Behold, the former things have come to pass, And new things I declare; Before they spring forth I tell you of them. Isaiah 42:9 NKJV
Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19 NKJV
Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know. Jeremiah 33:3 NKJV
Fifty new churches are planted in Africa every day. There is revival taking place in China and India. Muslims all over the world are denouncing Islam and turning to Christ.
Jesus wants to interact with us today. He wants us to call out to Him in our time of need and in our time of plenty. The Lord wants to guide us and direct us. He wants to be our counselor and our comforter today.
Jesus wants to be our friend. That does not detract from His sovereignty or His holiness.
If we listen for His voice Jesus will speak to us in a variety of ways. God did not create us and leave us to ourselves. He is active in the world today!
My earthly father was a very active man. He was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease. He spent the last years of his life sitting in a chair. He was unable to eat, speak or even drink water. He was dying and did not know Christ.
I called out to the Lord on behalf of my father. God spoke to me. He said, “Your father is saved”. A short time later my father accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Jesus did a new thing in my father’s life even as he was slipping into eternity.
I think about that day often. To God my father was already saved. God wanted to me know He heard my cries. He wanted me to know He would save my father. Jesus wanted me to know He speaks to us.
The Lord is not just doing a new thing in the world. He is doing new things in the lives of His people. He is bringing salvation to the lost the lonely and the brokenhearted. Jesus is breathing healing and restoration into the lives of people who love Him.
Jesus is pouring out His Spirit and sparking revival in the hearts of His people!
Jesus wants you to know He hears you when you cry out to Him!
Jesus will be with you everywhere you go. He will guide you and direct you as you journey through life. Jesus will speak to you in a variety of ways if you listen for His voice. Jesus wants you to listen for His voice today!
