A New Thing
As much as it pains me to have experienced so much of my past without Him, my forgiven sinful "before" has made way for an "after" that shouts "Glory and Hallelujah!"
This past month, there is a verse in Isaiah the Lord has been using to speak to the very core of my being:
Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert
and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:18-19
His word tells me not to hang on to the past; old insecurities, old weaknesses, old hurts. It tells me He is doing something new.
God LOVES to do new things with the same old problems, old addictions, old hurtful relationships, old pains, old scars. Especially when it changes the same old you and the same old me. When we surrender those hurts and heartaches into His loving hands, only then can He do what He does best...make all things new.
He makes all things new. Revelation 21:5
New life, new freedoms, new relationships, and new regenerated people are His specialty. He desires to change us from the inside out so we can make a difference in this world.
Oh friends, there are quite a lot of "new things" He is doing in my life. What about you?
What "new thing" is He doing with you?
