Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
Isaiah 43:18-19 (KJV)
To take hold of the newness of life that is available to us in Christ Jesus, we must let go of the old. Scripture tells us we are to not even consider the things of old, but instead focus on what God is looking to do right here and right now. Let us realize that we serve a God who wants to continuously take us down new roads and lead us into new rivers of His goodness. Our role is to lay hold of this by faith, and to then live each day expectant of seeing God’s goodness and grace in our lives.
