READ: Isaiah 43:18-19 "But forget all that -- it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.
Maybe you feel like your in a wasteland. A dry period of your life that seems unimportant or the outlook seems bleak. Believe me -- I have been there. There was a time in my life when I didn't really know how I would go on. I was facing every single day feeling like no one saw me, and no one cared. I carried an internal pain inside of me that burned like a flaming fire that never went out. I remember I gave my testimony in church that God would carry me through and he would make a way.... the doctors may have had no way.... but I KNEW that God did.
In our scripture today God is saying to you: "Forget your past, forget your mistakes, forget your failures and your fears - you are my child and I am going to take care of you. Nothing is impossible for me. When you see no end, I only see the beginning. I have a destiny for you and if you walk with me, I will make it happen. You see only a dry wasteland, but I see springs of living water that will bubble up from you and produce the victories that I have destined you for. See I have already begun to do something new. You don't see it, but trust me.... I'm working all things together for your benefit and for your best! Trust me because I love you. I am yours and you are MINE. Love, Your Heavenly Father!"
