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. Isa 43:18-19
Part of my sharing tomorrow will include this. It’s God’s word for the group, and it’s God’s word for myself too !
One point to note, Yes our Lord is doing a new thing, but I can miss it. He says in the word, “Now it springs up; do you not perceive it ?” Could it be possible that the new thing He is doing is right in front of me, yet I have entirely no idea ?? Yes it’s possible. And scripture discloses how this happens in verse 18, when we allow ourselves to be fixated on past failures (or even successes !)
So I have to ask myself, am I so fixed on my failures that I don’t see the new things God has already put in front of me ? These could be the very things God wants to put in my life, that will lead me completely away from sexual sin.
Holy Spirit, open my eyes that I may see His glory, that I may walk in His ways to take up these new things !
