Pastor Timothy's Devotional


This  is a word from Pastor Timothy Burdick, Minister of Abilities for Friday Study Ministries:

Something New

Isaiah 43:19 says, ďSee, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wastelandĒ

Have you ever likened your life to a "desert" in all its unfruitfulness? The good news is that even through spiritually dark times, ill health and other problems, God can make a way for you. He will bring a way of new opportunity and hope. Oh, maybe your troubles wonít magically disappear, but there will always be someone with you to share the load if you will let Him.

The first step is perceiving that He wants to do something new in your life. But many times we get so entrenched in our ruts that we canít or donít want to see it. But be encouraged and leave that thinking behind, even if you donít feel like it. Begin to thank God for bringing you out of the "desert." Take a step of faith, for with His help, you can do the impossible, in the power and love of God.

The change may be slow, but if you keep on, you will begin to see "streams in the wasteland" of your life. Yes, God wants to do a new thing for you in 2009.
