Isaiah 43:18-19

I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?

We read in the scriptures great stories of how God moved among the Israelites, the Galileans and the early Christians.  We ask God to move in events to come.  But God never settles for the past tense or the future tense. God is moving in the present tense.  “I am about to do a new thing; now it springs fourth, do you not perceive it?” Isaiah 43:19.    Great stories of faith from the past embolden us to live with hope and clarity.  The promises of eternity call and guide us.  However we are living this very moment right now.  We forget that is where God lives as well.  So we have to show up to each moment, looking for God.  Perceiving is up to us.

“Wake up” Spirit calls to us.  “I am springing fourth within you each moment, each heartbeat.  Don’t miss it!”
