Isaiah 43:16-19

Is 43

This is what the LORD says—
he who made a way through the sea,
a path through the mighty waters,
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:
“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.”

  1. Oh, how stirring!!!! Thank you again, Jonie, for all of the encouragement in the Lord that you send!!!

  2. It was beautiful reading these Scripture verses Jonie. I felt as if God was reminding me to “forget the former things” and “not dwell on the past” (something I managed to accomplish in 2010!) ..
    and that wonderful assurance, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way ….”
    I have seen God “make a way” thru the “sea” of my life in this past year, a “path through the mighty waters” .. “drawing out” those things from my life that “warred” with me … and I’m choosing to believe that, like the words say, those things will “lie there, never to rise again, extinguished, snuffed out like a wick”.
    In 2010 my focus was on HOPE, and as the year drew to a close I was so encouraged to see that HOPE was still very much “alive and well” in my life, and as I was reflecting on it, the word ANTICIPATION came to me, and I believe it’s what God wants me to take into 2011 as my new focus, to add to “hope”.
    I was SO encouraged with this “post” of yours Jonie . . . THANK you ! ! ! !

  3. Jonie, this is beautiful, thank you, I have these verses up on my wall in the office, thank you for sharing them.
