Ascribe To The Lord – The Initiative Of His Sons

The Parousia, the presence of the Lord dwelling among us in this new day, begins with us. We do not wait for Him to appear; if we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us (James 4:8). Through our worship of Him, we initiate His presence.

In I Chronicles 16, we see the beginning of the revelation of ascribing to the Lord. After the ark of the covenant was brought to Jerusalem, David marked a new day for Israel by commissioning Asaph to bring a new song and a new worship to the people (I Chronicles 16:7). David tells us that in this new song we ascribe to the Lord all that He is, and as we do this, we are making the Lord and His deeds known to the nations (I Chronicles 16:28-29).

This new song begins in us. The temple that He will inhabit comes from the heart of a people who know Him and ascribe to Him everything that He is and has done. In our worship, we are proclaiming to the nations all that this living Word has spoken. We are proclaiming our faith that the Word will be fulfilled to a thousand generations.

We enter into this new day through worship. We are commanded to sing a new song to the Lord (Psalm 149:1). God says that He will do something new in a time that people have become weary of Him (Isaiah 43:18-21). For those who have become weary of worshiping Him, they will lose His presence in their lives. For us, this new day will be a time of worshiping Him and we will trigger His presence in our lives.

Lord, root out anything in us that is weary of You. Let Your glory be alive to us. Let Your deeds, wonders, strength, and all that You are be alive in our hearts. This is the worship that will make Him draw near and it is the hallmark of the prophetic community.

A New Song – The Action of The Holy Spirit In Our Generation

Today, Monte Sião hosted approximately 200 Catholic young adults to experience a new level of worship as one family, driven to see something new come forth out of our oneness.

God is once again pouring out His Holy Spirit on His people. Every time the Holy Spirit comes, we should look for action because His outpouring means action! Jesus Christ (Mark 1: 12) and the apostles (Acts 4: 31) were launched into action by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

The former things have already come to pass but now it is the time for a new action, a new day God wants to bring forth (Isaiah 43: 18-19). He said He would do something new and it will manifest through a new level of worship. This new day is the day of the Kingdom. It will be through a new level of worship, a new song, that this day of the Kingdom will be brought to the earth.

As we come to the days of the Kingdom, we will find that the action God is bringing forth in us is a new song (Revelation 14:3). Today, we declare, “Lord, accomplish Your will in our generation. By the power and action of the Holy Spirit, put in our hearts this new song.”

Lord, Impart The Truth To My Innermost Being

This Word from the Lord will change your life! God is trying to touch the innermost parts of our beings and make us know wisdom in the hidden places (Psalm 51:6). The prophet Nathan had to be sent by God to talk to David in a parable so that he could see and understand that his actions as a king were corrupted due to the corruption hidden in his heart. David could not continue to rule as king as long as these hidden things existed in his own heart and mind. Likewise, we will not be able to continue to move into the things God has for us if we keep our innermost being hidden from Him.

God wants us to know the truth in the inner parts. It is not His will that we be unaware of these hidden places because it is out of what fills the heart that a man speaks. It is from these secret places that we act and think (Matthew 15:18). We will never be prophets to the world if we have the same hidden areas in our hearts that the world has.

Wisdom, justice, and righteousness have to be imparted into our hidden places. We cry out like David: “Lord, expose these hidden places to Your wisdom, Word, and righteousness. Cleanse us from all that exists that does not come from You. Abide in us! Give us a heart like David that opens up when faced with the truth.”

We Appropriate This New Day

God is setting before us a new day in which He will move in ways that we have not known before. As it was with the Israelites when they left Egypt, we leave behind everything of the wilderness, even the manna that once fed us.

By His suffering and victory on the cross, He broke away our old nature with all of its sin, restraints, walls, reluctances, restrictions, and refusals. He makes us white as snow (Psalm 51:7), and we are free to perceive and receive all that He is doing in the new day. The initiative is ours to appropriate it.

On this New Year’s Eve, we proclaim our faith that in His provision is the divine providence and power to deliver us completely and thoroughly from all things that hold us back from His Kingdom.

Driven For This New Day

God has provided us with everything pertaining to life and godliness (II Peter 1:2-3). With the very same power that He pulled His Son out of death and seated Him at His right hand, He is reaching through the old in our lives and through everything that resists Him to bring us into the new. The question is: Will we leave anything unappropriated? He has provided everything, but will we receive it?

Our response to His divine power must be to aggressively free ourselves from the old—our old life, our old bonds, and our old ways of thinking. What we have known may have been yesterday’s life-sustaining bread, but we are looking to live in a new day, a new year, a new time. We are looking to enter into His Kingdom, and yesterday’s manna will only bring forth worms.

Throughout the Scriptures, the greatest reference to the new is illustrated by wine. God provides the grapes; we make the wine. We take all that God has given to us and we create the new wine of this new day. On this New Year’s Eve, we set aside the old self, and by our drive and our faith, we become empty vessels that God can fill with the new.

The New Leaven of the Kingdom

God is doing a whole new thing in the earth by bringing forth His Kingdom, and it is totally different than anything we have ever known or experienced. Are we willing and ready for the new?

Two parables show us why the new impartation that God is bringing to our hearts and minds cannot be mixed with the old (Matthew 9: 16-17). New wine poured into an old wineskin results in an explosion, and both the new and the old wine are ruined. And a new patch on an old garment pulls away. The new thing God is doing will always pull itself away from what we’ve known in the past.

We must be driven to separate ourselves from the old. We must prepare for the new thing that God is going to do. It is our decision to sweep out the old leaven and to make room for the new. We will continue to build on the foundation God has given, but that is different than trying to mix what God did yesterday with what He is doing today.

We can make this new year significant to us by our choice to clean out the old. Lord, cleanse us from everything that is holding on to the old. We hunger for the new thing that You want to do and we prepare our hearts to receive it. We want to be new wineskins, allowing You to work and expand in our lives in this day of the Kingdom.

His Word Comes With A Guarantee

God swore by Himself when He made a promise to Abraham (Hebrews 6:13-15). No other guarantee was needed back then, and no other guarantee is needed for you today other than God Himself. Whatever He has promised you in His Word, He will do it.

Abraham waited patiently because he knew that God’s promise to him was guaranteed by God’s very name. Our faith must be like Abraham’s—a faith that knows that the Word of God comes with a guarantee that He will do it. We simply lay hold of His promises and His Word, and we enter into His rest.

This Word changes everything in our relationship with Him and His Word. We lay hold of what He has said, knowing that all His promises are backed up by all that He is.
