Something Brand-New

A new year brings with it the hope of new beginnings.

God is about to do something brand-new.

I can feel it deep within me. I believe it for me—and I believe it for you.

Please know as you read the below text that I have declared this ancient holy breathed promise over you…my companions along the journey.

This is what God says,
the God who builds a road right through the ocean,
who carves a path through pounding waves,

The God who summons horses and chariots and armies—
they lie down and then  . . .  c a n 't   g e t   u p;
they're snuffed out like so many candles:

"Forget about what's happened;
don't keep going over old history.

Be alert, be present.

I'm about to do something brand-new.
It's bursting out!
Don't you see it?
There it is!

I'm making a road through the desert,
rivers in the badlands.

Wild animals will say 'Thank you!'
—the coyotes and the buzzards—

Because I provided . . .

water in the desert,
rivers through the sun-baked earth,
Drinking water for the people I chose,
the people I made especially for myself,
a people custom-made to praise me.   Isaiah 43:16-21 The Message

Trust Me, Beloved. I am about to do something brand-new.

Believing with you and for you,

What are you believing for in this new year?

Here or somewhere…be real.
Share your journey.

  1. My spirit shouts with joy, "I see it! I see it! I see the something brand new!" I feel so many emotions joy, peace, elation, concern (any new adventure challenges our faith). On New Year's Eve God birthed two words in my spirit, "new" and "adventure." I must trust Him to take me to the places I never dreamed I would go and while it presents great challenges, I cannot, I will not be afraid to lay hold of the new adventure/the abundant life that He has already provided! I am believing for the impossible to be made possible in His name and for His glory!

  2. Yes, He always desires to do great, new things in us! Can't wait to see what's ahead for you!
