When… You Remember the Worst of the Past
“...For I will give water in the wilderness, rivers in the desert; to give drink for My chosen people, so that they might declare My praise.” Isaiah 43:20-21
When… you remember the worst of your past…
When… you feel defined by your failures…
When… you think the label people have put on you will never come off…
Consider what God keeps doing! God gives a new name created by Grace. “New creation” is what God promises to make us. God will guide us on a way through the desert, complete with resources along the way. God will give water to those who are thirsty in the desert of guilt. God will sustain us with mercy, not because we deserve it, but because this is the nature of our God.
So that… we will declare God’s praise.
So that… we will tell others what God does.
So that… they will come to hope in the LORD.
So that… they will see a way through their wilderness.
So that… The name of God will be a Name of Hope.
Speak to us, LORD, so we may speak in living echoes of Your Word! Amen.
