Lord, as we start all kinds of new things this time of Year like a new diet or new fitness routine, remind us of the new life that is possible when we decide to let You in.
For Your word says, "For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland (Isaiah 43:19).
Lord, my life has felt like a dry wasteland with no way out! I need something new. I'm ready. This new year, I accept Your forgiveness made possible by what Jesus did for me on the cross, and I am ready to follow You on a new path. -In Jesus' name, Amen.
