We are now nine days into the year and almost through the first working week. I hope that you are noticing differences in your thoughts. I hope that you are beginning to see the start of the transformations you dreamed of last week. And I hope that you are able to shout this!
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 43:19 NIV)
Now of course, this is not really a reference to making changes in your heart. This is really a message of the Creator making changes in Israel and bringing salvation around again. However, I think this is a verse that you could ponder throughout the day. As you turn it over, I am sure you can discover the rich connection it has with the renewal we experience through the Christ and his new thing – complete forgiveness, mercy and grace.
