Welcome to Wednesday’s Words – a short, mid-week devotional to encourage you. I’m kicking off this new addition with one of my favorite verses:
“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 wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19
God doesn’t promise we won’t have difficulty, challenges or problems. In fact, quite the opposite – he assures us we will have trouble.
In my darkest night, my wasteland, God is there. Even as I wander lost in the wilderness feeling alone and scared, He is making a way.
I feel the pain of past hurts and regrets yet my Heavenly Father says, “Forget those former things – I have a new plan, something better.”
No matter what I’m going through, I can trust God is using it to lead me somewhere better.
He is the God of restoration who makes a way through the wilderness and provides living water in the wasteland.
What is your go-to scripture when you need encouragement?
