“Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.” (Isaiah 42: 9)
New Year’s Eve can feel like a held breath—an anticipation of a fresh start to our experience individually and collectively. We may feel fearful of what is to come as time passes, but we can find hope and expectation in this verse.
The past is gone. We can let it go—look back and bless our former days, perhaps, but be ready for what is to come. And that doesn’t mean bracing for trouble. It means preparing ourselves for God’s unfolding good for us. God will declare these new things, but He will also, as He says here, make sure that we are ready.
God’s new ideas, inspiration, guidance, development, comes with a timely awareness. God’s voice readies us for His good news for us. We can listen on this cusp of a new hour of life for the vital Truth of being.
We can recognize in the midnight hour the stirrings of a new dawn, with sprouts of life springing up and beautiful buds forming. We can breathe a sigh of grateful release to the eternal Life that is Love.
