As I have said in My Word, you are a new creation. When you were reborn into Christ, your old man was crucified with Him. When I raised you up to new life, you became a new creation.
Ponder that for a moment. No longer continue to see yourself through the eyes of the old man. Share your testimony as one who is a new creation, not as the old man trying to become new. I say you are new NOW. Sanctification is a process, but you must realize that you are a new creation in My sight. For I see the end from the beginning. I make all things new and I say that you are new.
Therefore, take heed and reNEW your mind daily. Continue to decree that you are a new creation. You are a creator, so let your words create life and not death. Each day you eat the fruit of your words, so let them bring forth life today. No longer see yourself through the lens of the past, but decree new life to come forth. In the beginning I spoke. Now it is your turn. Command the new to come forth and watch as the new creation in you comes to life.
Isaiah 48:6-7 Amplified Bible (AMP)
6 “You have heard [these things foretold]; look at all this [that has been fulfilled].
And you, will you not declare it?
I proclaim to you [specific] new things from this time,
Even hidden things which you have not known.
7 “They are created now [called into being by the prophetic word] and not long ago;
And before today you have not heard of them,
So that you will not say, ‘Oh yes! I knew them.’
Isaiah 60:1 Amplified Bible (AMP)
“Arise [from spiritual depression to a new life], shine [be radiant with the glory and brilliance of the Lord]; for your light has come,
And the glory and brilliance of the Lord has risen upon you.
Ezekiel 11:19-20 Amplified Bible (AMP)
19 And I will give them one heart [a new heart], and put a new spirit within them. I will take from them the heart of stone, and will give them a heart of flesh [that is responsive to My touch], 20 that they may walk in My statutes and keep My ordinances and do them. Then they shall be My people, and I will be their God.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life].
