“But forget all that—it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?” (Isaiah 43:18-19, NLT).
In these verses God assures Israel of its coming restoration from Babylon’s rule.
While Israel’s deliverance from Babylonian captivity would be similar to its deliverance from Egyptian bondage, God was going to do a much greater thing.
God was not limited to doing the same miracles in the same way He had done in the past. God had some even greater miracles in mind for Israel’s future.
Everything in your life to this point is in the past.
And, God isn’t concerned so much about what He has done in your past, even though He may have done many wonderful things. God wants you to focus on what He can do in your future.
Because with God, there’s only the future!
So all the great and wonderful things He has done in your past does not limit what He can do and wants to do right now and in your future!
What God wants to do with you is something greater than the totality of all your previous experiences with God!
And, it’s something marvelous, something wonderful, something new!
“And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” (Revelation 21:5, NLT).
