New Wine Into New Wineskins

Just because God is doing a new thing in your life and you are building on new ground does not mean the start will be a bed of roses- you cannot put new wine into old wine bottles.

There is new foundation to be built because you cannot build on old foundation; it must be on new, solid ground so that the foundation and structure is everlasting. This means that things (you and all areas of your life) will have to be broken up and shaken up in order to make the end result a sure thing.

No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse; and no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles” (Mark 2:21-22).

God promises us in His Word that He will strengthen, stablish, and settle us
(1 Peter 5:10) and that He knows our end from our beginning; having an expected end for us (Jeremiah 29:11).

He intends to give us a beautiful, new path with great promise, but the building of that new path and the process it takes to get there will be bittersweet.
