Isaiah 43:19King James Version
19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
What does it mean when God says he is doing a new thing?
When God is doing something new, it sometimes requires us to step into the unknown, which may feel uncomfortable, scary, and even unpleasant at first. We might be tempted to hold on to the life we know where everything is familiar. But we need to let go of the old, trust God and embrace what He is doing
Take a moment to really let those words sink in and think about this: If it really wasn’t “too late,” what are some things you would do? Would you go back to school to earn your degree? Would you reconcile with an old friend or attempt to make up for past mistakes? Would you follow your passion in life—something you’re naturally gifted at doing—and try to fulfill your goals and dreams?
Whatever it may be, God wants you to know that it’s never too late to begin again and have a great life. He is on your side and, if need be, He can even “put a road in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.”
Determination Is a Must
One of the greatest things we can do to cooperate with God’s plan for our lives is stay determined. I’ve learned that when you feel discouraged, when others doubt or criticize you, and when your dreams seem like they’re just never going to happen, that’s when you need to keep moving forward!
