Today’s song is “Moving Forward” as ministered by American Gospel Artiste Jessica Reedy. Her passion, voice and soulful way of singing makes this version so touching and beautiful.
This is a powerful song, that talks about letting go of our old lives, and moving forward into the new life we have been given in Christ Jesus. In Jesus we all re-created. Remember what the bible says in 2nd Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV);
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
The Living Bible (TLB) says,
17 When someone becomes a Christian, he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same anymore. A new life has begun!
We are new people in Jesus once we surrender our lives to Him. Our spirits are transformed, and we become just as we were created to be at the beginning; With all blessing, dominion and power in the image and likeness of God- Genesis 1: 26-30.
It is up to us to fully realise that, and begin to live out our new lives daily by the power of the Holy Spirit in us. As Jessica Reedy says in the song;
Everyday is a choice to keep believing God!
We have to make a daily decision to move on in His power. To live above all sin and flesh. To move forward in spite of pain, disappointments and hurts. To move forward even when our flesh doesn’t feel like it. To move forward when sometimes all we wanna do is wallow in pain and self pity.
It is our responsibility to appropriate the new life we have been given in Christ Jesus, and to live out the glorious life God has called us to. Thank God we are not in this alone. The Holy Spirit works it out with us as we wait on Him at all times. (John 14:26, Rom 8:13, 1st Pet 1:2)
It is our prayer today that we are people to move forward in Jesus. That our light shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day. May our Glorious destinies in Jesus become a reality here on earth, in Jesus name Amen.
God Bless You.
