“This is what the Eternal One says, the One who does the impossible, the One who makes a path through the sea, a smooth road through tumultuous waters,
Eternal One: Don’t revel only in the past, or spend all your time recounting the victories of days gone by.
Watch closely: I am preparing something new;
it’s happening now, even as I speak, and you’re about to see it.
I am preparing a way through the desert;
Waters will flow where there had been none.”
(Isaiah 43:18-19 VOICE)
When You speak, Father God, we know that behind Your words lives our God of the Universe, Who alone is able to make a pathway through the tumult of our lives on this earth. Trusting You, God, we come to the end of this year as we count on our calendars… You are trustworthy. As we watch closely, according to Your instruction through the prophet Isaiah, may we also listen carefully as You speak and reveal to us the map of our coming year – by minutes, hours, days. Sitting in silence before You, we wait, surrendering bit by bit our wills to Your will… our choice. May You be glorified, Lord God.
