“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19 (ESV)
I love this verse! Do you ever feel trapped in a desert? I know I have. There are those days when the well of your soul feels as though it has completely dried up, when everything feels like it’s going wrong, when you feel like everyone is taking pieces of you, but giving nothing back. You are not alone. We all go through those seasons.
I’m a part of the worship team at my church, and inevitably, every time I feel stuck in one of those deserts, I happen to be assigned to sing Hillsong’s “Desert Song.” It reminds me that even in those seasons when I feel lost and abandoned, there is still and always a reason to praise our Savior. As Isaiah 43:19 reminds us, God has a plan and a purpose. He is a God of renewal and restoration. He will not leave you in this desert season. He seeks to refresh His purpose for your life.
This verse resonates with me as we head into spring. There is an idea of growth and rebirth as the flowers begin budding and the animals give birth to their young. Where do you need a refresh this season? Maybe you need a spiritual refresh. Seek God in his Word and by investing time with Him. Maybe you need a mental refresh. How is your outlook on life? Seek to identify the blessings around you. Maybe it’s a physical refresh. Recommit to eating healthy and investing time in your body.
