At some point you may have heard the phrase, “we broke new ground” when a new construction project has begun. It could have been building a new home, or a new commercial building. Usually it is a special occasion and a ribbon is cut, pictures are taken with all the investors, owners and personnel heavily involved in the project. The first set of shovels are stabbed into a pile of dirt representing the new construction has officially begun, breaking new ground.
Our personal development is an ongoing construction site. It may regard our character, attitude, leadership, spiritual walk with God, our mind set. We are ever changing, renewing ourself’s along the journey of life. We are a continuous renovation project in God´s hands, but we trust in the assurance that God will continually mold us.
“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.“Philippians 1:6 KJV
Many people come to Christ each year and others journey with Christ is short live. When someone comes to Christ and truly surrenders all to him all things are made new. So many changes are made in areas we never even thought could or would ever change. Some of the changes are radical and others take time and go through a process. When we step forward in faith into the new, into the unknown, our new life in Christ, I call this breaking new ground.
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away, behold, all things are become new.”2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV
We are stepping into uncharted territory. A territory that is completely new to us, but completely led by God.
The moment in time the word of God is introduced to our lives we are exposed to new principles and fundamentals we may have never heard of. The word of God then faces up against generational, spiritual bindings and paradigms that need to be broken. The word faces against these things so we are made new. Once we learn to apply the word to our lives through faith, we see these changes happen before our very eyes. We see the clay begin to form and shape in the potters hands.
“And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.”Jeremiah 18:4 KJV
I believe a great example of this is none other than Jesus. His ministry was ground breaking. The people in this time had never heard anyone speek in the way he did. With so much power and authority. Surely no other had preformed the miracles the way Jesus did. The disciples were amazed by his teachings and leadership because they had never heard any of the parables Jesus spoke of before.
I want to encourage you to break new ground in your life. You have the power, authority and ability to reverse any generational bondge through the access in Jesus. Just because specific illnesses, cancers or diseases, “run in the family,” does not define we should be bound in this same way. Many families suffer from abuse, domestic violence or come from broken homes. Just because we were exposed to this type of environment does not define we should relive the experience.
Break new ground and establish a new life in Jesus. Break new ground with your famliy and watch how God will set your feet on solid ground.
