That’s why, as we begin a New Year, we long for God to do something new. We cry out for Him to do a new thing.
If you are longing to see the Lord do something new this year, I have a passage of Scripture that will encourage your heart. In Isaiah 43:19 God speaks a word of hope to people stuck in a long captivity: “See, I am doing a new thing.” Another translation puts it this way: “Behold, I will do something new.”
Last Sunday I preached a sermon on Isaiah 43, explaining what the “new thing” was for the Jews in captivity and applying the truth of this passage to our lives and our churches. (Here’s a link to the video of the sermon)
May 2014 be a year when God does something new in our lives, in our churches and in our country. For our joy and for His glory!
