New International Version (NIV)
18 “Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
It was just about a week ago that I was praying and opened my Bible to the above verses and it was like I was reading the morning paper. I knew God was sending me a current message through passages I had read countless times before. I knew God was letting me know that this year would in no way resemble last year. God Is doing something new!
Sometimes you can just feel it. There are things that were important to me just a little while ago that are no longer important. I’ve gone through a lot of transition and change but there is more to come. I can sense it.
One major change is the time I spent online visiting a particular message board. This particular place was a source of great pain for me and suddenly it’s like God took away the desire to visit there in this season. To me it feels like this is a permanent change. Going there no longer serves a purpose in my life. God is doing something new and it’s called manifestation.
If you haven’t figured it out by now or missed my posts in the past, I have had an online “connection”, but I believe that soon God is going to allow what is from Him to break out into my “real life”. So being online is no longer a part of the equation. It’s a radical change. In one sense, I feel blind, but in another sense, it’s quite liberating.
Then, the other morning, I was reading the following prophetic word posted on my Facebook page and it lifted my spirits:
JUST Heard THIS for YOU: God is getting READY to GIVE You Your OWN!!!!!! Oh YEAH!!!!! I would DANCE and SHOUT if I were YOU!!!!! You CELEBRATED with OTHERS, Now it’s Your TIME to Make some NOISE!!!!!! RECEIVE This!!!!! Apostle Clement M. Neely
I was so encouraged by this because everyday I have been asking God to enable me to move into my own place. So I know God is answering my prayers.
I am clear on a lot that God is saying, but of course we don’t know it all. I just know God is telling me along with many of your that he is making ALL THINGS NEW!
