Revive, Redeem, Resurrect, Restore.
Allow me to highlight a few points from the
message on this past Sunday. Our
Biblical text was Isaiah 43: 18-19; "Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert." The subject: "Better Days Ahead."
Yes, like Israel, many of us have been in our own types of wilderness. We have experienced despair and sickness. It seemed as if one parishioner after the next would come and share some devastating news with me. Nevertheless, we can give God a high note of praise. The Word of the Lord is very clear. God has promised to show us
"...a new thing; He promises to "make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert."
Timothy, I want to challenge you as the prophet Isaiah challenged Israel...Do not think your greatest victories with the Lord are behind you. Remember He promised to bring rivers into our deserts; into our dry, dead places he will bring the living, healing waters of the river.
Do not focus on the past but look to the future. Expect God to do a NEW THING in your life, in your family's life, and in the life of our church.
