April 11

Isaiah 43:18-19

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 desert and streams in the wasteland.

I think it’s okay to remember the past…it’s a way for God to remind us of His faithfulness. Where we get into trouble is when we dwell there. Part of the Old English origin of the word “dwell” is…”lead astray, hinder, delay”. That’s exactly what dwelling in the past will do…it will lead us astray and hinder or delay our walking in freedom with the Lord.

For the prodigal, who may be affected by their past and tend to camp out in that place, I pray that their eyes are opened to the “new thing” God wants to do in their lives. I pray they can feel it springing up inside them even today!

Note…God doesn’t say he’s doing away with the desert or wasteland, but He’s making a way through them- Hallelujah!

One thought on “April 11

  1. Love the verses for today and still praying for my grandchildren’s salvation. . John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him. I am the way, the truth, and the life no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
