I Am Doing a New Thing!
Read Isaiah 43:19–21
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
The wild animals honor me,
the jackals and the owls,
because I provide water in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland,
to give drink to my people, my chosen,
the people I formed for myself
that they may proclaim my praise.
- What is the new thing God says He is doing?
- Have you been through a season of life that you might describe as a desert or a wasteland? When? What was happening? As you look back on that season, what way was made that led you out of the situation or experience?
- What area or areas of your life feel like a desert or wasteland? What is your prayer? What is your expectation and hope about finding a way out?
Father, help me to stay on course. When I feel hopeless or directionless, bring Your promises of restoration and repair to mind. Redeem my waywardness and destructive choices. Remind me of the things that pull me away from You and divert my attention from Your purposes, so that I choose the way You have set before me that leads to life, truth, and wholeness. Remind me that You, Jesus, are way, the truth, and the life. Reset my heart and mind on this truth. Amen.
