Isaiah 43:16, 18-19 “I am the Lord, who opened a way through the waters, making a dry path through the sea. But forget all that—it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. 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.”

So many people are waiting for the ball to drop, the countdown to begin for the New Year but the reality for believers is that the New Year has already begun. God has been shifting some things around at the end of the year. He’s already doing something new.

When we look back on the last few years we can see that it was nobody but God that led us through the “Res Sea” of the recession on dry ground but God says through the prophet Isaiah, “Forget all that! I’m about to do something that doesn’t even compare to that!”

New Years Eve is when say goodbye to our past. We are going to meet at New Direction Christian church to leave it all behind! (go to for details) As good as God was in the past his promise is that I’m going to make everything new!

  1. He’s already doing it! Just the other day we got word that our funding gap was completed to build our new middle school and performing arts center at Eden Square. 3 days before the end of the year!
  2. Do you not see it?! You have to have some spiritual discernment to see that God is already doing something new in your life. The shift has been subtle but he’s been moving. When it fully manifests this year it’s going to blow your mind!
  3. I will make a pathway through the wilderness. Even though your circumstances haven’t changed God is getting ready to navigate a way of escape so that you get through what you are going through. You are coming out of the woods this year!
  4. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. In other words God will create sources of income where it used to be a drought! This is the year that you create multiple streams of income instead of being in a dry place.

Dear God,

We are ready for the “New Thing” you are doing in our lives as we make up our minds to head in a New Direction from the inside out. God I am so ready for this new thing! I’m ready to forget about my past and walk into my future. Lead me, guide me along the way for if you lead me I will not stray. Do a new thing in me and for me this year I pray!

In Jesus Name,
