Will You Not Know It?

It amazes me that I am still amazed at how God decides to move in my life. I don’t think I’ll ever fully understand which is why having faith is so important.

On Sunday I made a video and I talked about running away and feeling empty and basically just crying out for answers.

Later that day, I decided to take a look at Saturday night’s church bulletin. I had stuffed it into my Bible after church on Saturday and I really didn’t take the time to read it. Every weekend the pastor publishes a different article. Here are some excerpts from this week’s article entitled, Will You Not Know It?

Our heavenly Father says to each of us, “Behold I do a new thing, now it shall spring forth. Will you not know it? (Isaiah 43:19).

Will you not know it? God can bring new people into our lives in order to forge a strategic connection for our future, and we can miss it if we are dull of spirit. God can give us new insights for business, but they can remain dormant if we do not respond in faith. God can give us new revelation into prayer, but our prayer lives can remain on life-support if we don’t act on what God shows us.

Will you not know it? God is doing something new right now in your life – even as you are reading this article. His Spirit is speaking something to your spirit, if you will listen. He may be warning you about a decision you are about to make or encouraging you to try something really different. He could be at work in your circumstances by opening a door or closing one that will keep you on track in your family He may right now be answering your prayer in a new and unexpected way.

Will you not know it? This fall, the most powerful Person in the universe is taking a special interest in your future, your circumstances and your soul. His Spirit is ready to take you to a whole new level and He is asking you to be ready and willing to respond to Him in faith. God is doing a new thing…for you. Now give him praise!

God’s timing is incredible. This article touched on the very topic that I was trying to articulate in the video. I trust that God has it under control. I trust that He is doing a new thing in me. I will lean not unto my own understanding but in all my ways I will acknowledge Him and He will direct my path (Proverbs 3:5-6). I really needed to read this article in order to give me a “jump start”. I know what God is able because He has proven it in my life over and over again.
