A New Beginning

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries1 Minutes

Today is Rosh Hashanah (also known as the Feast of Trumpets). This Jewish New Year starts a ten-day period that ends on the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur). This was one of God’s special feasts. His people were to search their souls and seek to make things right with him.

On this day, some Jewish households carry on the tradition of Tashlich (“cast off”). This tradition involves going to a body of water, tossing breadcrumbs into the water as they pray, and asking God for forgiveness.

This action is a reminder of God’s promise to forgive and have compassion on us. The purpose is to remind us that He does not retain His anger forever. In fact, He casts our sins “into the depths of the sea.”

Right now, God offers you the opportunity for a new beginning. Start by cleansing your heart. Confess your sins, worries, and problems. Are there things blocking the flow of His blessings? Are you anxious or worried? Have you allowed sin or bad habits to grab a hold in your life?

The Bible is clear: God is ready to forgive all your sins. Be honest and lay every burden and sin at His feet. And accept His forgiveness! Remember, God wants to bless you in new ways. Experience the joy of forgiveness and being clean. Then start celebrating. Let this be a day of new beginnings!
