Why Can’t You See The New Thing? #Focus

stay focused

Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? (Isa 43:19) ~ Too many times, God is working in our lives, showing us favor, enriching us, changing us, protecting us, sending us healing, but we don’t recognize and therefore don’t experience His goodness because we are focused on what we were, what we see, feel or have gone through in the past. We brand ourselves, other people and situations by what we or they were and don’t allow ourselves to see the glory of God’s work in us and them. God is in our midst, but we are so wrapped up in ourselves, our past, the past that hurt us, affected us; the past that we claim has made us…that we don’t even recognize Him, experience Him or get to know Him! God is giving us blessings throughout our lives, but we are so depressed by and distraught on the old that we can’t see the new! God’s goodness is on display. The question is do you see it? Put off the old man! In Christ all things are made new! We are replenished daily; we are made new….daily. Old things are passed away and all things are made new! You are not what you’ve been through, because God’s graces and mercies are new every morning.  Every day, He is doing a new thing and as long as your eyes open – He is telling you to look and see it!
