A New Thing….

It springs up!

Don’t you see it?July 14 2015 a new thing

I like doing new things.

Going new places.

New experiences.

New thoughts.

One of the zillion things I love about our God is he is always doing something new.

Isaiah tells us in his 43rd chapter to forget the former things.  Don’t dwell on the past.

I find it interesting this comes right after he reminds us how God divided the mighty Red Sea so the Israelites could escape slavery.   Then God ‘extinguished’ the Egyptian army by releasing the waters over them.

Now Isaiah tells us not to dwell on the past but to look forward to the new things God is doing.

It’s good for us to remember God’s faithfulness in the past but we shouldn’t stay there.  God is here today.  And he’s doing something new.

He is making a way in the wilderness.

Does our current culture ever feel like a wilderness to you?

When you’re out in the world, away from your church family and your Christian friends, do you ever feel like you’re in a wasteland?  A place devoid of truth?  Lacking light?  Kind of gray?

I do.

But wait!

God says he is doing a new thing!

He is making a way for us in the wilderness.

He is providing living water for our souls.

And streams of refreshment and purpose for his chosen people –  Us!

We praise you, dear Father!

You are our living water!

Thank you for the new people, the new thoughts, and new opportunities you bring into our lives each day!

We love you!
