“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
Of the many tools of the Enemy, one is his ability to constantly remind us of our past mistakes. And he does so with the goal of keeping us from the forgiveness and grace offered through Jesus. That’s why it’s vital that as Christian’s, we know the difference between healthy remorse that leads to positive change and unproductive regret. And more importantly to remember the promises of God. Including making a, “way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” This means that no matter what we face, God has the power to provide a path forward. And we can trust in His ability to lead us through life’s wilderness moments and to quench our spiritual thirst in times of drought. The Lord invites us to let go of past regrets and be open to new beginnings. And He calls us to remain hopeful, knowing that He is continually working for our good, even when we can’t see it. This in turn inspires us to face life’s challenges with faith. Fully believing that God can transform even the most barren situations into opportunities for growth, purpose, and renewal.
