a new creation. You don’t have to allow the old things that happened to you to continue to affect your new life in Christ. As a new creature in Christ Jesus, you can have your mind renewed according to the Word of God. Things will change for the better when you live in the new nature that Jesus purchased for you.
Prayer Starter: God, I choose to daily, actively put on the new nature that Jesus purchased for me. I am regenerated in Christ – a new, happy and whole creation in You!
