Isaiah 42:9, Isaiah 43:18-19: Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them. *Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
In the same way an angel of God appeared to Mary to inform her of the new thing that God wanted to do in her life, I pray that this season you will receive divine visitations and revelations from God about the new things He wants to do in your life both now and in the coming year.
God is declaring new things and like our text above says, He wants to tell you of them before they spring forth. As you fellowship with God, He will reveal these things to you by His Spirit, 1Cor.2:9-10. The Holy Spirit will not only show you things to come, He will prepare you for them.
In this upcoming year, God will not only grant you your heart’s desires,
He will give you things that eyes have not seen, ears have not heard and
minds have not even imagined. He will do glorious things in your life.
What God has in mind for you is far greater than what you have in mind
for yourself, Isa.55:8-9.
You will experience new dimensions of God. New things are going to spring forth out of your life. Do not limit God. As you call on God this season, He will show you great and mighty things that you know not, Jer.33:3. These will include hidden things that He has ordained for your glory, 1Cor.2:7. God wants you to end this year both with gratitude and with hope. Your expectation will not be cut off, Prov.23:18. Prepare yourself for new things.
Prayer Focus: Thank God again for the glorious year that is
ending tomorrow and ask God to prepare you for the new things
that He has in mind for you.
