“God is Doing a New Thing Now!”
18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. (Isaiah 43:18-19)
Are you excited that we are now in the year 2018? Do you expect great things to happen? Like many, we truly expect to see change in 2018. The question is, are we willing to change or will we continue to do the same thing over and over again expecting a different result? This is the definition of insanity! I do not know about you, but I am going with change!
As we start this year, we want to leave the past where it belongs, in the past. It is time for us to move forward. The Word of God says, remember ye not the former things. Time out for holding on to grudges and things people did to you or what they did not do. We must let those things and people go and move on with our lives. I can hear you saying, that is easier said than done! I get it. I understand. You must press beyond the hurt and pain and allow God to heal and mend your brokenness.
When we leave the past behind us, God said, Behold I will do a new thing! God said I will, which means, it shall happen. We are going to see God do what He said. He is going to do a new thing in our lives. The question that is always asked is when is God going to do a new thing in our lives? He gave us the answer in the scripture. He said NOW! Now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? Now means at this present time, in the next moment or in the present situation. I do not know about you, but I have a spirit of expectation and anticipation right now! I believe God and His Word. I encourage you to do the same. If God said that He is going to do a new thing, now, believe it and receive!
Many times we miss what God is doing and we cannot see the new things because we do not believe. We must believe God. The Bible says in 2 Chronicles 20:20, …Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper. When you believe God, you will become firm or stable according to Webster’s dictionary. In addition, when you believe God and his prophets, you will prosper. What does the word prosper mean? Prosper means to become very successful usually by making a lot of money, to become active, healthy or strong. It also means to have peace. I do not know about you, but I believe God! Make it up in your mind and believe God! You will prosper when you believe and trust God’s Word.
Even in the midst of your wilderness and desert situation, God will make a way. You may feel like you are in a rough spot and you cannot find your way out. God will make a way for you in the wilderness and He will cause rivers to flow in a desert! Come on Jesus! God is causing the impossible to be possible! Is there anything too hard for God? No!
My dear sister or brother, the time is now to believe God and His Word. God’s Word will not return unto Him void. He responds to His Word. I am here to encourage you and to give you hope that God is doing a new thing in your life right now! All you have to do is believe it and receive it!
If you are not sure about your belief system, I want you to repeat this prayer and declaration:
Father God, in the name of Jesus, I come before you as a sinner and I ask you to forgive me of all of my sins. I confess with my mouth and believe with my heart that your Son, Jesus, died on the cross for me and rose again with all power in His hand and He is now seated with you in Heaven. I thank you that I am saved!
I decree and declare that this year, 2018, will be one of my best years yet! God, you are doing a new thing in my life and I believe it and receive it! Everything about me is lining up with your will God. I will walk before you humbly in obedience and holiness. I thank you that my latter days are greater, and increase is upon me now! Prosperity is upon me for there is nothing missing or lacking in my life. I have the mind of Christ and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me in the name of Jesus! Amen.
Once again, Are you excited about 2018!
