How Do You Define Your Future?

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. Isaiah 43:19

Do you realize how valuable you are to God?

All of us will face trials and temptations. We’ll go through ‘the fire’ and wade through ‘rough waters.’ Sometimes you cannot understand what’s going on and will want to give up. But God often uses the challenges and difficulties of life to shape us. He uses them to strengthen your character and advance His purpose in your life.

God always acts in love (Isaiah 43:3-4). In all the struggles and difficulties, God has a good plan for your future. If you are in a ‘desert’ or ‘wasteland’ right now, trust God that He will make a way through.

We’ll never fully walk in our destiny if we are defining our future by our past.

The definition of new is: never existing before, brand new, up to the minute, current, advanced, newborn, fresh, original. Past moves and miracles of God are nothing compared to what He can do in your future.
