“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
Isaiah 43:19 (NIV)
Dear God, Thank you for producing change in our lives and making us more like You. Help us to seek You when navigating new challenges and to remember that You work all things together for good.
God wants to do new things in our lives. It may feel uncomfortable in the moment, but He always uses the change to grow us and make us more like Him.
Isaiah 43:19 is proof that God uses change in our life to make something beautiful. God challenges us to be aware of His work by saying, “Do you not perceive it?”
This week I encourage you to identify the areas in your life where God is doing a new thing. Thank Him for the opportunity to grow and become more like Him through that situation.
