A New Start

“And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God, Many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.”  Psalm 40:3
 
     The Bible is full of times when God gave people a new start. Failure is the plight of fallen man and reminds us of our need for God. The author of this Psalm is David. It could have been written during the time when he was running from Saul, or more likely, when Absalom had taken his kingdom. David had experienced God’s forgiveness before and had been given a new start after the sin with Bathsheba.
 
     David reminds us that the focus of human flesh tends to be human things. We see the problems of our life, we see the challenges to truth, and we see the desires and needs of our flesh. It is easy to have the cares of this world attach themselves to us without us even being aware of it. Jesus washed the feet of the disciples, a custom that recognized that while a person may be clean, the walking of the dusty streets allows the dirt to attach to us without our knowledge.
 
Commencement is one of those “New” times in life. Mr. Zakry Minor is graduating Hope Christian School and starting a new path in his life. We encourage you to pray for him.
Our upcoming revival meetings are also an opportunity for a “New” start. I encourage you to plan to come every night of the meetings and rejoice in God’s goodness.
