I am about to do a new thing;
now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? (Isaiah 43:18,19)
Remember that time when God saved you? Delivered you? Brought you home from exile? Remember that? Good.
Now forget about it.
Remember that time when you felt regret and despair? Convinced that the world and God would be better off without you? God came through. Remember that? Good.
Now forget about that.
Remember the longing? The desperation? The homecoming? The relief? Good.
Now forget about all of that. Perceive a new thing God is about to do. Perceive it.
