“Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:19, NASB)

I had been looking at the verse for a few days, pondering how it would speak to my heart. It began to settle on three words:

  1. Doing. He is doing a new thing. “Doing” means that He is making or creating that new thing. His reason? To show us His faithfulness.
  2. Awareness. We need to perceive what He is doing. The problem lies with our lack of awareness of His activity. May He give us eyes that see and ears that hear. May we be willing to see and hear. He asks the question of us, “Will you not be aware of it?”
  3. Change. He is making a way and bringing about a change ”“ a change in circumstances. A change in us.

God is in the habit of causing new growth to spring up in places we do not expect to see growth. Notice that the place in which He makes the way is “in the desert” and “in the wasteland”. In neither place would we have high expectations of growth or production. Yet our God chooses those very places to demonstrate Himself to us. Perhaps good questions to ask ourselves today would be:

“Where is the desert in my life?”
“Where is the wasteland?”
