NEW THINGS 2020

NEW THINGS IN 2020 GraceGen, Sunday 15 December 2019, Craig Botha

As we have been worshipping, I have been reminded of a stage production with actors and people on stage and I feel the Lord would say to us this morning, as 2019 draws to a close, as the curtain drops very soon on this year, the Lord would say to us: Well done for playing your part where I have placed you on the stage of life. Well done for your perseverance. Well done for playing your part on the stage of life. The Lord would just encourage us, as the curtain drops the end of this year, and in a play as actors scurry around and change their costumes, and the lighting changes and the props change, I feel like the Lord would say to us “ I want you to know, that when I lift the curtain in 2020, everything is going to change. I am going to re-position you for fresh things next year. It is not going to be a repeat performance of this year or years gone by. The Lord would say “I have fresh things for you, I have fresh parts to play, I have fresh things for you to do as the curtain rises next year, as the curtain opens next year. The Lord would say to us, the atmosphere would be different. The roles, and the things I have for you to do will change next year. It will not be a repeat performance. It will not be business as usual. It will not be going through the motions and the lines you know so well. The Lord says I have fresh things for you next year. I have fresh assignments. And even in this church, I feel there is going to be a new atmosphere as the curtain rises on next year. And so, prepare yourself, prepare yourself even now and over the next few weeks as the curtain drops. Prepare yourself in secret, prepare yourself in private, prepare your heart that when the curtain rises in 2020 you will be found ready and waiting to do what God calls you to do. For things are going to change in the new year. For God says I have got fresh things for you to do. It is not going to be a repeat performance, but it is going to be a completely new scene, new acts, new players, new roles, new lines, new parts, new sound, new lighting, it is going to be a new thing says the Lord. Amen
