Read Isaiah 43:16-21


Read Isaiah 43:16-21

Long ago the Lord made a road through the sea,
   a path through the swirling waters.
He 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.
Watch 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.
Even the wild animals will honor me;
   jackals and ostriches will praise me
when I make rivers flow in the desert
   to give water to my chosen people.
They are the people I made for myself,
   and they will sing my praises!”
Good News Translation (GNT)

Verse 19: "Watch for a new thing I am going to do..."  God tells the people living in exile that he has a more spectacular plan than the plan of Exodus from Egypt - even the wild animals will see and be amazed...

Do you live with expectation knowing that you need not be trapped in the past but you may look forward to a bright future with God?


Open my eyes to watch for a new thing.
