God is doing something new within my life. I believe it. I see it. His word says it. “See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do not you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland” (Isaiah 43:19 NIV). God is making a way for me! Even though my situation seems dead. God is making a way. Even though I feel empty on the inside. God is making a way. Even when it is hard to pray and I do not know what to pray. God is making a way. Amen!
I have to realize that when God does this new thing in my life; he is going to have to come in and rearrange, remove, and release some things within and around me. If it does not please him; it has to go. If it disturbs my peace; it cannot be. If it is not good for me or if they are not for me; it has to be removed. If I am holding on to something too tight. If it distracts me from my purpose. If it does not move me towards my purpose it will be gone. In Jesus name! This is the process that no one wants to go through. Most people quit in the beginning of this process. Who wants their life flipped upside down! Who wants to endure change. Who wants to go through the struggle. No one! But in order to receive all the blessings that God has for me. It is going to require me to go through all the growing pains. It is not going to feel or look good. It is not going to make sense to me. But once I come out on the other side of this process. I am going to be a new in God.
I was encouraged this morning to “Forget the former things; (and)…not dwell on the past” (Isaiah 43:18 NIV). You see this new thing God is doing in my life is going to require me to let go of my past and what used to be. Letting go is not easy but I have to trust my father. That he knows what is best for me. I cannot walk into my future holding on to the past. So, today I choose to let go of my past and walk boldly into the future God has for me. For I know that my future is bright in Jesus.
