“Don’t think about the past. I am creating something new. There it is! Do you see it? I have put roads in deserts, streams in thirsty lands.” (Isaiah 43: 18-19, Contemporary English Version)
Face forward! Open those spiritual eyes and get ready to see what God is already doing. We’ve entered into a new year. Let’s walk forward, onward, with an openness, a receptivity to what God is showing us.
For He is already preparing your year, your day, your precious hours for you. He has a design for your life that is worth waking up to, beholding with your whole soul, listening with your heart even more than your head for the gentle glory of grace.
The past will try to impose itself as an influence on your tomorrow, or as a predictor of what is to be. But that backward looking isn’t productive or helpful. It has nothing to do with the roads and streams that God is creating, unveiling for you. His provision is in this present moment. His inspiration is at hand. His Life is in you—reviving, renewing, revealing wisdom and joy and energy.
God, Divine Love, is creating a new moment, a new day, a new year just for you. Get ready for a beautiful experience. Happy New Year!
