A New Thing

‘“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”’ Isaiah 43:18-19 (NIV).

The Israelites had been slaves in Egypt, but God promised them something new. They cried to God in their captivity and He heard and delivered them. Though imprisoned, He alone was able to set them free. A new exodus would take place through a new desert. The past miracles were nothing compared to the new things God would do for them in the future.

We have a God who sees our struggles and hears our cries for help. Moreover, we have a God who can deliver and do new things in our lives. We have a God who wants us to move ahead with Him into areas that look impossible, but with Him, are not. Can we trust that God will create new paths in the desert places of our lives?

Paul reminds us that with Christ all things are made new. We are made new. ‘Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come.’ (2 Corinthians 5:17). Christians have been made brand new people on the inside. The Holy Spirit gives us new life; we are not the same anymore.

We are not reformed or rehabilitated, we are recreated into a vital relationship with Christ. At conversion we are not turning over a new leaf that will soon be forgotten, we are beginning a new life with a new Lord of our life that will last through eternity.


‘Heavenly Father, thank you that you have saved me and that I am now a completely new creation in Christ. Thank you that you can make streams in the hard, desert places that I am now experiencing. I wait for you to do a new thing.’

In Jesus’ Mighty Name,

Final Thoughts:

Do our lives reflect this newness? We now have a new perspective and new attitudes. We are new people who believe that God will constantly be doing new things in our lives. Do we perceive and wait for the new things that God is doing in our lives?

Be encouraged, for God would say to us today, ‘See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you.’ (Isaiah 42:9).

Be Greatly Blessed!
