Podcast #387: “All Things New” by Big Daddy Weave

Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

How does God do “new” things? What does it mean that He makes all things new? These are the questions I asked myself inspired by Big Daddy Weave’s song, “All Things New.”

Join me on a discovery tour from Old to New Testaments inspired by this song.

In this episode, I discuss:

  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
    • Read in context
    • Utilize section headings
    • Consult an overview
  • The 30 Day Music Challenge
  • Rehearsing phrases in songs and not really knowing what Scripture says about them
  • Reading Isaiah 42-44 to take in context Isaiah 43:19 where God was doing a new thing
  • Spending time in these same chapters in Episodes 384 and 385
  • Consulting an overview
  • How the original audience of Isaiah 44:14-21 were defeated people under worldly domination
  • The new thing God may be doing could be now, but He always has His eyes set on eternity
  • How I need to stop resenting the way God chooses to fulfill His purposes
  • How freedom from captivity in Isaiah 44 was considered a “new thing” by God, and our freedom from the captivity of sin is also called “new” – 2 Corinthians 5:17
  • God’s reason for making us into a “new creation” is to give us the ministry of reconciliation – 2 Corinthians 5:18-21
  • Where we see the actual phrase “all things new” – Revelation 21:1-7
  • Keeping our eyes fixed on the “new” God has in mind – 1 John 2:17

This Week’s Challenge

Let the Word of God change the way you think. Continue to spend time in Isaiah 40-55, focusing on chapter 44, where we see God doing a new thing in an unexpected way. Head over to 2 Corinthians 5 and learn all about the new bodies we’ll get in eternity and how we’re made into a new creation here on earth, and why. Finally, dwell on Revelation 21, taking in all the newness promised Christ-followers in eternity.
