Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
During the time Jesus spent on earth, much of it was spent doing “new” things. He performed miracles no one ever saw before. He broke rules of society that no one else would ever dare challenge. Day after day, encounter after encounter, Jesus did new things. The resurrection itself was the very definition of new: the only Son of God walked the earth, was crucified and raised from the dead, to finish out his work and call down His Holy Spirit for the people before ascending into heaven.
I have to wonder: would WE have been able to accept these new things, like the people in the bible did? Or, would we have missed out on what Jesus was doing because it wasn’t familiar to us? Do we still miss out today? God is moving and doing a new thing in our lives even now, but we miss it when we aren’t willing to see it.
He has the answers to our prayers and questions; He provides our healing and blessings. If we look for them only in the way they have always come, we will surely miss any new thing from Him.
Father IS doing a new thing in your life. Meditate on how He is working in your life right now, and ask Him: Father, open my eyes more than ever before, to see every new thing you are doing in me. Shift my focus, or my perspective, to line up with yours, because I don’t want to miss anything from you.
