those are the old wineskins that you have to get rid of. This is a new
season. What’s happened in the past is over and done. You may have been
through some disappointments, you may have tried and failed or things

to get a new vision for your life. It’s time to open yourself to a new
way of thinking so that you can move forward and receive all of the
blessings God has in store for you!

today I choose to get rid of old wineskins. I choose to release old
thinking, old habits, and anything that would keep me from Your best.
Strengthen me by Your Spirit so that I can live my life in a way that
pleases You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
