Introduction: We all, like new things but unfortunately, many of us are carrying old glory. We can excite people with old glory and not inspire them. If we do not inspire, we will expire. In Isaiah 43:13 the Bible says "Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it? (Isaiah 43:13 KJV)". Our God reigns from everlasting to everlasting. He is the same yesterday today and forever. God wants us to forget the old glory and expect something new. God wants us to grow from glory to glory. The glory of ten years ago should be different from the current glory.

(Isaiah 43: 13 – 19)

We have to examine ourselves so that we do not abandon God on the way. If we do, we remain stagnant and even backslide. We should not allow the system to change us, but we must be ready to change our world. For us to stand the test of time we must be ready to draw close to, God. We must be ready to go all the way with God. God wants us to build a testimony so that our lives can be an epistle that others will read and come to, Jesus. If we want God to bless us, we must we must be willing to appreciate Him. One of the blessings we receive from God is His Amazing Grace. Grace of God is made sufficient in our weaknesses. In Haggai 2:3, the Bible says “Who is left among you that saw this house in her first glory? and how do ye see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing? (Haggai 2:3 KJV). The worst bondage anyone can be in is to pretend to be who we are not. The grace of God does not work with our competence. God can make us whatever He wants us to be in spite of our weaknesses.
