Read Isaiah 43:16-21

16Long ago the Lord made a road through the sea,
a path through the swirling waters.
17He led a mighty army to destruction,
an army of chariots and horses.
Down they fell, never to rise,
snuffed out like the flame of a lamp!
18 But the Lord says,
“Do not cling to events of the past
or dwell on what happened long ago.
19Watch for the new thing I am going to do.
It is happening already—you can see it now!
I will make a road through the wilderness
and give you streams of water there.
20Even the wild animals will honour me;
jackals and ostriches will praise me
when I make rivers flow in the desert
to give water to my chosen people.
21They are the people I made for myself,
and they will sing my praises!”

Think

When the people of Israel are in exile - Isaiah faithfully proclaims the hope that God will rescue them:
"Do not cling to events of the past or dwell on what happened long ago.  Watch for the new thing I am going to do..."
- Isaiah 43:18-19

Pray

Ask God to help you to 'watch for the new things' that he is going to do.
