The writer of Isaiah exults in joyful anticipation of exiled Judah’s restoration to Palestine. God has concern for the exiles. God has a covenant relationship with the people.
This passage reminded me of the Exodus story of the deliverance through the Red Sea. God’s assurance then, and now, is always with us. God is constantly doing something new. We need to see! We need to be aware of the newness of every day – – every experience – – and be thankful!
Think about TRUST. We place our trust in God. Others?
The dictionary defines “trust” as firm reliance – – confident belief – – assured hope. We rely on God – – we depend on God! Can God depend on us?
God, may our lives reflect our commitment to you.
We shout out with joy in response to Your love.
Help us, always, to remember, to behold, and to obey.
Thank you God! Alleluia! Amen!

The prophet contends that God is “about to do a new thing: now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?” God will “make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Recall the darkest season of your life. How did God’s doing a new thing – making a way in the wilderness – rivers in the desert – save you? How could your willingness to share your witness of God’s new thing in your life become a prophetic word to another who is currently experiencing a dark season?
