Isaiah 43:19 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. 

I was standing in the middle of the tall overgrown grass on our 43 acres looking at the future spot of Eden Square Town Center. I could sense so much peace there. Looking at the plants sprouting through the cracks in the concrete I could see new buildings springing up. Looking at the pond and the fish jumping up to feed on the insects I could see our scholars at the wetland observatory. Standing in the middle of that desert I saw God doing a new thing.

Where you’re standing, can you see God? It may not look like much to you right now but can you see God? Other people gave up on it but you see God in it. God is asking you this morning, “I’m doing a new thing! Don’t you see it?”

In order to see God in a deserted place you have to have Vision. Vision is the ability to see divine potential where other people only see devastation. Without a vision the people perish. God says, “I’m doing something new…”

1. I’ve already begun! God is doing it right now. The thing you’ve been praying about. The thing you’ve been hoping for. The thing you’ve been dreaming of. It’s happening right now and you don’t even realize it. Don’t allow the wilderness to make you miss seeing the promise!

2. I will make a pathway through the wilderness. God is about to create a development out of what other people called a wilderness. God is about to do some Good in our Hood. The very place people use to drive past they will now drive in. God is making a way for you in the wilderness.

3. I will create rivers in the wasteland. God is about to create new streams of income in the place you thought had dried out. The place where you are people left because they thought the rivers had dried up. In actuality God is about to open up new possibilities for you to get income in place you didn’t expect for this kind of outcome. This time there will be multiple streams of income.

God,

Thank you for doing something new in a place I almost gave up in. This next season I’m glad you are developing a place of sustainability. Everybody who doubted me and doubted you will have to marvel at the new thing you are doing in my wilderness experience. I’m excited to see what the end is going to be!

In Jesus Name,

Amen
