Behold I Am Doing A New Thing
A new season: Haley and her diamond engagement ring. I had to let God do a new work in my heart for that new season. We are always coming up on new seasons in our life…graduating high school, graduating college, starting a new job, transitioning out of a job, getting married, having kids, all the kids moving out, retiring, turning 40 like me. That’s a new season, and new seasons are an opportunity for God to do new things in our life.
Turn to Isaiah 43.
Who is Isaiah?
Isaiah was a prophet, some considered him the greatest prophet ever. A prophet was a person who spoke to the people on behalf of God. Prophets would give words of correction and exhortation, and often they would tell the people what God was going to do in the future.
Thus says the Lord, who makes a way in the sea
And a path through the mighty waters,
Who brings forth the chariot and horse,
The army and the power
(They shall lie down together, they shall not rise;
They are extinguished, they are quenched like a wick):
“Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
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.”
