BEHOLD, I DO A NEW THING!

Carol Clegg-Lamptey

Afehyia pa ooooo!!!
Afi ooo afi!!!
Happy new year!!!

The first two are the languages Twi and Ga (my mother tongue), both ways of saying happy new year here in Ghana. Thus far has the good Β Lord brought us!
Ebenzezer!
Feels great to back! πŸ˜‡

One testimony I loved hearing yesterday was this – God is good.
When things are going well, God is good.
When things are not going well, God is still good.
What ever the case,.. GOD IS GOOD!!!!

It’s so not about us.
This was the opening line in Chapter One of β€˜The Purpose Driven Life β€˜ by Rick Warren β€” β€œIt’s not about you”.

The topic for this blog has been on my mind for a while.
I wondered where it would lead.

Well, here we are. πŸ˜ƒ

2024
Woooooow!
Sometimes, it’s like you expect some grand change in the elements as one year rolls into the next.
But as the Bible goes in Genesis in the creation story – and there was evening and there was morning, the next day! πŸ˜…

God said – I am doing a new thing!
What have you been trusting God for?
What have you been crying to Him about?
What have you been yearning for?

God will certainly not give us anything that would cause us to drift from Him, BUT He is a prayer answering God.
No doubt about it! The answer may be yes, no or wait.

Is it your marriage, your children, your job, your career progression, your future, anything at all???
Keep trusting, keep hoping and you know what, …keep praising.
There is victory in praise!

He who promised is faithful; never forget this fact.
HE WORKS ALL THING FOR THE GOOD OF THOSE WHO LOVE HIM AND ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE!
(Romans 8:28)
AMEN OOO!!!

Let’s read :

Isaiah 43:14-19 NLT –

For your sakes I will send an army against Babylon,
forcing the Babylonians to flee in those ships they are so proud of.

15 I am the LORD, your Holy One,
Israel’s Creator and King.

16 I am the LORD, who opened a way through the waters,
making a dry path through the sea.

17 I called forth the mighty army of Egypt
with all its chariots and horses.
I drew them beneath the waves, and they drowned,
their lives snuffed out like a smoldering candlewick.

18 β€œBut forget all thatβ€”
it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.

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.

 

God bless you!! πŸ€—πŸ€—

Wishing you the very best of the year.

Daily fix your eyes on Jesus. For He is the author and perfecter of our faith!
