God is doing something NEW | Don’t think about the past
This morning in my Morning Glory time, I was reading my bible and this verse stood out. It is Isaiah 43:18-19.
Forget the Past
The Lord said:
18 Forget what happened long ago!
Don’t think about the past.
19 I am creating something new.
There it is! Do you see it?
I have put roads in deserts,
streams[a] in thirsty lands.
In this verse God is asking for your attention to something He is doing in your life: He is creating something NEW. Isn’t that great news!
But sometimes we can get so distracted and focussed on the wrong thing. That we miss the new thing that is created. When you are fixed on looking on what’s behind you, you cannot see what’s in front of you. Besides that. You also risk to walk into something in the way. Maybe you get off track. Or even get lost.
That can also happen when you keep on looking at your past. We experience all sorts of things in life. Good and bad stuff. But this bible text starts with “forget what happened long ago! Don’t think about the past”. Sometimes when we experience great things in our lives. We forget we went through that valley before we got to the mountain top. Life is like that. But we have to keep moving forward.
What are you looking at
So when the new thing is in front of you. This verse is to get your attention. What are you looking at. Is it the passed events that happened in your life. Does that hinder you in your journey? Maybe it got you moving slower. Let’s be real.. you cannot move quickly to your goal when you are looking backwards.
Then God says what He has done. What He is capable of. He is capable of making roads in deserts. A desert is something to be seen as dry. Are you feeling that you are in a dry place. And does that ‘dry place’ makes you thirsty for something more and better? He has made streams in thirsty lands. God can give you all of that. He is a provider and can provide that what you need for your dry place. That describes How great of a God He is.
So let this be an encouragement to keep looking forward and see the NEW thing God has created just for you! Ask Him to help you see. And guide you forward. Let your eyes be opened to the beautiful NEW, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
