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 43:19)

I have seen or heard this verse it seems like a dozen time since the New Year.  I have been asking God for the past few days, “What’s up with this word?” Tonight, as I was asking Him what enCOURAGING word do you want me to share, He chose this one.  Later, as I was sitting briefly sitting on the potty, a place of solitude, where He has my full attention.  He directed me to browse the pictures of sunrises and sunsets that we have shared.  I was amazed.

It was as if He stepped into the room.  The room became a gallery of large masterpieces, no two were alike.  I heard Him say, “LOOK! I will do a new thing!  Every morning and every evening, I do a new thing.  From the beginning of time through eternity, no sunrise nor sunset has ever been nor will ever be the same. Trust me. I will do a new thing.”

Every day He brings a new thing to the day.  It springs forth like the sunrise.  He brings a new thing to our walk with him.  He brings a new thing to our marriage.  He brings new things to life.

Trust Him with the new thing.  He will make a way in the wilderness.  The wilderness does not have a road to follow, steps to climb, nor directions signs as to where to go.  However, He says, He will do a new thing.  He will make a way.  He says He will bring rivers of life to the dessert places of life. 

I enCOURAGE you to embrace the new thing that He brings into your life.  In the new thing, He will make a way in your wilderness and He will bring rivers to your dessert.  He is more faithful than the sunrise and sunset that He supplies each day.
