Start Fresh

Updated: Aug 19, 2023

There was a project I worked on a while ago and never completed. (I’m sure you can relate.) Because of its complexity, the task was a taller order than I thought and it seemed like I kept hitting walls in my progress on it.

(Entrepreneurs deal with this struggle quite often because in some case, God is allowing us to trail-blaze and do things that have never been done before.)

Nonetheless, I had a sense yesterday that I should try it again and my first reaction was to go back and look at the old project to see if I could just tweak it and make it work.

I had heard the Lord say “give it another shot” and immediately assumed it meant to revisit the old thing.

Sometimes revisiting the old can work out fine. If you’re cooking a meal and realized after tasting that you added a tiny bit too much salt, it’s not necessary to toss the entire recipe. A simple tweak will do for the next time.

However, there are other times when the meal was a total miss and it seemed like everything was off. Or maybe it wasn’t a meal. Maybe it was a task or a dream or a season…

Maybe the mixture of everything you were doing then won’t work at all for what He’s doing now.

The season has shifted.

As I sought the Lord more in prayer today about this, I heard the words start fresh.

What you did last time won’t work for this one because God’s doing something new. Try again, but don’t restart the old; start fresh.

The scripture that comes to mind is:

““Do not remember the former things, Or ponder the things of the past. Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.”

- Isaiah‬ ‭43:18-19‬ ‭AMP‬‬

I don’t know what starting fresh looks like for you, but I pray for a fresh grace to see things a bit clearer this time.

I rebuke walls and blockages that had us confused and caused a lack of clarity in the previous.

I declare fresh anointing and fresh oil for the journey ahead. May we complete every assignment that has our name on it with new passion and precision in a fraction of the amount of time it took before in Jesus name!

Love you guys!
