Lord, you say in Isaiah 43:19 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. That is who you are Lord; You are the God who makes all things new. And you make us new, Lord. You promise in 2 Corinthians 5:17 that anyone who belongs to you has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! That’s what you do, Lord. You make a pathway through the wilderness. You create rivers where there is only dry wasteland. And for those who belong to you, Lord, you leave the old life behind, in that wasteland. Then you create in us an entirely new life, complete with rivers of living water (Jn 7:38).
And so, Lord, I say with Paul in Philippians 3:12-14 I press on to lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has laid hold of me. Lord, you laid hold of me, for an eternal purpose and an eternal goal. And so, Lord, Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which you, through Christ Jesus, have called me.
In Revelation 21:5 you say, I am making everything new! And then you remind me Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true. I will write it down Lord, for all that you tell me is trustworthy and true. You indeed make all things new, including me. For your glory and in your name, amen.
