New Things

 

“I am the Lord, that is My name;

And My glory I will not give to another,

Nor My praise to carved images.

Behold, the former things have come to pass,

And new things I declare;

Before they spring forth I tell you of them.”

Isaiah 42:8-9 [NKJV]

 

God tells us that the past is gone forever.

He declares NEW things for us.

And the new things of God are good things.

 

Sorrow and suffering are replaced by joy and happiness.

Disease and illness are replaced by health and wellness.

Poverty is replaced by plenty.

Anger is replaced by love.

Confusion is replaced by understanding.

Jealousy is replaced by contentment.

Closed doors are replaced by open doors.

Lost ways in the wilderness will be replaced by straight paths.

Dryness in the desert will be replaced by rivers.

 

Our God has declared that the former things are past.

He is the present and the future.

 

“Do not remember the former things,

Nor consider the things of old.

Behold, I will do a new thing,

Now it shall spring forth;

Shall you not know it?

I will even make a road in the wilderness

And rivers in the desert.”

Isaiah 43:18-19 [NKJV]
