“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
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 43:18-19 NIV
Rest your weary head, for God has declared that He is doing a new thing for you!
I speak this aloud and declare it for myself as well as for you. Over our homes and our families, over our weary bodies, lean bank accounts, and worried minds.
At every turn, we feel defeated and cast aside, like a stray dog hunting scraps from the table instead of an honored friend or daughter at a dinner given by our King.
It’s how the enemy would like us to feel. Forgotten. Mistreated. Trodden down at every turn. Discouraged.
