Every time that I read this verse, it truly impacts me. One thing that always strikes me is the Lord’s enthusiasm. He is excited about His making a way for us to make peace with Him and live through Him! Thing is, He wants us to see it with Him. He wants us to recognize the Hope He has brought us in the wilderness and wasteland of our hearts and lives. The Lord wants us to see AND experience the streams of Living Water through Jesus, who makes all things new every moment of every day for those who believe.
Many of the people who the Lord gives us to minister to through MALTA are or feel as though they are struggling through a wasteland that is without end. Thankfully we can bring compassion, grace, and the TRUTH of the Lord’s never-ending love. May we believe and receive the newness He is offering every day and share this Truth with others.
Blessed & Happy New Year!
"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."
