See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:19
I had tiles laid on our kitchen wal as a simple artwork but we were one piece less. Finally when i brought a box of the same, the mason fitted them in my absence. It took me two days to notice that the space was complete. This is a wall where our stove is. Within these two days i prepared meals on the stove looking at the wall in front of me but never noticing the difference.
On the second day as i sat in the living room, it suddenly occurred to me that something was different! The tiling was complete. This got me thinking, how many things escape my notice just because am so used to them that each time i see them i see no change, if there is. If you are anything like me, you are so set in your usual ways that you hardly notice the new things the Lord Is doing in your life, hence you miss out on some blessings time and again. The scripture above awakens us to notice, to discern, to be sensitive to what God Is doing in our lives within ourselves and our surroundings. Sensitize your spiritual self to notice every new thing the Lord Is doing in your life. It is the small things that add up together and make the huge difference. You may keep praying for something the Lord has already given you just because you are blinded to it. Or because it did not arrive in the package you expected or hoped for. May the Lord open your Spiritual mind, eyes and ears so you can perceive every new thing He Is doing for you!
An insightful and peaceful week ahead.
