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 (NLT)
Our Father wants to do a new thing in our lives, but He can’t if we continue to be stuck in our past. We can allow discouragement and past failures keep us down. We keep replaying our past mistakes in our minds even though we have asked for forgiveness and God has forgiven us. He said as far as the east is from the west, this is how far He has removed our sins from us. If God can make dry land in the Red Sea, can He not make a road in the wilderness or rivers in a desert? We may think our life is over, but God says no. Look at Moses. He had status in Egypt by being a son of Pharaoh’s daughter. Yet he made one great mistake by killing a Egyptian who was beating on a Hebrew slave. He tried to hide it, but even his own people told on him. He lost everything. He became a shepherd in Midian and wandered in the wilderness for 40 years, but God was positioning him for his calling. God is positioning us. He is not through with us.
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6
