Ezekiel 36:25-27 TLB
A New Spirit
Today is the last day of the year, and tomorrow brings with it not just a new year but a fresh start. No matter what we’ve faced this last year — the hard, challenging, or painful; the lovely, exciting, or beautiful — tomorrow is full of fresh mercies. God offers us grace and forgiveness, a new heart, and a new spirit. When we accept this gift of a new year and a new life in Him, He promises to give us a heart that is once again soft and a spirit that is obedient.
As we close out this year, reflecting on all that has happened in the past 365 days, all the ways we’ve grown and struggled and loved and learned, let’s remember that a new day is coming. And He will give us a new heart!
