15 I am the LORD, your Holy One,
Israel's Creator, your King."
16 This is what the LORD says—
He who made a way through the sea,
a path through the mighty waters,
17 who drew out the chariots and horses,
the army and reinforcements together,
and they lay there, never to rise again,
extinguished, snuffed out like a wick:
18 "Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert
and streams in the wasteland. [emphasis added]
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. [emphasis added]
These tiny white flowers [snow drops] appeared in my garden by the pond yesterday here at Shepherd's Walk. They reminded me of the 'newness of abundant life' that the Scriptures promise.
Are you perceiving the new season coming in your life? What does it hold for you? Where is God leading you after He has brought you out of a pit of despair or out of a great victory where He fought for you with His strength?
What is on your horizon?
