"...let's just go ahead and be what we were made to be..." Romans 12:4 The Message Bible

Dear Survivors

Far too many of us, are stuck in the same old routines, forgetting that Isaiah said, "Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a New thing..." Then Paul takes us into the New Testament with this statement, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a New creature; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become New." And nothing is clearer then Romans 6:4, "Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in Newness of life." Did you catch that last part? "Walk In Newness..."! Walk implies Activity. Notice “Walk” is Present Tense, not walked, like an old activity, but “Walk”, as in Present Tense, Today, Right Now, Currently, New! As Survivors, you are to Walk in New Victories Everyday! Daily waving a flag of Victory in the devil's face!

With that said you have to ask, if "Newness" is suppose to be so Evident in the life of a believer, why are we so crazy-glued to the "Old?"

Listen to what Tony Evans writes: "Every day you get out of the same old bed and go to the same old bathroom to look at the same old face in the same old mirror. You go to the same old closet to choose from the same old clothes, then sit down at the same old breakfast table to eat the same old breakfast. Then you go to that same old garage and get into that same old car to head down that same old road to that same old job. There you work all day for that same old paycheck, next to those same old people, supervised by that same old manager. Then you get back into that same old car and head back down that same old road to that same old house. Once you are home you sit down in that same old chair to watch that same old television. At the end of the day you go to that same old bed and sleep that same oldway, so you can get up the next morning and start that same old routine all over again."

In case you didn’t know, that is Not the Mentality of a Survivor! Survivors are Daily in High Pursuit of some New Challenge to Overcome. Listen, God did Not Create us, and He most certainly didn't Redeem us, to Live a Purposeless Existence! Survivors Don't Exist - They Live and they Live not just abundantly—but More Abundantly. "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it More Abundantly."What is currently around us is not all there is. God has an Awesome Customized Plan for each of us. We simply need to seek it, find it, and live it to the fullest!

The Scripture says, "No one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; for the patch pulls away from the garment, and the tear is made worse. Nor do they putNew wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins are ruined. But they put New wine into New wineskins, and both are Preserved." When something is Preserved it means it's "Kept, Maintained, and Protected". And what’s being "Kept, Maintained, and Protected?" Your Newness! Understand that the old causes damage, it tears, it destroys, it pulls away, it severs, but the New Is Preserved! It’s time to Break-Out of the Old, and Break-In to the New!

Survivors, crush that devil under your foot on this current level, then lift it and put it on the next level and the next devil and attain your next New Victory!

Homework Assignment: Read and keep in mind these Revelation Promises to the Survivor,

Revelation 2:7, “He who is able to hear, let him listen to and give heed to what the Spirit says to the assemblies (churches). To Him Who Overcomes (Is Victorious), I Will Grant to Eat [Of the Fruit] of the Tree of Life, Which is in the Paradise of God.” (Amplified Bible).

Revelation 3:5, “He Who Overcomes Will Thus Be Clothed In White Garments; and I Will Not Erase His Name From the Book of Life, and I Will Confess His Name Before My Father and Before His Angels.” (New American Standard Bible).

Revelation 3:21, “He Who Overcomes (Is Victorious), I Will Grant Him to Sit Beside Me On My Throne, As I Myself Overcame (Was Victorious) and Sat Down Beside My Father On His Throne.” (Amplified Bible).

Revelation 21:7, “He Who Overcomes Will Inherit These Things, and I Will Be His God and He Will Be My Son.” (New American Standard Bible).

People of God, Grab a hold of these Promises and You will Never Again Settle to Live the Same Ole Same Ole Life Again! Stop Settling and Seek For Something New!
