New Year New Thing

Standard

“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

What new thing is God doing in and/or through you? There should be something. He is our creator and He creates constantly. We need to look for the new things He is opening up around us. So many of us get content with status quo. Nope. Not enough if you believe and follow Jesus Christ. He makes all things new. He creates new. He who began a good work in you will complete it. All of these verses point to His creativity and desire for progress. Status quo isn’t an option for God with us. Our goal is to become like Him. Huge goal. We will never achieve it fully on earth. If we settle and stop looking for new, we are going to be leaps and bounds away from that goal.

How can you measure progress? You don’t react to that friend as you normally would when she pushes your buttons. You took time to read God’s word and pray today. You set aside your need to help someone else in need. All of those are steps to becoming more like Christ.  As for the new thing, you are becoming new and improved with each one of these steps.

So I ask again, what new thing is God doing in and/or through you? It’s happening. He’s the creator and He’s creating in you so let Him do His work by looking for His hand on your life.

Dream Big! Pray Big!
