The women who went to anoint Jesus’ body last saw Jesus when He was crucified, and they probably imagined that His body was still in the grave; but when they got into that sepulcher where He had been laid, they met an empty tomb, and an angel who told them that Jesus was risen. They had old information, and that old information led them to take needless actions. They came with old information, but alas, things had changed.
Friend, old information will take you back to where you are coming from. As you press into new realms, discard old and expired information. Discard the information of how you were rejected in time past. Discard the news of your past failures, regrets, pains, delays, etc. Discard the news of your lack of help. Discard the news of how people worked against you. Discard the news of what didn’t work in the past.
Those women were meant to be celebrating the news of Jesus’ resurrection, but they were too fixated on the information about his death. Because they were fixated on old information, they couldn’t embrace new revelations and new experiences. If you keep holding on to your old information, you will be stagnated and distracted. Old information will produce old realities.
Open your eyes and God will show you new things that He is about to do. Open your eyes to see what God is doing now. Open your eyes and you will see new opportunities in the same places where you were once rejected. Open your eyes and you will see the works of God around you which you have not even noticed. Open your eyes and you would see what God is showing you which you have been too busy to notice.
Old information will give you the same results you have been trying to change. Ask God to open your eyes to see new things that will position you on a higher level.
