For new beginnings, there are plenty of scriptures that can be found in the Bible. The Bible is a guidebook for Christians and it helps us to walk on the right track.
When we believe Jesus in our hearts we feel something new and we can evaluate our spirit. We understand that we are new to Christ. So, our new beginnings must be guided by the word of God.
The Lord wants us to make an intimate relationship with us. If we approach him with a positive mind then we will experience his Goodness.
2 Chronicles 7:14(KJV)“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”
Explanation:- When the children of Israel went away from the presence of the Lord they suffered a lot. They understood that they were in danger, so they tried to come back to the Lord. If they repent for their sins then God will receive them.
In today’s time, we need to confess our sins before the Lord when we fail to obey his instructions.

Explanation:- In Christ we must give up all our sinful works which we practiced before receiving Jesus. In Jesus, we should only think of good things which glorify God’s name only.
We need to be careful as long as we will be on this earth to keep our faith in Jesus alone to achieve eternal life.
Isaiah 43:18(KJV)“Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old”
