“For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” -Isaiah 43:19

God is always doing a new thing, the question is — are we a part of what He is doing? When we step out in faith, willing to serve God wherever He calls us, we can be sure that an adventure is ahead. Everyone who has gone on a WOW mission trip returns with stories of exciting adventures, unexpected challenges, and moments that tested their faith. Yet every story also ends with a reminder that God is always doing a new thing.

It says in 1 Corinthians 2:9 that “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” This verse is such a humble reminder that even our greatest visions or dreams will not be as good as God’s. His ways are rarely what we expect, though always, in the end, they are the best.
“If you are facing a crossroads…a decision or situation that requires faith to take the next step, meditate on God’s Word and be encouraged by the testimony of others who have stepped out in faith. Whatever circumstances you face, being in God’s will is the safest place to be.
God is doing a new thing. Will you be a part of what He is doing?
