Ecclesiastes 1:9 What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.
There's a certain regularity about the way this world works. Things tend to be cyclic and repeat - sometimes with monotonous regularity, sometimes less obviously. Winston Churchill said that those who fail to learn the lessons of history, will find themselves repeating its mistakes. There is nothing new under the sun. Without God, this world is a zero-sum game. But with God, everything is different:
Isaiah 42:9 Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.
He makes everything new and He will make you new too if you ask Him. Fed up with going round the same old same old for the umpteenth time? Just ask Him and He will turn your world the right way up and nothing will ever be the same again.
