Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.2 Corinthians 5:17
READ: John 3:1-5
1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
God is the ultimate planner; He is the greatest architect and the creator of all. He already planned for everything and everyone even before he put the universe together. No wonder He told Jeremiah that He knew him even before he formed him (Jeremiah 1:4-5).
God had a beautiful plan for His creation unfortunately, when man sinned, the plan became distorted. Being the Almighty, God decided in His infinite mercy, to restore man to Himself, just like the potter did in the interesting story in Jeremiah 18:1-4. I prophesy to you: God’s original purpose for your life shall be restored today, in the mighty name of Jesus.
There is nobody God cannot restore, as long as the person is willing and obedient. In 1Timothy 1:15, Apostle Paul referred to himself as a 'Chief sinner', yet God counted him worthy to experience the wonder of becoming a new creature as stated in today's memory verse.
Like Jesus told Nicodemus that he had to be born again if he would see the kingdom of God, you also must be born again if you would become a new man.
John 3:6 says
“That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”
Thus, the second Adam - Jesus must form in you if you would experience the new birth that produces the new man. You must surrender your life to Him totally so He can recreate and restore His beautiful plans for you that have been distorted by sin and the evil one. Acts3:19 says:
“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.”
As you forsake the life of sin today, you will experience a great and positive turnaround in every sphere of your life, in the mighty name of Jesus.
Father, please restore all Your plans for my life that the enemies or sin have distorted, in the mighty name of Jesus.
