OUR SOVEREIGN GOD WANTS TO DO A NEW THING
It is News Year’s Day 2021, and everyone around the world I am sure is hoping it will be POSITIVELY a new and better year than 2020.
I am reminded of a well known verse and promise , that I see has already been mentioned afresh on FB today Isaiah 43:19-21 NKJV.
Behold, I will do a NEW thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a ROAD in the wilderness
And RIVERS in the desert.
The beast of the field will honor Me,
The jackals and the ostriches,
Because I give WATERS IN THE WILDERNESS
And RIVERS in the desert,
To give drink to My people, My CHOSENchosen.
This people I have formed for Myself;
They SHALL DECLARE MY PRAISE.
N.L.T. For I am about to do something new.
See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?
I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.
The wild animals in the fields will thank me,
the jackals and owls, too,
for giving them water in the desert.
Yes, I will make rivers in the dry wasteland
so my chosen people can be refreshed.
I have made Israel for myself,
and they will someday honor me before the whole world.
Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new.
It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it?
There it is! I’m making a road through the desert,
rivers in the badlands.
Wild animals will say ‘Thank you!’
—the coyotes and the buzzards—
Because I provided water in the desert,
rivers through the sun-baked earth,
Drinking water for the people I chose,
the people I made especially for myself,
a people custom-made to praise me.
I would encourage you to meditate much on these verses and let the Holy Spirit quicken these verses to you personally.
Let us also never forget our God is OMNIPONTENT (all powerful) OMNIPRESENT (ever present) and OMNISCIENT (all seeing and all knowing).
There are I am sure many things you have been asking the Lord for, and believing for, and wonder when will it happen? Will it be the way you or I want it to be? Does God have a bigger and better plan for me that I realise?
I ask these questions, as I am very aware of another verse in Isaiah that we need to take into consideration in our thinking,
Isaiah 60:22 N.L.T. “At the right time, I, the Lord, will make it happen.”
Our Sovereign God,, knows the perfect time when He plans to DO A NEW THING IN OUR LIVES AND IN OUR WORLD.
Let us never forget HIS TIMING IS ALWAYS PERFECT.
Let us sure claim Isaiah 43:19 and let it become a Rhema (a quickened) Word) to us personally, let us continue to CONFESS THAT WORD IN FAITH, but let us never forget GOD’S TIMING AND RESPONSE IS ALWAYS PERFECT. Often when we least expect it the answer will come, other times we wonder if the answer will ever come, that is the time when God may be teaching us patience. Our God is not teasing us, HE ALWAYS KNOWS WHAT IS BEST FOR US AMEN.
