Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert”. Isaiah 43:19 (AMPC)
Have you ever thought for yourself or been told by someone else—sorry, there is just no way? No way that could ever happen, no way that could possibly work out, no way that will ever make sense? Yet in your heart you knew—there was more. There had to be.
Listen to this, beloved one, here is the most glorious good news—God Your Father has gone ahead of you and worked ALL things out. He has made a way in the wilderness, whatever that wilderness may be. He has purposed for rivers of life to spring forth in the deserts of your life, despite the dryness all around.
And He can do it, precious one, oh yes, He can. He is the only one Who is able, and He is doing it, even now. Doing it in the most life-giving, life-affirming ways possible. Doing it all for you!
Abba Father, You alone know the desert seasons of my life, and the areas that feel like a wilderness, even today.
Would you come into all that is old and not of you—in my experiences, in my memories, in my failures and my fears—and make them new?
I choose to stand in the river of Your life Lord. I choose to look to, and to trust in, You.
In Your precious and Holy Name, I pray.
