“This is what God says, the God who builds a road right through the ocean,
who carves a path through pounding waves,
the God who summons horses and chariots and armies–
they lie down and then can’t get up; they’re snuffed out like so many candles:
‘Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history.
Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new.
It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it?'”
Isaiah 43:16-19 (The Message)
My dad mentioned this verse as a great one for a new year, and I thought I would share it today. May 2013 be a year when we are able to be alert and present and able to see whatever God is doing.
