TOPIC: A New Thing
Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it?… – Isaiah 43:19 (AMPC)
Do you ever get really tired of doing the same old thing all the time? You might want to do something different, but you either don’t know what to do, or you’re afraid to step out and try the new thing you’ve been thinking about.
We often get into ruts, doing the same thing over and over—even though we’re bored with it—because we’re afraid to step out and do something different. How many times would we rather be safe and bored than excited and living on the edge? There’s a certain amount of comfort in sameness, which is why we often settle for it—we may not like it, but we’re familiar with it.
God has created you to need and crave diversity, variety, freshness and newness in your life. As this year and this day come to an end, make a quality decision to step out into the new thing God has for you. And don’t forget to enjoy yourself in the process!
Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for the new thing You’re doing in my life! Show me what my part is—how I can step out in faith—so I can join You in the work You’re doing. In Jesus’ name, amen.
