For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. – Isaiah 43:19
Prepare for something new! We go through Advent expectantly. When Jesus was born in Bethlehem, only a few knew that a miracle had occurred and that it was just the beginning of something the world had never seen before. While the plan had been in place since the earth started turning, the course of time had to flow as scheduled, in order to prepare us for that precise moment when the new direction could be revealed.
God continues to make a way for us today, out of the wilderness of confusion, the dry paths of hopelessness, and into a flood of purpose and contentment. His greatest creation was a baby, whose life and sacrifice would make it possible for us to start again fresh, out of rubble and ruin. Prepare your heart this Christmas for something new it has been prepared for you!
