HFG 1/11/12 'A New Thing'
Ice-Breaker: What NEW thing would you like to see come to pass this year?
Behold, I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?
I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
God will be the source of new & renew.
It will spring forth - illustration, Jack in the Box - will happen suddenly, just don't know WHEN. Got to keep turning the crank.
Keep on keeping on...
Acts 2 "'suddenly' there came a sound from heaven.."
But would not have experienced it had they not patiently obeyed & waited... "Go tarry 'until'" Lk 24:49
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
There is coming a due season..
IF you continue to plant & water, God WILL give the increase.
He will even make a way in wilderness...
-won't forsake you
-give you guidance & direction in your confusion.
-He is a way maker where IS no way.
"and rivers in the dessert"
He will provide, even miraculously if need be.
-specializes in impossible
I Am - I'm possible!
The very existence of Israel is daily testimony of this promise. Surrounded by enemies sworn to destroy her. World pressure to concede land to Palestinians who'd like nothing better than to overtake her, fed weapons by Israel's sworn enemies.
But daily Israel can look to Mt Hermon, feeding rivers & streams to make dessert bloom like rose, fertile farmlands make her self sufficient.
Gods promised provision will come to pass!!!
Way back in Deuteronomy 15:6
For the Lord thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee.
For first time in modern history Israel has made net gains against foreign debt deficit, annually since 2002.
Namely Israel is now a creditor, with the world owing it more than Israel owes the world, with a net difference of $50b in 2010.
Question 1: has God ever done the impossible for you before? Share an example!
Question 2: Are you facing something now that requires a miracle?
Question 3: How long are you willing to wait on the Lord?
Question 4: if always do... So, what new thing are YOU going to do this year?
