Buckner Kenya believes in a new beginning, even after the COVID-19 pandemic rendered most people hopeless and got different countries across the globe on their knees. The first step to the journey towards a fresh beginning is by forgetting the past and focusing on the future.
The book of Isaiah 43:18-19 emphasizes on the importance of forgetting the past, since the Lord has promised us a bright future. “Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.,"
Just like the Lord spoke to Isaiah about letting his past go, he simply tells us that we can learn from our mistakes, make changes, ask for forgiveness and move on. This does not only apply to the mistakes made, but also the challenges that one encountered in the past years. The second part on His intention to do new things in our lives teaches us that letting go the past, gives room for new and great things, and the best way for us to accomplish that, is by fixing our eyes on Christ, the author and perfecter of our faith.
This is a word of encouragement to everyone who had lost hope in life due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many people lost their livelihoods and loved ones, schools were closed and the prices of goods and services went up. However, people should forget about what happened last year, and focus on having a new and brighter 2021. The Lord promise us that he will help us go through the challenges and emerge victorious.
