Isaiah 43:18-19 NKJV ....“Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old.19 Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will eveq make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.
I will say it again until it gets in your spirit, God wants to create something new in you! I will say it again God wants to create something new in you! That’s right little ol you, that’s right a ex this and ex that, some of you are saying to yourself preacher if you really knew what I used to be and do? Let me tell you the messier your past is the more powerful your message will be. This word EX is very powerful in the life of a believer, it means “out of, from,”.
SEE YOUR EX IS THE BEGINNING OF YOUR EXPECTATION OF YOUR NEW, YOU GOT TO HAVE A EX BEFORE YOU CAN GET AN EXPECTATION. Anybody out there got an EX? What is EXPECTATION it is believing that something is going to happen.
Labels can cling to us for a lifetime. Even Jesus was given labels (can anything good come from Nazareth John 1:46). Labels can be imprinted in our thinking and in our minds by what others say about us or things others do to us.
The problem is, it’s tough to change our stinking thinking and bad habits. Many of us have the IF ITS NOT BROKEN THAN DON’T FIX IT.....Mentality.
Our past suffocates our creativity and smothers out our fire and passion..
In (Exodus 14:21) God made a dry path through the sea. He turned the water into dry ground to give the Israelites a way to escape from Pharaoh! But now Isaiah says the opposite in (Isa 43:18-19) HE IS TURNING THE DRY PLACES INTO RIVERS. Just because He did it one way doesn’t mean He will do it the same way again.
In (John 7:37-38) Jesus said, 37 “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
God has new things for us. He wants us to anticipate new things—even streams in the desert, roads in the wilderness....BEHOLD I’M DOING A NEW THING....THE WORD BEHOLD means to look for it to spring forth, to LEAP!
GOD IS CREATING SOMETHING NEW IN YOU THATS TAILOR MADE JUST FOR YOU!
