Many this year may be assessing a ‘new’ calendar, or ‘new’ resolutions to begin at this time. Scripture holds true that it is important to see our Lord and Savior’s direction with all that we plan to do. Is this not true? For Isaiah 43:19 calls us as followers to see His hand working in and through our lives, even if we do not visibly see it with our natural eye. Could it be some are holding on to the past with anger or bitterness? Be alert! For a time has come that this Scripture can and will pierce your heart. For His Word is a Sword, and those who seek shall find His treasures. Our Lord and Savior is Mighty in every way, and if you set your eyes on Him will you see His path guide you through green pastures or a wilderness. For a wilderness is dry and barren, and many will choose to stay there. However, a river of living water will flow through a desert if faith is present and trusting what is unseen. How do I know? This Earth is temporary, and there will be seasons where conflict or drought will arise. But those who focus on His ways and His character know His Word is eternal, and His well is forevermore.
19 Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
