There are new experiences waiting for you in 2017.
In Acts 3 when the lame man was healed he experienced things he never thought he would experience: –
- He walked – which he had NEVER done in all of the 40 years of his life
- He went into the temple instead of being an outsider ,as he had been for all of his life
- He was touched by Peter, hence he touched and experienced the anointing of God through the Holy Spirit (one of the first recorded in the New Testament)
The Bible is full of stories about people having new experiences
Elizabeth , who was barren and very old, experienced the joy of childbirth; blind people became able to see; people were healed and raised from the dead; Joseph experienced prison and then promotion. Many things happened that they couldn’t plan and were not prepared for. They could never have imagined these things happening to them.
You cannot say that you are old now and there’s no time left for new experiences
Moses was in his eighties when he saw the Burning Bush; lead the Israelites out of Egypt; witnessed the parting of the Red Sea and wrote the Ten Commandments.
Serving God is exciting, there are always new things around every corner – for all of us.
But, as it is written in 1 Corinthians 2:9, ” Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” (NKJV)
