“Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert” (Isaiah 43:19).
Just a few days from the new year, it’s impossible know what new will be introduced to any one of our lives. Death, birth, misfortune, relocation, sickness, vocational change—the new of a new year can take on any number of endless possibilities. Though Israel could never have imagined how God would deliver them and redeem their circumstances, he did. God is a God of the new—new beginnings, new challenges, new possibilities. Each one leads to his purposes and glory.
