God is Doing A New Thing!

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
Have you ever felt as if your prayers alone weren’t enough to solve your problems?
Life is difficult. That is a proven fact. Sometimes we want to know if we’re getting close to the end of the crisis we’re in. We want to know what lies ahead, especially if we are about to make a significant decision. We also have our doubts about God and question if our problem is too large for him to solve.
The new year cannot promise anything to us, but we have a God who keeps his promises. This year may be as unpredictable as previous ones, but we have a God who loves us the same way he did yesterday, today, and forever. He is always trustworthy and all-knowing. Because what is concealed from us is not hidden from God, we can always trust him and place our hopes in him. God is doing a new thing! Nothing comes as a surprise to God. He can make a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
We can lie down and sleep peacefully at night if we believe in God’s limitless possibilities. Allow God to perform his job this year by allowing this truth to calm us.
What seems impossible for us is possible for God, we only have to believe!
