Apostle Grace Lubega
Matthew 9:17 (NKJV); Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”.
We are living in a very fundamental time of the spirit. God is ready to do great things in and through us, His children.
This notwithstanding, there is a fundamental law of the Spirit in operation: God does not put new wine into old wineskins.
For us to be capable of receiving what He intends to give us, the old wineskin must be completely transformed.
The vessel that wants God to use it must be ready to change its mind; how it thinks, prays, fasts, studies the Word and responds to the presence of God.
One cannot expect God to anoint them to change the world when they have not made any effort to yield themselves to Him so He can deal with them.
In Isaiah 43:19, the Bible says, ‘Behold I do a new thing.’ Indeed, God wants to launch you deeper into His person, and to show you great and unsearchable truths but He cannot do so if you still have the same sloppy attitude towards prayer, His Word and service to Him.
The wineskin must become new in its thinking, its philosophy of living, its attitude towards work and the paradigms within which it lives.

GOLDEN NUGGET: God does not put new wine into old wineskins. One cannot expect God to anoint them to change the world when they have not made any effort to yield themselves to Him so He can deal with them.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for Your work in my spirit. The Bible says that I must be transformed by the renewal of my mind. I change my attitude towards the things of God so that I am better able to handle the new, that is coming in, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
