Something Old. Something New.

Most of us start the New Year facing some old problems.  Just because we take down last year’s calendar doesn’t mean we take away last year’s problems.  2014

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!
