God lives above and beyond the realms of new and old. He created us from nothing, wove us together in our mother’s wombs. As we become aware and responsive to His love, He calls us His own, giving us a new name, rewriting our lineage and future. And what has been used, abused, worn out and lived long, He can, and will, cause them to be not repaired or fixed, but made new. Clean. Whole. Innocent but wise. Fresh but grounded.

But now, this is what the Lord says– he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. ~ Isaiah 43:1

He doesn’t do this with a secret catch, He’s not manipulating us for His own selfish gain, or buying our loyalty to fund His ventures… He does this, makes us new now and in the age to come, because of His great love that drives everything He is and does. God knows what’s going on in this world, He can see it and feel it within our own lives. He understands the afflictions we face. He gets it. He’s not offended, or disgusted by us, but He longs to work His love in our used up lives to bring refreshing and renewal to our souls and those around us – a miracle – today, tomorrow, and in eternity.

His redeeming love doesn’t just patch us up, or rinse us off, but miraculously brings ‘new’ to our worn-out hearts and lives. May you this week let go of your fears and inhibitions and allow this love, this Redeeming Saviour to work His newness in you.

Let me not forget the cost
Your paid in full on time
The perfect gift that gives on
Today your redemption is mine

Create new memories for me
As you let eternity unwind
For in you I live, move and become
Your redemption for all time
